Even mild mannered Garrison Keillor is calling for Impeachment
Wiretap surveillance of Americans without a warrant? Great. Go for it. How about turning over American ports to a country more closely tied to Sept. 11, 2001, than Saddam Hussein was? Fine by me. No problem. And what about the war in Iraq? Hey, you're doing a heck of a job. No need to tweak a thing. And your blue button-down shirt--it's you.
But torture is something else. Most people agree with this, and in a democracy that puts the torturers in a delicate position. They must make sure to destroy their e-mails and have subordinates who will take the fall. Because it is impossible to keep torture secret. It goes against the American grain and it eats at the conscience of even the most disciplined, and in the end the truth will come out. It is comingout now.
I am reminded of the story of the preacher, citing a long list of crimes and perversions that had become commonplace in his parrish, but cites one as just over the top. Well Mr Keillor they are all over the top, if they have the bit in their mouth, torture may end up the least of it, not because it is not soul killing, but because there is so much worse they could go and perhaps have when folk are so dishonorable nearly anything can be believed.
It looks more and more like the law is toast.
