After actively supporting a formal policy of torture and abuse of countless prisoners, Rush Limbaugh now says this:

"And there are people in this country, who are Americans, and have the same view of totalitarianism that all the worst regimes in the world have had. They just are a minority -- or have been a minority. And they have to be stealth to get anywhere, because who's gonna vote for torture, who's gonna vote for tyranny, who's gonna vote for dictatorship? But we did. We did, and you see it slowly encroaching. And if they could move faster on this, they would."


The GOP is against imaginary torture; but in favor of actual torture. In fact, of course, they have no such principles. They are for anything a Republican president does; and against anything a Democratic president does.

By the way, Mr Limbaugh, in response to your question: "Who's gonna vote for torture?" You, Mr Limbaugh, twice.
