Chimpy goes bananas:

W. is getting all Chimpy on us again. Yesterday, he let loose on Colin Powell for his "flawed logic" in the letter he wrote on Thursday saying that W.'s plan to gut Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions would lead the world to "doubt the moral basis" for the war on terror and "put our troops at risk." W. said, "If there's any comparison between the compassion and decency of the American people and the terrorist tactics of extremists, it's flawed logic." Of course, compassion and decency is all about jamming a wet cloth down someone's throat until they think they're drowning. Mom, apple pie and electric shocks; it's all right there in the constitution.

W. clearly has some fuzzy logic issues of his own, because at the same time he was saying that if North Korea and Iran used the same rules he was proposing "the world would be better." So, the world would be better off if the North Koreans tortured one of our soldiers and put him to death based on secret evidence and torture? What?

The best part about W.'s little tirade was his threat to stop torturing terrorist suspects. Peter Baker writes that Chimpy "repeated 11 times in the course of an hour that intelligence officials would not 'go forward' with their interrogation program, unless Congress doesn't obey his order to "clarify" the Geneva Conventions. Chimpy says, "Congress has got a decision to make: Do you want the program to go forward or not? I strongly recommend that this program go forward in order for us to be able to protect America."

And by "strongly recommend," he means McCain might be reliving the Henoi Hitlon years again real soon if he doesn't knuckle under.
