What the fuck does a guy have to do these days to get a fatwa on him?

Bill Clinton Flatly Asserts He Opposed War at Start

And like everything else he ever did, it comes off flat. Just another presidential pussy who thinks some sort of bipartisan decorum est more important than a stack of corpses where the tower of Babel stood. Maybe they’re all just trying to get to heaven on the backs of the dead.

Stephen King suggests Jenna Bush be waterboarded…

Second! Votes… All right, the motion is carried 7 to 3.

…if the Bush administration didn’t think it was torture, they ought to do some personal investigation. Someone in the Bush family should actually be waterboarded so they could report on it to George. I said, I didn’t think he would do it, but I suggested Jenna be waterboarded and then she could talk about whether or not she thought it was torture. Also sprak King

You know I think I could stand to be questioned by police, or even a long weekend in County. That’s a pretty good test. If I can handle it without vowing to kill everyone who did it to me, their supporters, and any trace of their genetic content they have in the world, it’s not torture. Pretty simple rule of thumb. I invite the comparison shopping for which I seem overdue.

1 All kidding aside, seriously this time, I hope no one gets hurt.

2 Unlike your mom.
