Raed in the Middle has a nice sarcastic post on all the good news coming in from Iraq these days. To take just one snippet:
Little bush announced today that "we don't torture", so I realize that all the lies and exaggerations about Abu-Ghreib and Guantanamo were mere hoaxes. This was making me feel bad in the last couple of years; so it makes me feel happy to know what really is going on now. But just for the sake of double-checking, when he said "we" that didn't mean "Laura and I", right?
I'm more and more convinced that no one cares any more. When the American sheeple have become so wonderfully loyal and patriotic that news of torture or a network of secret American prisons fails to elicit a response, we've really entered rightwing la-la land where spoiled and corrupt plutocrats are really rough-n-tough cowboys on horses, and where truth is nothing more than a list of talking points.
