Not for him, not unless you have to


Sorry for the inactivity as late. I'm back with this from CNN.

The 2008 race for the White House intensified Thursday as one of the big name Republican players, Sen. John McCain, threw himself into the fray.

Forgive me for not leaping for joy, but I like the fact that coercive interrogation saves lives and thwarts attacks. None of which, when closely examined, has any meaning when compared to his Vietnam POW stint, before you bring that up.

Registered Republicans surveyed in an October CNN poll about their 2008 presidential preferences put Giuliani and McCain at the top of the heap, well ahead of other possible contenders.

That's because nobody else has any name recognition, not because they are the more moderate/socially liberal candidates, as CNN would have you believe.

He angered conservative opponents of immigration by co-authoring a bill with Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts that would allow illegal immigrants to become guest workers. The idea is for illegal immigrants to work their way toward citizenship.

You sign anything with Ted Kennedy, and you are on my shitlist. Here's hoping we have a slate of conservative candidates that have bigger balls than McCain and further to the right than Giuliani. I oppose McCain's candidacy, and it remains to be seen if Rudy can court my vote.

If you have some time, i wouldnt mind seeing a written description of your opinion on what forms of torture should be accepted, and where the line falls that seperates "coercive" from "inhumane".

Again, dont interpret this as a challenge to your viewpoint. But rather a simple expression of intrest in an elaboration of your perspective, as I'd like to offer my two cents in return once I know exactly where you stand.

Feel free to challenge my viewpoint as often as you like.

As to your question, i'm curently drafting a post to deal with my view of torture in detail.
