I weep.

Say goodbye to the United States you grew up knowing.

Unless the Democrats filibuster this bill (and we all know how strong the Dems' collective spine is), the pro-torture, anti- habeas corpus bill that the Three Amigos took up the ass from the Bush administration will pass in the Senate today.

How did it come to this?

Even if the law is eventually struck down by the Supreme Court, the fact that we, as a nation, have had this debate about the degree to which torture is okay and striking down a right that has been acknowledged and accepted since 1215 has destroyed whatever moral authority we had left.

I am ashamed.
