We don't torture people, but you better not keep us from torturing people, because we do.
--------------------------------------------
GOP Hypocrite of the Week.

Our apologies if you just ate lunch, but sometimes we feel like a dog that can't keep from returning to its vomit.

Oh, we could have picked the interminably creepy James Dobson as our GOP Hypocrite of the Week, or the White House's "Bad Will" Ambassador Karen Hughes, or the irredeemably disingenuous White House Iraq Working Group honorary member, Judith Miller.

But like that mutt, we keep returning to the top dog hypocrite: George W. Bush.

Now, here is a guy who kept saying that the White House didn't condone torture and that any abuse of Muslim prisoners that occurred was do to a "few bad apples."

There were just a few things wrong with this PR spin. For one thing, it was a lie. There's even the proof in the form of a memo by then White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales laying out the legal justifications for torture. Two, despite confirmation that senior Pentagon and White House officials were aware of torture, they were virtually all promoted -- while the low level stiffs took the rap. Hey, Gonzales got to be America's Attorney General.

Then, last week the normally Stepford Republicans in the senate revolted and passed a bill that included a ban on torture. Surprisingly, there were only nine pro-torture Republican votes! Hmmm, is that progress or what?

And what did Bush threaten to do? Why, to veto the entire bill because it prohibited the kind of torture that George claimed the administration didn't engage in.

Okay, so if we understand Bush's policy, it's something like this: we don't torture people, but you better not keep us from torturing people, because we do.

Whoa! That's some jaw-dropping hypocrisy. Bush did have a macabre joy in setting the record for executing people when he was Governor of Texas, so you can kind of understand why torture would hold a special spot in his heart.

But if torture is your official policy as a president, then stand up like a man and admit it. Otherwise, you're just the BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week, yet again.

Remember our motto at BuzzFlash.com: So many Republican hypocrites, so little time.

Catch up with you soon.
