I can't believe I used to like this guy:
From Protein Wisdom :
From the conservative maverick St Andrew of the Trendy Hairshirt:
Here’s one detail about Don Rumsfeld’s summer home that a historian found poignant: it was once a renowmed [sic] center for torturing slaves. Frederick Douglass was assaulted there—and escaped. Of course, those slaves weren’t actually tortured, as Alberto Gonzales would argue. They were merely subject to “coercive disciplinary techniques”.
You know, I’d love to point out just how humiliated Sullivan should feel about posting something that—from both an historical perspective and the perspective of our current efforts to determine the boundaries of useful interrogation practices—is so objectively idiotic, but doing so would mean that Andrew could conceivably be found guilty of torturing himself, and I’m not sure John McCain has as yet told us how to deal with such a situation.
So, you know, I’m gonna take a wait and see attitude for the time being.
I wonder if they wrapped those slaves in Israeli flags?
