National Review Endorses Torture.
"To Senator McCain, congratulations. But he has not got this thing wrapped up by any stretch. It’s less than a year since he tried to push a disastrous immigration bill into law — one as manipulative as any pork-laden appropriations bill — with vigorous opposition from talk radio, conservative bloggers, think tanks, and the grassroots. I don’t see how such a man wins the Republican nomination. I’m second to none in praising him on his surge leadership. But on a whole host of issues — including water boarding, tax cuts, and the freedom of speech — he’s not one of us." (stress position added)This passage comes form The National Review online, the e-version of the right-wing rag. I read about this in a report over at The Nation and thought it really couldn't be true. But it is. One more piece of evidence that the right wing wackos are dangerous.
