Ashcroft And Waterboarding....

Where to begin? I received an email when I woke up yesterday morning on this story, but just got to it now...These people are certifiable---of that--

Where to begin? I received an email when I woke up yesterday morning on this story, but just got to it now...These people are certifiable---of that--I am certain.

Ashcroft also responded to questions from the audience. The first question came from a woman who asked if Ashcroft would be willing to be subjected to waterboarding. "The things that I can survive, if it were necessary to do them to me, I would do," he said.

How fast can we raise the money and get on with it? Glenn Reynolds can join him-I wouldn't mind paying for it too as long as I could be there. Actually, I'm not interested in watching people being tortured. What is up with these psychos and violence? I still find it very odd that Ashcroft was a hero in the whole Gonzo/Card trip to the hospital over the NSA program, but is so utterly clueless on so many fronts. I think it comes down to being an authoritarian. The BushCo's tried to mess with him when he was terribly ill and he rose up to meet that challenge, but I wonder if he was in perfect health---would he have stood in the way at all? I sincerely doubt it.
