Watch This (if you can) and Tell Me We Are Still Human
Well, we definitely know "our" President isn't human:
President Bush, seeking to salvage the embattled nomination of Michael Mukasey as attorney general, on Thursday defended the former judge's refusal to say whether he considers waterboarding as illegal torture. But the nomination was expected to suffer another setback in the Senate.What an asshole.
Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., was expected to announce his opposition to Mukasey in a speech on the Senate floor.
Bush said it was unfair to ask Mukasey about interrogation techniques on which he has not been briefed. "He doesn't know whether we use that technique or not," the president told a group of reporters invited into the Oval Office.
Further, Bush said, "It doesn't make any sense to tell an enemy what we're doing."
