How things change

Great read from Eric Martin (of the blog Obsidian Wings) who compiles a series of laughable quotes from leading Republican "intellectuals" immediately after the Abu Ghraib scandal broke.
"Obviously, it was a shameful moment when we saw on our TV screens that soldiers took it upon themselves to humiliate Iraqi prisoners -- because it doesn't reflect the nature of the American people, or the nature of the men and women in our uniform. And what the world will see is that we will handle this matter in a very transparent way, that there will be rule of law -- which is an important part of any democracy. And there will be transparency, which is a second important part of a democracy. And people who have done wrong will be held to account for the world to see. That will stand -- this process will stand in stark contrast to what would happen under a tyrant. You would never know about the abuses in the first place. And if you did know about the abuses, you certainly wouldn't see any process to correct them."
-George W. Bush

Ventura is dead on regarding torture, Dick Cheney, and Bush.

Love the skullet.
