Debasement of Discourse

Must not let this go without notice.

Via Crooks and Liars, Peronist Rudy Giuliani exposes his moral relativism about torture: it's ok when we do it.

At a town-hall meeting in Iowa last night, Rudy Giuliani did his best impression of a crazy person.

After noting that Giuliani ally Michael Mukasey, the Attorney General nominee, “fudged” his answer on waterboarding, a local woman asked if a presudebt can order waterboarding, even though it’s torture.

Mr. Giuliani responded: “Okay. First of all, I don’t believe the attorney general designate in any way was unclear on torture. I think Democrats said that; I don’t think he was.”

Ms. Gustitus said: “He said he didn’t know if waterboarding is torture.”

Mr. Giuliani said: “Well, I’m not sure it is either. I’m not sure it is either. It depends on how it’s done. It depends on the circumstances. It depends on who does it.

I don't know if he's crazy, but he's certainly dangerous: Rudy ♥ Torture.
