Since paT is too hungover to read...

...much less post, I figured I'd start our Tuesday morning out the right way.

So, here we have another batch of the 'way too much free time' crowd, once again 'demanding' that we shut down Gitmo. This time, however, we've replaced your usual whines about how 'inhumane' it is that we feed, clothe, medically treat, and pander to religously these terrorists, with today's news. Now, apparrently, Gloria Steinem is comparing the terrorists at Gitmo with the COLONISTS OF THE FIRST 13 COLONIES!!!

Seriously, people, you've GOT to be kidding me. Not only do we have Mr. Steinem claiming that we're treating the folks down at Club Git like the English treated those who left for America 300+ years ago, but we also have a swell quote here by one Rachel Meeropol. For those not in the know, Ms. Meeropol is the granddaughter of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. The same Julius and Ethel Rosenberg who were executed in 1953 for spying for the Russians.

Ms. Meeropol claims that "The Bush administration "has claimed the power to kidnap men anywhere in the world and hold them, interrogate them, detain them without any process of law."

Once again guys, these people are getting face time in the name of the Democratic party. The National Organization of Women is pretty heavily anti-Bush and anti-Republican. I'd wager that Ms. Meeropol voted Democrat too. Start fixing your own house before you tell me what's wrong with mine.

While the quote wasn't as ludicris as I originally thought it might reading your post, and while I do think detaining without charges is a crappy practice, I submit the following:

Gloria Steinem must love Guantanamo Bay.

Say what?
Well, either she's retarded and doesn't realize this or she's not and she does: for half of the American population, Gloria Steinem's name alone negates whatever cause she sponsors. Her best case senario is she reinforces existing prejudices and beliefs on the left; her worst case senario is she creates opposite prejudices and beliefs in the right and the middle.

Stop preaching to the choir, woman. Stop preaching.
