If Stage 4 is reached it is an indication that you are dealing with spoiled but normal kids who just are stupid. But if not- then you are dealing with evil shitty brats who happened to be in power or in service of the power in our country until recently and now are caught in the torture scandal. And then you watch all the stages from 1 to 3 in the grotesque sequence of adult howling. It is like a TV with three different screens:
Screen #1 is filled with Bush, Cheney, Rove and company.
We don’t torture (that’s Bush not long ago). It wasn’t torture at all: if I can stay on my feet for a day, so can them (the victims- MS). Ok, we tortured them but it was necessary. Some people could get carried away but we always wanted to correct things. We prevented bigger disasters. We protected American lives (that’s the most malicious- they try to make us all accomplices- MS). Let Obama publish all the papers- we will see who really was involved and also will see how good it was to do it.
Screen #2 is occupied by the talking heads. Here we find such characters as Chris Mathews, Joe (the Moron) Scarborough, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Admiral Blair, numerous columnists, etc.
That torture thing.. Let’s debate. Let’s make a poll. Polls say American people prefer torture in some circumstances. Who are we to state otherwise? FDR interned the Japanese- Americans, Woodrow Wilson passed a Sedition Act, Abraham Lincoln abandoned the Habeas Corpus for a while. Let’s denounce them all now. We have an economic crisis and are surrounded by enemies. Who cares about those terrorists? It was no big deal: our soldiers go through the similar ordeals in the boot camps. It is all that push from the left. Leftists, they do not care for our security. If Obama starts the prosecutions the professionals (? MS) will never be able to fight the terrorists. I can be waterboarded for fun (Hannity). It all came from the Chinese: we do not do such things in America.
Screen #3 is occupied by apologists. Those are the ones whom we only get when adults screw up; children usually do not enjoy the support of the adults.
