Of course this is about the Blogging Tories, who all have a shiny new talking point here:
Why are the opposition parties and media so intent on focusing on the singular aspect of alleged ‘torture’ (with a shoe?) when there are so many other, more important issues to discuss?
But seriously people, shoes are not weapons of torture. One Taliban was hit with a shoe (and not even by us!), and the entire county screams of torture and our troops are war criminals and we broke international Geneva conventions.
But, hey, here's a thought -- let's check in on reality:
The Canadians took the captive back when they found him being beaten with shoes by a half dozen Afghan police.
Here's a simple question for Blogging Tory co-founder and Captain Canada Stephen Taylor: Do you think there's any danger to democracy from a sizable collection of deranged, lunatic, ignorant pathological liars?
No, really ... I'm curious. Take your time and get back to me when you'd like to chat. Specifically, I'd like to beat you with a shoe. I've heard it's no big deal.
