  •  The Democrats did decide torture was acceptable (none)
    They're accepting it right now.  

    This particular "unacceptable policy", a.k.a. war crimes, should draw a response, first of impeachment, then imprisonment, of the Republican executives responsible for the policy.  

    But I guess impeachment and inditement are for dodgy land deals and extra-marital affairs, not for the kidnapping, imprisonment, starvation, torture, rape, sodomy, and murder of innocent men, women, and children.  

    Seriously, where is the outrage, and what are we going to tell the children?  I really want to know.  

    •  And there's no end in sight... (none)
      With two pro-war millionaires to choose from this November.

      People are terrible. They can bear anything.

    •  Impeachment (3.50)
      isn't up to the Democrats; it's up to the Republican majority. Which is why we had impeachment when we didn't need it, with Clinton, and don't have it now when we do.  

      And yes, if the Republicans had any decency they would be cooperating with the Dems to bring articles of impeachment.  But can enough of them see past their own lockstep loyalty and short-term political expediency to do the right thing?  I honestly don't know.
