Punk Kids

You know you are bad at your job when you get shown up by a bunch of high school kids. Of course, these aren’t any old run of the mill teenagers saying, “BUSH SUX LOL!!!11!” No, we’re talking presidential scholars, the best and the brightest.

And they made it very clear that they really didn’t want to enter as adults into a country that tortures people:

“We do not want America to represent torture. We urge you to do all in your power to stop violations of the human rights of detainees, to cease illegal renditions, and to apply the Geneva Convention to all detainees, including those designated enemy combatants,” the letter said.

To which, of course, Bush replied that we don’t do torture. This isn’t the truth, of course, the US does torture, or if it doesn’t, it must have stopped a very short time ago.

Oh wait, I think that what the president meant was that according to his carefully crafted definition of the word torture, we don’t exactly fall into that category; torture being defined as causing such anguish so as to be akin to “organ failure” or “death” (which we still questionably cross that line too, but who’s counting?).

Fact is, if it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and poops like a duck (we had over forty ducks when I was a kid living on our front patio, so I keep making this kind of mental link between ducks and poop), it’s a duck… Unless you’re George W. Bush and Arch Chancelor Dick Cheney, at which point the duck becomes whatever you decide to call it but most definitely NOT a duck.

Do you get me?
