GOP Death Wish

Politically, it's a pleasure to see Dick Cheney casting his dark, pro-torture shadow across the face of the leaderless, rudderless Republican Party.

Polls show most Americans intelligently do not support torture, and the lawlessless from which it emerged.

Some memos and photos of torture are hardly the end of the documentation likely to surface about the Bush era; more will come out about its disregard for clean air and fresh water, or corrupt military contracting, unjustifiable Justice Department manipulations and in other areas where the law was skirted or broken.

I'm waiting for Republicans to make a clean break with the Bush administration, as some of their more moderate members must know that without a new vision and positive agenda, their party is headed for further electoral defeats and more obvious marginalization.
