“I’m asking you to imagine giving these powers to the worst person who could hold them, a person who would abuse them drastically and whose abuse would be in no way disguised or hidden. Maybe when George W. Bush said that the United States does not torture, while torturing, that satisfied you. Maybe when Barack Obama said the United States would no longer torture (but supposedly never really had) although he would still claim the power to do so that satisfied you. But the primary offense is not the torturing.”
For me it would might be Palin. For you______? Doesn’t matter who “fill in the blank” might be, this commentary explains a point of logic too few get.
