It was quite a juxtaposition this weekend. If Saturday was for remembering the Kennedys, Sunday was for dealing with the Cheneys. Camelot vs. Torture-a-lot.
Meanwhile, Liz Cheney, born in time to keep Dick out of Vietnam was on ABC working to keep Dick out of jail. Truly, the gift of a child that keeps on giving…at least to Daddy. With Liz’s appearance, as Scarecrow mentioned for ABC it came down not to a means to an end, but rather just for the means themselves.
But at least CBS had John McCain on to say that Cheney is wrong and torture is wrong, but that torturing people should not result in any consequences for anyone actually torturing someone.
So in summary, we said goodbye to Ted Kennedy one day and the next we were deciding how much we as a nation can torture people. And even more disturbing were the proposed answers.
Nobody said "NO". Rather the responses were: "Yes"; "Oh Yes!"; and "Oh well".
USA! USA! USA!
