Last night on the O'Reilly Factor, Nixon worshipper Monica Crowley was on to discuss talk radio cannibalizing "John Edwards McCain." She is a McCain supporter but noted that as a conservative he is bad on numerous issues which she proceeded to list. One of those issues was anti-torture legislation. Which means that he's "bad" on it because he's for it, i.e. he's against the use of torture. It just struck me as disturbing how casually that phrase - "bad on anti-torture legislation" - rolled off of her tongue. Who would have thought that in this day and age we'd need to be debating why torture is not good.
What kind of upside down universe do these people inhabit?
