Guantanamo Baywatch

Colbert and The Daily Show has been firing on all cylinders this month, after come off a 1 week break at Memorial Day. This clip, from Thursday night's TDS is hilarious. Crooks and Liars comments succintly:

"Doocy: “So with the recent Supreme Court decision saying that detainees down at Gitmo can wind up with habeas corpus and get legal rights and stuff like that”

Stewart: Legal rights and stuff. It’s actually all been explained in Thomas Paine’s ‘A Treatise on the Rights of Man…and Sh*t’”

It’s crazy to stop and think about how far we’ve come in just eight short years. It is now within “mainstream” right-wing discourse to condemn the Supreme Court for ruling that the President can’t lock people up for life without a chance for them to prove their innocence. Is this even America anymore?"

Kool-aid fanatic Bill Kristol makes some mind-blowingly myopic statements "a milestone towards a more decent and democratic regime in Iraq" - yes, a botched hanging after a rushed kangaroo court trial and sentancing. Awesome stuff.
