Joe Tortureman


I'd read about this earlier today on Joementum, but I knew that CTBlogger was going to put up a YouTube and I really wanted to see it with my own eyes before I wrote anything about it.  Yep, there's no mistake.  Here is Joe Tortureman on Imus, joking about…well, what else, torture:

I have particularly appreciated your interrogation of some of the other Democratic elected officials. And I’m very comforted to know that your interrogation is not covered by Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions. Heh-heh-heh.

Oh!!!  My sides, my sides.  The Geneva Convention is no longer even quaint, it's now devolved into schtick on Imus.  Yes, this is how seriously Joe considered his vote to institutionalize the United States as a nation of torturers.  Just another rubber chicken to whack the Democrats with, right?  Oh I can't breathe.  Joe you teh funny.  You really are.
