    that the Cheney's would not come out and openly support torture. At first, they did not. They let Yoo do their torture talk for them. But slowly but surely Cheney came out in support of torture. Along with others. Until it becamse commonplace at my work to hear redneck goobers supporting torture of scary terrorists.

    This was a good thing. I respected Cheney for coming out. Because it allowed Americans the opportunity to debate. And we're still having this debate. Maybe in 50 or 100 years Americans will draw a conclusive opinion about torture, and other things.

    Maybe when Obama admits that war in the mideast really isn't about scary terrorists with dirty bombs, but about energy and commerce we can start having that debate for 50 or 100 years.
