LET'S PLAY SEMANTICS, KIDS: WHITE HOUSE DENIES CHENEY ADVOCATES TORTURE

THE ELDRITCH WHITE HOUSE--Yes, you did advocate torture Mr. Co-President, and you are a criminal for doing-so. Semantics-games won't save you if your party loses the elections--or is unable to steal-them. We're not stopping with the GOP, the Democrats had better watch-their-asses too. It's a time of scoundrels, and all you can do is hope they undo-themselves, spiralling-downwards into-the-muck. Change-or-die. Ah, but here's Richard Cheney advocating-torture:

Q Would you agree a dunk in water [Ed.-considered torture by the Hague and under the Geneva convention] is a no-brainer if it can save lives?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: It's a no-brainer for me, but for a while there, I was criticized as being the Vice President "for torture." We don't torture. [Ed.-Yes, you do.] That's not what we're involved in. [Ed.-You have repeatedly ordered torture-sessions.] We live up to our obligations in international treaties [Ed.-Yet, you really don't.] that we're party to and so forth. But the fact is, you can have a fairly robust interrogation program without torture, and we need to be able to do that. And thanks to the leadership of the President now, and the action of the Congress, we have that authority, and we are able to continue to program. (

But you have advocated torture several-times, Mr. Co-President. Tony Snow's head might just explode over this one, you just advocated torture in the offending-excerpt. I know, you just let your paid-shill say it for you, then you gave a statement that could give you a marginal-out. It's call bait-and-switch, from baseball--the primary neocon approach. We're not supposed to know he's really your employee on-the-take, and that the reaction isn't the one you wanted. Now the gaggle in your echo-chamber are going to try to put Humpty together again, but it will achieve the same-results. It's a no-brainer.
