Fascist Nitpick

Glenn Greenwald:
So according to The New York Times, it's journalistically improper to call waterboarding "torture" -- when done by the United States, but when Nazi Germany (or China) does exactly the same thing, then it may be called "torture" repeatedly and without qualification. An organization which behaves this way may be called many things; "journalist" isn't one of them.
I make no claims to perfect prose but I don't think I'd use the word "pundit" for any organization either.

Whoa, dammit, just waitaminute there, my mcgravy friend.

The mikey organization is ALL about the punditry. And we'd appreciate something in the way of financial support from our friends in the frozen north.

C'mon, after you've got the snowshoes and the 800cc snowmobile with the custom track and sparkle-glo fairings what else do you fucking need, brolo?

(Ok, "brolo" was W/V's suggestion, but if I remember past tonight I'm gonna use the shit out of it, brolo)

I am willing to support waterboarding for Wisconsin Republicans. Especially if it's not really torture.

Not surprising considering they insist the Geneva Conventions do not apply to publishing Ross Douhat.

Cruel and unusual punditment?
