No To Fascists = No To Gonzales

In the real world, a no vote on the nomination of Alberto "Torture treaty doesn't bar `cruel, inhuman' tactics" Gonzales would be obvious. Unfortunately, our country is run by men and women whose moral compass is, shall we say, somewhat skewed.

A friend of mine the other night said to me:

If we were having dinner in Munich in 1934 and I said, Hitler will kill all the Jews, everyone would've said I was crazy and over the top.

He's right.

An unprovoked unjust war in Iraq, a U.S. citizen held indefinitely without trial and the implementation of an immoral torture policy, demeans our values and leads us down a path that leads to despotism.

If you believe that last sentence to be over-the-top, please imagine yourself at that dinner party in 1934.

Alberto, the mastermind of the Bush torture policy which made Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib possible, would have made a very good Nazi.

Armando at the Daily Kos has put out the word, every U.S. senator should vote no on the Gonzales nomination for Attorney General.

They "should", but do you think they will? After seeing the Condi fiasco and the inauguration/Ohio voting mess, I have my doubts.
