It's like, torture George

Dubya parses the meaning of “human dignity” at today’s Presidential press conference:

QUESTION: What do you say to the argument that your proposal is basically seeking support for torture, coerced evidence and secret hearings? And Senator McCain says your plan would put U.S. troops at risk. What do you think about that?

BUSH: This debate is occurring because of the Supreme Court's ruling that said that we must conduct ourselves under the Common Article 3 of the Geneva Convention. And that Common Article 3 says that, you know, There will be no outrages upon human dignity. It's like -- it's very vague. What does that mean, outrages upon human dignity? That's a statement that is wide open to interpretation.

With you all the way Mr. President. I mean, come on. What does “outrages upon human dignity,” really mean? Surely not waterboarding, beatings, rendition, secret prisons, or solitary confinement. It’s really wide open to interpretation. Unlike the Bible and US Constitution…

The writers at the Daily Show and Colbert Report will CRY when this guy leaves office.
