Joe and Imus have a laugh over torture
I have particularly appreciated your interrogation of some of the other Democratic elected officials. And I'm very comforted to know that your interrogation is not covered by Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions. Heh-heh-heh.
Yeah, we know how much you love ignoring habeas corpus Joe.
The Democratic vote in the Senate on Thursday against legislation governing the treatment of terrorism suspects showed that party leaders believe that President Bush’s power to wield national security as a political issue is seriously diminished.Funny Joe, real funny.
Democratic opponents of the legislation said their political position was driven by a substantive determination that the bill, which creates rules for interrogating and trying terrorism suspects, is fundamentally flawed and a dangerous departure from founding American principles.
"The only reason to worry about the politics of it is if you don't understand it and don't have the guts to stand up and defend your vote," said Senator Christopher J. Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut, who is considering a presidential race.
Over all, 32 Democrats voted against the measure while 12, including some of those in the most difficult re-election fights, backed it. Among the latter was Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, whose perceived support for Mr. Bush has brought him political trouble at home.
Hat tip to Joementum for catching Joe's joke.
