The Daily Wrap

Today on the Dish we saw proof that marriage equality and decriminalizing pot have rapidly gained acceptance among conservatives (but not Republicans, who are too busy trying to frighten you). Also, California moved towards taxing marijuana, while the Washington Times failed to move me on hate crimes. On the torture front, Condi Rice tried to defend it before a group students, Fox News went to the defense of Inquisitors, Clive Crook defended himself, Jonah Goldberg embarrassed himself, a Dish reader shared his experience as an interrogator, Drum analyzed Obama's latest words on torture, and I addressed the charge that the British did indeed torture. On a lighter note, I asked readers to submit scenes of Cheney-like characters from cinema, and you delivered here. On a much lighter note, Palin chatted with American Chopper, and sat on a bear.
