Republicans - Love that Torture

News reports are that all the Reps except McCain support torture - even more than Bush.

Perfect campaign material:

If you like torture vote Republican.

If you like freedom and dignity vote for Hillary.

[OK,in case you missed the memo:

Torture hurts American national security:

1.It is illegal under US law

2. It is against American values.

3. Tortured people will say whatever they think the torturer wants to hear to make the pain stop, so the information is false

4. The military may act on false information and waste time and lives

5. It gives our enemies license to torture our troops.]

Halloween Dem Debate

On the Dem debate from Philly last night, Hillary was clearly the front runner. She handled some softball challenges from Obama and Edwards pretty well.

Interesting that she was clearly the leader and the target - seemed to have the most air time by far. The others were a supporting cast.

If Obama was on the attack, it was hard to tell. Pre-debate buzz was that he had to come out swinging against Hillary. If he tried, he did not show much.

Dodd was good on energy, Richardson was good on diplomacy, Biden was good on Giulani - we need all these guys on the team in 2009.

What about Gore?

Back from the kids', physically anyway.

Had a vision/dream while away. Maybe you did too.

Here's the dream: Al Gore agrees to be Hillary's VP.

Helps Hillary get elected, gives Al official platform to promote cures for global warming.


But, just a dream so far.
