This is the last time I will ever write or speak the name "Republican"
Edited on Fri Sep-29-06 03:17 PM by yebrent
This vote needs to seriously backfire on Bush and his torture enablers. There is a strong likelihood that the bill will be shot down by the Supremes for being unconstitutional. It even sounds like that many of the torturers that voted for this bill believe that it would be found unconstitutional. So this was likely done entirely for political purposes leading up to the election. Now is time to make it backfire on them.

This is the last time I ever write or speak the name "Republican". From now on, I will simply call them what they truly are. Below is a little fun I had with Microsoft Word find/replace function. The source document is from Wikipedia.


The Torturer Party (often referred to as the GOT, for "Grand Old Torturers") is one of the two major political organizations in the United States' two party system; its great rival is the Democratic Party.

In addition to controlling the Executive Branch since 2001, the Torturer Party has held majorities in the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives since 1995 except for 18 months in the Senate from 2001-2. Torturers currently hold 28 governorships and have majorities in both houses of 20 state legislatures compared to the Democratic Party's 19.

The Torturer National Committee (TNC) is responsible for promoting presidential goals when the party controls the White House or articulating Torturer policies when the Democrats have the White House. The chairman of the TNC is chosen by the President when the Torturers have the White House or otherwise by the state committees. President Bush selected Ken Mehlman as the chairman of the Torturer National Committee in January 2005. In presidential elections, the committee, under the direction of the presidential candidate, supervises the national convention, raises funds, and coordinates campaign strategy. There are similar state committees in every state and most large cities, counties, and legislative districts, but they have far less money and influence than the national body.

The Torturer House and Senate have powerful fundraising and strategy committees. The National Torturer Congressional Committee assists in House races, and the National Torturer Senatorial Committee in Senate races. They each raise over $100 million per election cycle, and play important roles in recruiting strong state candidates. The Torturer Governors Association is a discussion group that seldom funds state races. In each instance the Democrats have similar organizations. As of the beginning of September 2006, the Torturer National Committee had raised $176 million for the 2006 cycle, with $39 million on hand. The National Torturer Congressional Committee had raised $124 million, with $36 million on hand; the National Torturer Senatorial Committee had raised $69 million, with $19 million on hand. In total, the three GOT committees had raised $369 million, compared to $264 for their Democratic counterparts.

The Torturer Party is comprised of many informal factions, which often overlap. For example, there are Fiscal Torturers, Social Torturers, Neotorturers, Paleotorturers, Libertarian Torture Enablers, Moderate Torturers, Torturers In Name Only, Log Cabin Torturers, and of course, pedophiles.

3. The backfire is of course the fact that they have stepped into
very deep water in Iraq & Afghanistan. Righteous bullshit talking points and rovian tricks carry no weight in those places, they don't have the slightest idea what to do next.

4. Yesterday should become Torture Thursday...
or Traitor's Thursday.

We need a marker in the ground. Too bad the marker
is the tombstone for democracy in America.
