The Birth of a Right-wing Meme

Clifford May echoes Marc Thiessen and and a right-wing meme is born: torture is OK when we do it to Muslims because their religion allows them to give up secrets once they have suffered as much pain as they can endure.

I fully expect them to insist, next, that Arabs do not have souls in the conventional sense.

It's difficult to express just how corrupt and immoral the GOP and its defenders have become of late.

This reminds me of the "they don't feel pain like we do" argument that's used to justify treating animals with cruelty. I'm sure many neocons will sleep more soundly in the knowledge that we've treated prisoners at least as humanely as we would the family pet.
