Torture's Back, So Liz Cheney Called Rand Paul A Terrorist Symp (UPDATED)
OK, I joined you, so when do I get to rule the Galaxy?
Yesterday, Senator Rand Paul had one of his occasional five minute bouts of sanity; he said he could not vote to confirm CIA Black Site Princess Gina Haspel as the agency's director, what with her balls-out enthusiasm for torture of the balls-out kind.
Well! Liz Cheney, who is a congresswoman now because FUCKING WYOMING OF COURSE SHE IS, wasn't about to have any of THAT:
Wow -- if you don't like torture, you are a terrorist sympathizer. Accept torture or you too are the enemy. That's almost as big a Cheney Torture Era nostalgia trip as a Marilyn Manson concert, except we doubt there's quite as many middle-aged people wondering how they ever thought he was hardcore.
So let's see how Rand Paul provided aid and comfort to terrorists when he went on Fox News yesterday and explained to Harris Faulkner why he just couldn't get behind the torture lady (relevant bit starts at 1:39):
.@RandPaul: "It almost seemed to be a little bit of glee in her voice that [Gina Haspel] actually enjoyed the torture, and I think that's not who we need to lead the @CIA... We should not reward somebody who actually participated in torture treatment." #OutnumberedOT pic.twitter.com/Qe6Xt2fO9T— Fox News (@FoxNews) March 14, 2018
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
