86. Its necessary to split hairs here
Edited on Thu Sep-28-06 11:54 PM by Moochy
Why I didnt call you "pro-torture"?
Calling folks who voted yes for torture, pro torture seems obvious to me.

I'll call anyone who voted for this bill pro-torture.
Redefining torture and essentially issueing a "signing statement" on the Geneva Convention is bullshit. But we agree right? :shrug:

Shifting definitions doesnt make it right or legal. It means that those who voted yes, are PRO-TORTURE.
Pretty fucking simple, IMO. I respect your right to disagree, and cheer for your candidate's strategy.

However, as disgusted as I am by the lack of solidarity amongst dems on this issue
I *STILL* say vote for the (D) even the ones who voted yes.

Keep on demeaning this so-called "feigned" outrage as "Purity Police" ... Ad Hominem much?
