Graham and the GOP Point of No Return
"The reason these techniques have survived for thousands of years is that they work."
--Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), at today's hearings on torture
Murder has survived because it's a great way to make people die, but you're not telling me that Graham thinks that something surviving a long time, in and of itself, makes it right.
Oh wait, I forgot about South Carolina's history with the Confederate flag. And I'm from there, I know better. Never mind. I shouldn't expect sense or shame from a SC Republican.
But we couldn't have it more obvious: they are defending a crime. They're not saying they didn't do it, because they can't. They're trying to nullify it as a crime despite all laws, treaties, and human reason and history. They even think that if they implicate Democrats as complicit, this makes it not a crime. Anything to not have to accept responsibility.
They're criminals, not leaders. They've made it clear. And I wonder how many times they can dare the rest of us to punish them before we do. I wonder how any of the way they're talking will help them later in court, from which no spin or Fox News can save them.
