American people don't approve of torture? Well, maybe they just need convincing...

As some may have already heard, yesterday the Senate voted 90-9 in approval of an addendum to an appropriations bill "setting interrogation limits," aka. banning torture. Here's the article on it in The Washington Post. The bill was introduced by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and supported by all but 9 senators. Guess which party claims all nine pro-torture senators? Why, the same party of all the senators (excepting "Douchebag" Inouye) who voted against armoring humvees, of course!

Here's the list of 9 senators who apparently believe in that "ends justify the means" rubbish (c/o War and Piece):
Allard (R-CO)
Bond (R-MO)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Stevens (R-AK)

Special props to Oklahoma for having 2 pro-torture senators, and Texas for having 1 senator and 1 president (W has threatened to veto the whole bill if the anti-torture addendum passes).

I guess the up coming Red River Battle Royale got them all riled up!! The should take another vote next week I'm sure only one side (OK or TX) will still have as many votes. (right...)
