    Armando will have lunch with Yoo.

    •  Torturing Yoo (4.00)
      would be on the menu.

      The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

      •  Now that you bring that up (4.00)
        it has honestly occurred to me that all those who advocate torture should have a try at it!  If they still believe in it after they've had a near-death experience due to near organ failure, then we talk more about that.

        If they do like it, I for one have a diagnosis!

        •  You assume they have organs! (none)
          Hell, I'd be content with hiring someone to angrily recite the Golden Rule at them 24/7.  Failing that, convince some retiring senator to introduce the Taking the High Road Act of 2006 as a stunt: We the People of the United States want to be a beacon of hope in the world, so we will not not not ever ever ever engage in actions that are just mean and despicable (especially ones that are not known to be particularly effective at getting usefulhonest outcomes).

          I want my American spirit, dream, and identity back from these people who are using it as a bumper-rag.

          You can never ask too many questions.

    •  The Constitution (4.00)
      (for what it's worth these days) forbids cruel and unusual punishments--even for Armando.  As usual with Constitutional Law we have to balance things: Your desire to be a fly on the wall vs. Armando's self control and likely deep annoyance vs. the possibility of the Manslaughter by verbal attack on Yoo.

        •  You'll have to get a (4.00)
          Warrant.  Hmmm, let's see what can we allege under tha law and have sufficient surrounding evidence and circumstances that a warrant would issue?  What would the affidavit to be presented to the magistrate say?  C'mon guys, you can do it!

      What do ya mean "hearing range at the next table"? I have a feeling you could hear the conversation while sitting in an parked car with the radio on. :)
