Here it is, if you can stand to read it: the report showed how the Bushistas, PNAC types, and “Republicans” in general shat themselves in terror after 9/11, resulting in idiot wars of choice and manifold panic-driven decisions, including the ones that involved torture.

Cowards they are, as has frequently been written on this very blog. But the Torture Report gives a horrifying view into the consequences of that cowardice, that fear, that wimpiness-concealed-by-bravado that characterizes modern Repubs. In their panic-stricken, fear-blinded, gutless, craven states of “mind”, the Bush/Cheney regime lashed out in a manner that was far beyond normal evil:
* People were tortured.
* People were tortured to death.
* The torture was completely f***ing useless, and in fact caused a lot of damage.
* Innocent people were dragooned and tortured.
* “Republicans” proposed, created and implemented these programs.
* “Republicans” STILL think we should be torturing people.

Since then, the GOP has continued to show its yellow bellies on repeated occasion: by making the Prexy keep Gitmo open (said Gitmo being full of tortured people); by not allowing the tortured people to have fair trials; and by trying to cover the whole sickening mess up, even after the world already knows what we did. Cowards, poltroons, pusillanimous dastards, faint-hearted, lily-livered scaredy-cats: that, friends, is what the GOP is composed of.

And the fact that the majority of American voters recently opted to bring in even more GOP “representatives” means that those voters are, what, themselves, exactly? Ponder that one, peeps.

In a few short days, various “Republicans” have blatantly shat upon the Constitution and the rule of law. A few of the many examples:

Sarah “thank God she isn’t in office” Palin announced that she would violate American and International law by torturing terrorists:

“Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we’d baptize terrorists.”

The GOP government of North Carolina informed landowners that they would make it legal for driller to violate their rights and frack under their property whether the property owner approves it or not.

A gun nut terrorized a bunch of kids and their families by showing them his weapon: the cops said that his 2nd Amendment rights trumped the rights of women and children to be safe in a public park. That is true, because “Republican” lawmakers made it possible to be a terrorist and get away with it.

Add in Craven Cliven Bundy, criminal Michael Grimm, and Arkansas’s illegal voter suppression scams, and you get the picture. Then you realize that there are hundreds of GOP illegal and unconstitutional actions every week, and you have to wonder why anyone would support such a despicable and scummy group of crooks.
