    Chuck Schumer: Waterboy for a Waterboarding Adminstration

    Mukasey was approved by Senators Schumer and Feinstein, and the Senate Judiciary Committee in an 11-8 vote -- even though Mukasey refused to commit as to whether or not waterboarding is torture. Remember that DEMOCRATS make up the majority of that committee.

    Schumer and Feinstein are spineless and pathetic. Mukasey is the best we can do? Instead they should have said: Mr. President, if this is your best, your best won't do. And we'd rather leave the AG position vacant (or make you make a recess appointment) than put our seal of approval on this nonsense.

    The apologists cry that of course Mukasey could not go on the record and say that waterboarding is torture -- because that would mean Mukasey would be implicating members of this administration for their criminal conduct. Which is exactly why the Senate Judiciary Committee should not have relented. And that is why these Democrats/pussies have once again pissed away a golden opportunity to do the right thing and put this administration in a box (or a cell).

    Chuck Schumer, with your vote, you are now the waterboy of a waterboarding administration. You too, Diane Feinstein -- you are the watergirl, or maybe you can just mop up the floor of the torture chamber.

    I couldn't agree more. The Democrats are a disappointment in the extreme. Waterboarding is torture. They have approved a man who won't come out against torture. This war has to be stopped. Take a stand and cut off funds. Bring this current administration to justice for war crimes, crimes against humanity, corruption, bribery. The list is too long.

    These aren't esoteric concepts. This is why I'm voting against Establishment politicians, if I get the chance. If not...

    Chuck Schumer tried to save face: he had recommended the twerp to Bush and had assured Bush that he would be confirmed. Waterboarding is torture -- we need no additional law confirming it. Check out Frank Rich's column, The Coup at Home.

    Then they had this vote late quickly late at night -- The Senate doesn't move this quickly usually but they didn't want to allow time for people to gather forces to defeat Mukasey.

    I am outraged. I have called Schumer's office and given them an ear-full. I don't know how Schumer is going to regain his standing, how he can make up for such a fiasco. Read Frank Rich's column.

    More hugs!
