McCain and Biden Agree: expose, prosecute US forces who “tortured” prisoners

It took me a minute to figure out that they were talking about our guys interrogating their guys but by golly, they are. After first agreeing that we should be looking for “lone wolf” terrorists, the new Obama buzzline for “not Islamic, that’s for sure, because you know, Al Qaeda’s like, gone, man”, the boys turn to weightier matters:

McCain followed up by saying that those who tortured U.S. prisoners, in violation of the Geneva convention, should be exposed and be held responsible to prevent repeated abuses.

Biden agreed with the man once held as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War. He said the internal debate in Congress and at the White House is how things got to that point, but it’s not yet resolved.

They aren’t speaking of Al Qaeda sawing off Daniel Pearl’s head, they want to prosecute the men who went after the executioners.

We’re in the best of hands.

What’s next for Bob Horton, drain the Byram pool?

Say goodnight

Say goodnight

My absolute favorite liberal and friend Bob Horton says it’s time to throw in the towel on the GHS Music Palace. Bob cites just a few of the many good reasons to delay tuba practice but any good reason will do: if the palace proponents have lost Horton, the fat lady has sung.

Oh, the humanity!

It will never be new again!

It will never be new again!

Reader PC sends along this heart rending story: 18-year old’s new Mercedes suffers 3″ scratch while parked at New Canaan High School. Police have dropped everything to investigate.

PC does see a bright side to this tale of woe: parents worried about random acts of terrorism in New Canaan may now look to Greenwich for a safe place to park their children’s Mercedes.

Amateur Hour in the White House

Bwarrwy sorry

When the Golfer in Chief threatened Syria last August that the use of chemical weapons would be “a game changer” that “would cross the red line”, the Syrians weren’t the only ones to ask, “or else what?”. Assad then went ahead and gassed civilians and the world looked to Washington to see what it would do.

Yesterday, the leader of the free world punted. After weeks of ignoring irrefutable proof that chemicals had been employed, Obama was forced to admit it publicly and warned that, any further use of chemicals, if used in a “systemic fashion” would really, really tick us off. “The occasional bomb, well okay, everyone gets hot under the collar now and then and can be excused for spraying some sarin across the landscape, but if Syria does it on a regular basis, then boy, will there be consequences!”

No one I know wants to see us get tangled in Syria (well John McCain does, but he’s just upset that the Syrians aren’t practicing safe gun control), but even a Kenyan parent knows that you don’t threaten children or rulers of other countries with consequences you can’t deliver. Obama did just that back in August, and now he, and we, look like the impotent fools we are. The Iranians must be trembling in their tents when they think of Joe Biden’s threat last month that just like Syria, they too were “nearing the redline.”  Oh, Allah spare us from the wrath of Barry!

There’s no disagreeing with our petty little ruler’s observation that “elections have consequences”. It just seems so unfair that we all should suffer for the wrongs of the 52%.

Yes, it’s come to this

OMG! Run away!

OMG! Run away, Carolyn!

UConn Fluke protests new Husky mascot because it frightens her and thus promotes rape.

The new logo for the University of Connecticut’s sports teams is a terrifying husky dog that calls to mind images of sexual assault, says one student.

The new logo was unveiled last week, receiving mixed-to-negative reviews from UConn fans who preferred the older, cuter husky dog.

But one student went much further, criticizing the new, meaner logo for being a pro-rape symbol.

In an open letter to UC President Susan Herbst, self-described feminist student Carolyn Luby wrote that the redesigned team logo will intimidate women and empower rape culture.

Luby wrote, “What terrifies me about the admiration of such traits is that I know what it feels like to have a real life Husky look straight through you and to feel powerless, and to wonder if even the administration cannot ‘mess with them.’ And I know I am not alone.”

The logo and the teams it represents are menacing to women, she wrote.

The next time you hear of a proposal to cut UCONN funding, and the politicians rise as one to denounce the idea, describing higher education as critical to the future of this state, think of Miss Luby; it is she, not some dumb dog, who is the true face of modern higher education.
