Recently in Panty on the Head Award Category
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. Dana Rohrabacher on Wednesday dismissed the idea that taunting terrorism suspects with women's panties is a form of torture.
In a debate about detainee treatment at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the California Republican cited panties eight times, arguing that making suspected terrorists wear women's underwear on their heads isn't demeaning and degrading enough to be called torture. story
The best part of this story is not the Congressman pointing out the asinine idea that panties on the head are torture - it's the part where he 'cited panties eight times,' - as if he were tweaking the other Representatives in the hearing. They must cringe every time they hear the word panty. How scandalous!
Best follow-up quote: "I mean, OK, describing his mother and sister as whores, that's certainly not a nice thing to do."
TASER electronic stun guns are a form of torture that can kill, a UN committee has declared after several recent deaths in North America. "The use of these weapons causes acute pain, constituting a form of torture,'' the UN's Committee against Torture said.I'd say listening to the insufferable windbags at the UN "causes acute pain, constituting a form of torture," but perhaps this definition is, um, a smidgen more liberal, if that is at all possible. The UN definition seems to be, "It hurts - and someone else is doing it."
United Nations, you win the Panty on the Head award for minimizing the definition of torture. I've a feeling you'll be back soon.
