The Truth Hurts

Which is why comedy is so good at pointing it out after all else has failed.
Joint Chiefs Send Rare Protest Letter to 'Wash Post' Over 'Reprehensible' Toles Cartoon: "The Toles cartoon shows a soldier, a quadriplegic, in a hospital, being visited by a Dr. Rumsfeld who is scribbling on a form. Rumsfeld says, 'I am listing your condition as battle hardened.' At the bottom a smaller figure of the doctor adds, 'I'm prescribing that you be stretched thin. We don't define that as torture.'"
And they don't. Send them back time after time. Don't worry about those nicks, dings and bruises. This makes them trained, they'll know how to avoid them next time. Wasn't that the theory in practice? Not quite working out the way they envisioned. Poor babies.

Awful lot of whining going on lately from the right. Did somebody steal their binky?
