Abu Ghraib. I just don’t care. Or better said, I just don’t care to the extent equal to the fervor being exhibited by Democrats and other anti-Administration mouthpieces. When I viewed the photos I thought they reflected a sexual perversion on the parts of the soldiers more so than that which I usually consider torture, such as cutting off someone’s head. I just can’t find a swell of outrage over psychological humiliation. Maybe it has something to do with terrorists continuing to kill Coalition soldiers. Maybe not.
If I did, I am sure I’d be able to wield the word “torture” with all the fury visceral disgust and hate can fuel. Unlike the Democrats and anti-Bush mouthpieces, I can’t do it. I don’t even want to couch my reaction in the ever-face saving platitudes about how bad the soldiers’ behavior was and how we have to punish them. Blah, blah, blah. (I will say that I wouldn’t be surprised to see those individuals, in civilian clothes, show-up on Taxi Cab Confessions or some other cable outlet for the sexually perver…off-beat.)

And if I could be inured any further by the effluviations of the Democrats and anti-Bush mouthpieces, it would have occurred this morning when The New York Times (I know. Redundant. I already mentioned “anti-Bush mouthpieces”.) ran an above-the-fold front page article declaring that we have used “harsh” methods to interrogate captured senior members of Al Qaeda. I’m having one of those Twilight Zone moments when I’m screaming and no one can hears me.

“Harsh” treatment of Al Qaeda???? What the Hell is wrong with the Left? Do they so lust for power again that they will side with anyone? Even those avowed to killing us? (And that includes the Left, the morons!)

Or are they in a Viagra-induced whirlwind over the re-living of their glory years as anti-Vietnam, pro-Communist protestors and agitprops? Are there other reasons for the equating of homosexual (not that there is anything wrong with that) humiliation with physical torture?

Can we have a discussion regarding what the Left thinks we should be doing? Or is this just like the solutions to how high taxes should be or how we deal with the pan-Arab terrorists in Iraq? Potshots from the Peanut Gallery!

Is there any questioning why I care more about the Coopers and the Cohens in The O.C. than I do about some homo-erotic, sado-masochist “torture” photos?
