... And Yet Another Reason To Dump Gitmo Detainees In Rhode Island

Wow... and I thought California had the monopoly on mentally ill politicians....

A Rhode Island Democratic lawmaker says he'll donate $100 to charity for every second former President George W. Bush withstands waterboarding.

State Rep. Rod Driver sent letters making the offer to Bush as well as to former Vice President Dick Cheney and ex-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Bush's administration allowed the interrogation technique, which simulates drowning, to be used on terrorism suspects. Driver says if Bush is confident it isn't torture, he should try it himself. His offer was reported Thursday in The Westerly Sun.

A representative for Rice said she would not participate, while Bush's and Cheney's offices did not return calls seeking comment.

By all means, since the elected representatives of Rhode Island are so enamored with terrorists (see previous post), they should put their money where their big, fat mouths are, and stand up and offer to take Gitmo detainees into their state.

Honestly... what can you possibly say about an alleged American who would rather torture an ex-American President, V.P., or Secretary of State than a terrorist who seeks to kill American citizens?

What a douchebag.
