I'm pretty sure if Jesus was alive today he would roundly condemn waterboarding. Not George W. Bush. No, the arch-fiend, the great hypocrite of our time, has vowed to veto a bill that would ban waterboarding as an interrogation technique.
Look, I know that all sorts of terrible things happen to detainees, and I know that a ban of waterboarding won't change that. What kills me is Bush's blatant contempt for morality and the general passivity with which we treat it. For almost eight years he has flaunted his disregard for human life. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are dead, and still he occupies the highest office in the land.
To the 112,500,720 people who ever voted for Bush in a presidential election: how can you sleep?
