Ah, the GOP. They keep finding new ways to make themselves look like total assholes. During the Fox’s American Idol-style Debate the candidates crawled over each other to be the boldest defender of the country after being given a totally hypothetical plot that was clearly stolen verbatim from the TV show 24. Of course, they were basically advocating torture.
You know what? I think that’s great. The GOP is finally showing their true colors. At this rate, I won’t be surprised if they quickly go from being the Torture Party to the Put-Muslims-On-Pikes Party. Perhaps they’ll crucify them, like the Romans. Even the religious right wouldn’t see the irony.
