    It's almost satisfying watching the Republicans attack a war hero like Collin Powell in the name of somebody who used an ass pimple as a reason for not serving their country. The best part about it is that in doing so Collin Powell still comes out on top. People will see him as somebody who puts country before party. While Republicans put party before country. Oh gosh what a PR nightmare this is turning into for Republicans. I wonder what 3 word slogan they'll come up with to spin this thing.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

People were passing around the report of that one dude (I forget who) talking about his SERE training and the waterboarding which went on there. That convinced me that waterboarding is torture, 100%. It's a little odd saying that Jesse Ventura is right, but on this case he is.
    Sean Hannity already did.... Oh, wait. No he didn't. He offered to be waterboarded for charity, then chickened out. LOL.

But as it relates to the Republicans, because that was the subject of this thread, they have abandoned their honor and resolve and in doing so have become useless. Two big government parties is not good, we have to have at least one small government party. I thought someone as a self-confessed "conservative" would know that. I find it funny that many which are "conservative" on this place aren't so much conservative as the are partisan. They attached to a party and will endorse that party even if the actions of that party are counter to their supposed political philosophy. Hacks and nothing more. There's nothing small government about the Republican party, so it can go and die. We need at least one strong small government party, the Republicans abandoned that, so they get replaced with someone with the balls, the spine, and the resolve to get the job done.

    The GOP is a pathetic shell of its former self, scrape it at start anew.

    "I don't have a lot of respect for Dick Cheney," Ventura said. "Here's a guy who got five deferments from the Vietnam War. Clearly, he's a coward.
