Where's Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham when you need them..?
In regards to the torture treatment by American GIs, I'm sure they could simplify all this confusion and explain this to us in black and white terms which would make all our feelings of disgust and shame simply disappear...

"Hey! It's war! "Liberals" have this idea that we need to sit down with tea with those folks that are trying to kill us. They killed 3000 of our people so I'm not going to cry if a few Iraqis get humiliated...etc.."

Can't you just hear their compassionate conservative explanations?

3. Hmmmmm. Nope, nope, can't see it . . .
I can't imagine any situation, scenario, hideous turn of events or catastrophe of truly biblical proportions that would cause me to "need" Ann Coulter or Laura Ingraham. Just can't see it in any way, shape or form, sorry.

Not "need" as in the sense of deficiency....
But need as in the sense of validation of your theory that the right wingers are indeed insane... :)

Ingraham was attacking what Joe Biden said yesterday on cable
Biden said that we need to go as high up the chain of command that this takes us and Ingraham called him a drama queen. She scoffed at the idea of bulldozing the prison.

6. definitely
this is where Ann is truly at her best, defending ridiculously indefensible arguments with hyperbole.

You know she's on a roll when her Adam's apple nearly pops out.

I'm also still waiting for Pat Robertson and Falwell to blame Clenis for the homosexual-eroticism that has pervaded the military.

8. I keep hearing
snippets on AM radio (not really listening) that this "incident is less severe than what goes on in most 'US' college faternity hazings." I can't help but think that what might be most troubling to the rightwingnuts is the homo-erotic nature of the torture images and what that digs up in their repressed little gray minds.

9. They didn't get their talking points yet.
H. Boyden Croy tells Ann how to moosh a constitutional rationale and he's busy.

Laura hasn't been coaxed by Orrin Hatch because Hatch hasn't been coached by Allbaugh and Bartlett and Hatch can't keep it straight anyway, plus her direct deposit isn't showing up.

13. " They killed 3000 of our people ..."
"They killed 3000 of our people so I'm not going to cry if a few Iraqis get humiliated..."

When did the Iraqis do that?

Those Neo-Clones have it all mixed up. How many Iraqis were involved in the hijackings? Zero, zip, zilch, none. We've killed close to 10,000 Iraqis in the name of Liberating them. We have liberated them from their earthly existence. How many would have died if Saddam had remained in power? Are they any better off being liberated? The 10,000 dead have families who may wish to seek revenge against us. Does that make us any safer than when Saddam was in power?

We informed al jezera that showing captured prisoners on TV was against the Geneva convention, yet look at what we have done to prisoners. Why don't we have to play by the same rules?

I can't imagine how any of those Neo-dittos can say this is right, all they can do is accuse the "Libruls" of keeping a spotlight on it. I think it is just as much a surprise to the Libs as it is to the Cons.

15. Yea!

They need to be out there making fools of themselves, as usual.
Let's have Ann put a leash around Laura neck and see how it feels.
Then they can trade places.

That would be great!

17. I didn't know being stripped of my clothing, a bag put over my head,
and being piled on top of other naked men was all part of the "converting them to Christianity".

Oh, I see. The problem there is that the US soldiers didn't really "kill their leader". Major SNAFU there. I remember that one guy being really pissed because he didn't get to shoot it out with Saddam.

Wonder if he ever got to go to Fallujah?

18. Yeah,and her statement would be like two birds with one stone...
First,dip wad Murikans who just love all the violence and booms that go with war would totally agree about "they needed a good torturing".

Second,she would be claiming that imprisoned Iraqi's are responsible for 9/11 ONCE AGAIN.

Yeah beautiful....

21. I just asked this exact question here...
I think the RW think tanks are working on the spin now, figuring out how to turn it around on the liberals. This is a tricky one, it might take them a few days.
