It's Only A No Brainer If You Have No Brain

In what can only be described as baffling, the White House announced today that comments made by Vice President Dick Cheney, were not an endorsement of torture. The story was reported in the Associated Press this morning.

During an interview on WDAY in Fargo, N.D., Cheney was asked if "a dunk in water is a no-brainer if it can save lives." The Vice President responded, "Well, it's a no-brainer for me but for a while there I was criticized as being the vice president for torture. We don't torture. That's not what we're involved in."


White House Press Secretary, Tony Snow has claimed that the question was loosely worded and that Cheney did not take it to refer to the practise of water boarding, where a prisoner is dunked underwater and led to believe that he is about to be drowned.

So if that's the case, what interrogation technique DID the Vice President think he was responding to?

Do we have pool parties with our captives and playfully push their heads underwater, all the while laughing and splashing around? Given the Abu Ghraib photos, undoubtedly everyone is skinny dipping!

Maybe we bob for apples with them. It is almost Halloween after all.

Or perhaps everyone gets a super soaker and runs around dousing each other until they collapse on the floor from laughter.

Then again, there is the remote possibility that the Vice President, Tony Snow and our esteemed President are all liars

Hmm…Once again, it seems that our horrendous administration has flaunted their true colours. They tried to do it on a rinky dink station in Fargo, where they thought no one would be listening, but lo and behold, the national media was awake.

It almost goes without saying that the United States has never had a more morally bankrupt President and Vice President. With a bit of luck this latest gaffe will be a piece of kindling to help fuel their future impeachment trial.
