An associate editor and columnist for the Washington Post says that until George W. Bush and others in his administration endure the "harsh" treatment to which terrorism suspects are subjected, then Bush "will be remembered as the president who tried to justify torture."

Saying his proposal is a "serious" alternative to Jonathan Swift's "modest proposal," the Post's Eugene Robinson says Bush should endure the same detainee treatment he authorized, which "international conventions deem torture."

Well, for once I agree with Mr. Robinson. Maybe he's not quite the total fool I thought he was. Though definitely an eye-for-an-eye mentality, self-righteous and vengeful, a multitude of psychological problems yet to be revealed, confused, etc.

:P

Understood, Glass Race. I was just organizing a bit--putting things in their place.

Have you ever heard a gossip tell you s/he hates it when people gossip? Happens all the time. We don't see ourselves.

But then, it was not right for me to judge either...

It's amazing how the Bush Admin comes to mind when we see, hear, or think of adjectives that might be used to describe people who seem to be fools or just plain old awful.
