Here we go boys and girls. It’s torture, torture, torture in this first segment of tonights Countdown Show.
Our government denies doing it, said we didn’t do it, then the truth wills out as usual of course and we find out we did even more torture than most people thought we did, that Bush and Fredo lied about it even more. In the first half of this segment John Dean joins Keith to discuss justifying torture in the DEPARTMENT OF JUST US.
Part two of Keith’s opening segment on torture and the Bush administration. Is there anything at all that can be done to stop the outlaw Bush administration? Neal Katval, who was the lead counsel in the case of Hamdam vs. Rumsfeld in which he won an appeal to the Supreme Court, stops by to discuss.
Hell no! I won’t go! Is that an old anti-war protest? Nope. It’s the new motto of Senator Larry Craig who after a judge refused to overturn his conviction, decided he’d hang around for a couple of more years after all. Larry Craig is the gift that keeps on giving. Chris Cillizza from the Washington Post joins Keith.
In this segment, Keith and Rachael show how Rush continues to change the facts so that his listeners won’t be disturbed by what the truth is. To be a Rush listener, you have to believe that everything Rush says is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. In reality, it is generally everything but the truth.
No matter how much evidence you have to the contrary, a Rush Limbaugh dumbohead will ignore all the facts because those facts would interfere with their Limbaugh Radio Utopia type world they live in.
As Keith and Rachael Maddow point out those listeners who tune in to Limbaugh, need the big lie to justify themselves. Don’t ever expect them to want the truth. It is pointless to argue with them, to discuss anything with them, when two words are missing from their vocabulary – facts and reality.
Another example today: Rush invites votevets to buy an ad on his show so that his listeners will think he is being fair. Meanwhile, what he doesn’t tell his listeners but already knows is that his station bosses have already nixed that idea. Therefore, they can go away still believing in the fairness of all things that happen in Fatsoland.
It is the same reason why they will only accept Rush’s edited account of what he said on his program in regards to phony soldiers and Army Staff Sgt. Brian Mcgough. For them, the edited version with a minute and thirty five seconds cut out is the real account, no matter how many times you play what actually went out over the air waves. Then again, I imagine that there are still people who really do believe that Nixon’s Secretary Rosemary Woods really did accidentally erase those tapes.
It is the same principle regarding what Limpbottom has said in regard to phony soldiers and Army Staff Sgt. Brian Mcgough. No matter how many times you confront them with the original complete broadcast, the only truth they will accept is the Limbaugh edited version, which changes the context of what he really said.
And the winner is…the Republican National Committee for its new logo.
