Though Obama released Bush Era torture memos ten days ago, they’re still all anyone in the news media (both real and fake) has been able to talk about since. I can’t really say why. Perhaps they take a very long time to read? Perhaps people are comforted by finding something even more depressing than the economy? Whatever the reason, torture was the name of the game at Comedy Central, a high order, considering that even I have issues joking about torture. That’s right. I’ll make off-color jokes about 9/11 but torture? Torture is a challenge.
And that’s why I leave such things to the professionals.
