Relativity

Sometimes I just want to hide under my covers. In the last three days, one American leader, George Bush, has actually vetoed a law which would have prohibited the CIA — the American Intelligence Service — from drowning and otherwise torturing people. Autrement dit, he essentially said, “We can torture people if we want to.” And Republican Senator John McCain — who was tortured in Vietnam and who wants to succeed Bush — says it’s okay by him. Another American leader, New York governor Eliot Spitzer, has been told by by the State’s Republican leaders that he has 48 hours to get out of town — because he hired a prostitute. Otherwise he’ll be impeached.

Bush advocates torture, and no one’s impeaching him. Eliot Spitzer, who has done a lot of good chiefly in cracking down on Wall Street greed and malfeasance, is being hounded out of office because he hired a prostitute.

My country.
