McCain votes FOR torture..
Its a long strange trip evidently when your running for the office of President. Take John ‘Weathervane’ McCain. He was against torture..and suddenly, now that he is the Rethug choice for our next Commissar…he thinks torture is just fucking dandy!! He voted no on the bill to ban torture as a method of interrogation. From the NYT writeup:
Mr. McCain, a former prisoner of war, has consistently voiced opposition to waterboarding and other methods that critics say is a form torture. But the Republicans, confident of a White House veto, did not mount the challenge. Mr. McCain voted “no” on Wednesday afternoon
My take on his vote? The old fucker is in the throes of Alzheimer’s, ala Ronnie Rayguns. Its either that or he is a lying sack of sheep shit who will sell his soul for pretty much anything Presidential.
The picture below was taken during the Vietnam War. These gents were summarily court-martialed and kicked out of the Army for waterboarding this guy. Just wanted to send McCain a reminder of what he used to be against before he sold-out for a crack at being President. The last vestige of respect I had for McCain is now gone. He is a creepy old bag of bat guano that just turns my stomach now..like all the rest of the Rethugs in office.
