I'm very disappointed by the vote to geld the Geneva Convention. A shame all Republicans have been captured by the rovian ravings of the Bush administration.
So here's what I wrote in response to my recent thank-you letters to several senators:
Dear Senator [[McCain/Graham/Warner]]:
A few weeks back, I sent you a thank-you letter over your then stated support of treating detainees fairly.
Now, given your vote yesterday, you've demonstrated you're nothing but a politician, Geneva Convention be damned. I'm disappointed, but not at all surprised by your behavior.
I look forward to the day when people of principle are elected to public office in this country. Because they clearly aren't being elected now.
I don't believe the Constitution is quite dead yet, but parts of it have clearly been amputated. This by the man who said, just last fall that the "Constitution is just a goddamned piece of paper."
Toilet paper to many of them, apparently.
His administration has now done more damage to the Constitution than any other enemy, either foreign or domestic.
This is just plain sick.
