"My fellow Americans, I am not a crook."

"We do not torture", said our Fearless Leader today in a press conference. This is, of course, in the same breath that he defended exempting the CIA from proposed "anti-torture" legislation. I don't care if the CIA's going to beat the tar out of somebody to find the information they need. That's fine by me; sometimes harsh language just isn't effective. But at least be up front and honest about it. This Orwellian double-speak is just getting tiring.

In unrelated news (but related because I heard it on the radio at the same time: It's pronounced NEW-CLEAR. Nuclear. Not nukular. For the love of Christ get it right already.
