And the president asked Elie Wiesel - Nobel Peace Prize winner, Holocaust survivor - should he remove Saddam. Wiesel said yes, and then he added, "If only the world had listened to Winston Churchill in 1938 or 1939, World War II and the Holocaust could have been avoided. And I thought to myself, if the world had listened to Churchill in '38, people probably would've said "you exaggerated the threat of Hitler. You know, who says there was a World War coming?" We'll never know what we averted by getting rid of Saddam and how many lives were saved as a result of removing the threat of Saddam Hussein.-ari fleisher on morning joe when the means prove fantastically bad, push up the fantasy for your ends. so simple

Bullwinkle: You just leave it to my pal Rock. He's the brains of the outfit. General: And what does that make you? Bullwinkle: What else? The executive.

1st question: why is the President watching sen. Reid blurble and sputter and not yet come to his aid, after all didn't he start this boulder down the hill, shouldn't he be helping here? 2nd question: isn't it going to be difficult to keep the terrorists/detainees safe from our maximum security prisoners, more so than us from them?

The SUV argument is absurd in any case - demand for them plunged in the era of 4 dollar a gallon gasoline, and folks are wary of gas guzzlers when they know that high prices could return at any time. one would think so, and yet just last fall prior to all the bankruptcy talk, we saw a surge in truck and SUV sales (as soon as prices fell) and still today, despite the many market difficulties in the whole market, SUVs and trucks are not the "untouchables" they were at the height of gas prices.

"Sexual abuse is "virtually a fact of life" for female prisoners in the United States, many of whom are sold by prison guards as sex slaves to male inmates, according to a new report from Amnesty International." how is this possible? do inmates have the cash needed to buy a guard's dignity and potential freedom? aren't prisons separated by gender? this seems unlikely to me.

an undeserved and generous reading of cheney's remarks places him in the no torture crowd as well. his tortured definition varies from mine. however, i am curious, what would you allow? and are you willing to sacrifice every other issue so important to you and be punished by the electorate for what is seen by voters as line drawing and definitions for the benefit of the the super others. would you sleep deprive a man in order to stop another bush election?

nicely done video btw, fun and slick, i agree will EL, the point will be missed by some, heck, i just met a masters of ed student that believes colbert is merely a self-effacing committed conservative, so convinced was she, that i spent a few seconds considering the power confirmation bias has on me and then swatted that fly dead.

every couple of months my local news tv station covers an angry and frightened reaction to a recent move in of a listed sex offender. the town folk are interviewed and they are deeply concerned for safety of all. this story has been on wash, rinse and repeat for a few years now. i waiting for the question "well, where should they live?" this never gets asked, it never gets asked because this story is about gut reactions, and angry neighbors, not what to do, what to do.
