Into The Pot With Him
Iowa Congressman Calls Iraqi Prisoner Abuse 'hazing'
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Republican Rep. Steve King says the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. soldiers was little more than "hazing."Still taking marching orders from Rush Limbaugh, drug addict, I see. I thought they'd issued the faithful a new memo, but apparently not everyone's got it yet.
"If Tom Harkin and his Democrat allies want to continue to act like political cannibals and pitch partisan hooey to anyone who'll listen, then they're eating their own," King said.
I don't understand how these people can equate torture and hazing in the first place. Or even "abuse" and hazing. Doesn't anyone get it that those being hazed (i.e., if you're rushing a frat) actually want to be there, and in some sense are enjoying themselves, because they're gonna get into a cool frat? The Iraqis don't want to be in jail, for crying out loud. They aren't paying dues to get into this place. Nor are those being raped over there "asking for it," trust me. Gene Blanshan is running against this jerk in Iowa's 5th District. Let him know you love and appreciate him with cash.
Good evening, friends. You do not want to go down to my basement right now. It smells like all the sewers in town have extruded their hideous contents down there. Let's not talk about it right now.
Otherwise, I am so cold. It's 48 degrees out and I took the plastic down from my windows last week.
