Taibbi on the latest...

... bullshit from the Cheney family and from the GOP, generally, for the past many years....

And speaking of commentary on torture, Jesse Ventura may be a weird, wacko pink feather boa-wearing crazy man, but he was fairly succinct about what he thinks of Cheney's defense of torture:

LARRY KING: What was it [waterboarding] like?

VENTURA: It’s drowning. It gives you the complete sensation that you are drowning. It is no good, because you — I’ll put it to you this way, you give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I’ll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders.

Ventura, whether he realizes it or not, gets to the heart of the problem. Dick Cheney--and his daughter--can whine until Pluto falls into the sun, but, it was never about protection of the country. It was always about obtaining false confessions to match the lies that Dougie Feith and Donny Rummy and Emperor Palpatine Cheney cooked up.

It was never about anything but that. Take that to the bank, Ms. I-Love-Waterboarding-It's-S0-Refreshing.
