Rightwingsparkle's Personal Torture

"It's kind of like watering your houseplants."

Yeah, I know that talking about torture is so last week, since today every wingnut's got their panties in a bunch over Arlen Specter's pseudo-defection. But I've actually been working at a job that pays me money, so I'm a little behind on my unpaid scorning and ridiculing.

What're you gonna do - torture me? I've got some catching up to do, so let's get to it.

Anywhoozle, among Rightwingsparkle's many recent gems (if by 'gems' we mean the little peanut chunks and tomato skins seen floating on the toilet's surface after a good blast of diarrhea) is this, which I guess counts, for her, as some sort of moral quandry:
Bush had a choice. Prevent more dead Americans or skate the line of torture. You are telling me you wouldn't have done the same?

Was it wrong? Was it unconstitutional? We can argue that point. We can say it was or wasn't and move on. But you cannot prosecute people for doing what they thought was right at the time.

I can't recall ever seeing one of her little ditties generate as many comments as this. There's simply too much crazy in that thread for me to even begin sorting through and highlighting, but this one, by a very confused young man, sums up the crazy wingnut view perfectly:
GravatarWhy should we not do it anymore? It obviously works.
Bonus: In 1983, the Justice Department under Ronald Reagan, Patron Saint of Deluded Wingnuts, successfully prosecuted a Texas sheriff and his deputies, for torturing prisoners with water.
(two witnesses testified that they) saw the former San Jacinto County Sheriff, James Parker, direct his deputies to coerce confessions from two burglary suspects by draping a towel over each man's face and pouring water over it until the men gagged.

Mr. Parker, 47, and his former deputies, Carl Lee, 63, Floyd Allen Baker, 40, and John Glover, 65, are accused in Federal court of violating the civil rights of at least six prisoners.

Federal prosecutors secured a 10-year sentence against the sheriff and four years in prison for the deputies. link another link

Wingnuts Killing Cops

When the leader of the republican party says "shoot," you shoot.

The wingnuts were strangely silent about the Pittsburgh cop-killer.

I gave it a few days, then wandered over to the usual suspects. It didn't take long to come across this bit of idiocy. Here's what Buggs Bunny's Evil Twin has to say about the person he believes was the cop-killer's main influence:
He is so far out that he falls into that rare but true category. Of being so far out that he is in bed with those on the far out left. They are but two peas in a pod.

So, instead of considering the notion that wingnuts can be influenced and provoked by daily spew of folks like Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, O'Reilley, and others, our clueless friend simply twists himself into a pretzel and points his finger in the opposite direction.

Dude. You wanna know who the cop killers are? Listen to the garbage on talk radio and cable TV. Turn a critical eye to the wingnut sites you read every day.


All hail, Dark Lord Kos!

Hey, you're a normal guy, right? And you have FOX News on your cable, right? You might not watch it, but it's not like you went out and subscribed specially to this nutty, fringe channel, right? So it must be "normal" stuff on there. Because it's just regular, basic cable. They all wear suits and sit at desks. So it's not nutter stuff. If it was, they'd be wearing camouflage or something, right? And if it was really weird, a normal guy like you wouldn't have it on their basic cable, right? They have... rules about stuff like that. Somewhere. Don't they? They wouldn't just put crazy-ass bullshit on regular basic cable, right? Where kids and nutbars could see it?

All hail, David Waldman, minion of our Dark Lord, Kos.
