Too Awful for Either Words or Silence

I somehow can't let this pass without comment, and yet have nothing to say, either. The Bush administration copied torture techniques from Mao's dictatorship. As Andrew Sullivan put it, conservatism has come to copy communism.

"We have met the enemy, and it is us."

Oh, and as Eric Martin says:
One of the candidates, John McCain, wants to continue to permit our government to engage in a policy of torture gleaned from observing the methods employed by brutal Communist regimes. The other candidate, Barack Obama, doesn't.
That about sums it up.

Bush borrowed his torture techniques from Mao.

He, and everyone else involved, should stand for trial as war criminals. And then spend the rest of his life in a very small cell.
