Torture, a gray area?
Just how off course have we gotten that politicians and news pundits are actually defending torture? Weren't we once the worlds beacon of light? On top of that there seems to be hesitation on the part of the current administration to prosecute the perpetrators. Turning a blind eye to a crime makes you culpable. Investigating and prosecuting might be messy and inconvenient but sometimes doing the right thing isn't easy.
Swine Flu is a Partisan issue
Congress woman Michelle 'CO2 is harmless' Bachman is insinuating President Obama may be to blame for the Swine Flu outbreak because he recently visited Mexico. She finds it an 'interesting coincidence' that the last U.S. outbreak of swine flu occurred under another Democrat President (Jimmy Carter). Actually, Republican Gerald Ford was President at the time. Bachman who believes Intelligent Design should be taught in schools manages to disprove that hypothesis every time she opens her mouth. (She's a Congresswoman, really! Shame on you Minnesota's 6th district!)
