I posted a pretty angry rant on torture earlier. Took it down because I think it was not my best stuff.

I am still mad, don't get me wrong. Saw Dr. Senator Frist on yesterday--mimicking the President. Asked by Chris Matthews about water-boarding, he refused--said he wouldnt' talk about specific methods. How about talk about your oath--the first part "First do no harm."

Not sure how to address this. It is one thing to disagree over policy. Seems like we used to all agree that torture was bad. That seemed a baseline. If that is gone, what do we agree on?
