Pro-torture Ted

Senator Ted Stevens was not only one of the 9 members of the US Senate (Allard (R-CO), Bond (R-MO), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Cornyn (R-TX), Inhofe (R-OK), Roberts (R-KS), Sessions (R-AL), and Uncle Ted) who voted against Senator John McCain's anti-torture amendment, he actually had the gall to argue FOR the use of torture, although not on the Senate floor. (I heard him on NPR while I still wasn't quite awake. Horrible.) For this, he has rightly been compared with Adolph Eichman. He's entered into Barf City.

This is appalling. When are we gonna throw this man out of office?
