i despise republicans

Democrats are truly wretched, but Republicans are working hard to make me despise them even more than I despise those on the left. Via The Y Files, I find a truly repellant article from that tries to make the case that Senator John McCain's experience of torture in Vietnam is evidence that torture works! In "John McCain: Torture Worked on Me", Carl Limbacher writes:
Nearly forty years ago, however - when McCain was held captive in a North Vietnamese prison camp - some of the same techniques were used on him. And - as McCain has publicly admitted at least twice - the torture worked!
This is a truly odious lie. What really happened is that McCain "broke" under torture, gave his captors some useless information and signed a confession "admitting" to war crimes. McCain ended up crippled from his treatment as well. Thus the lesson for Dubya and his pro-torture lickspittles is that if you want to get useless information and fake confessions from prisoners at Gitmo, you should torture them until they are physically crippled.
