We can always dream...

U.S. Congress Must Impeach the Vice President for Torture.

But no, a blow-job from an intern is a "high crime", while reviving and sanctioning medieval torture techniques like waterboarding and strapado isn't.

(Since we're discussing dreams) if you can attribute responsibility for torture by US forces to the Veep, why not the President as well?

I certainly do - as Eisenhower said, "the buck stops here". But Cheney has also been the Administration's most fearless public advocate, and it would be nice to get him too.

kind of goes with the territory really.

sex between two consensual adults on screen is widely regarded as disgusting, but killing them brutually just rates a warning and age limit.

stupid beyond compare.

Back in the day when I worked in a video store over Xmas break, I once had a mum and her 7/8ish son in to rent video games. These weren't rated but they did have warnings on the label, one of which was 15+. I told the mum about this and her reply still makes me shake my head in disbelief...

"Oh, it's not sexual is it?"
"No. No, it's because of the violence."
"Oh, that's fine then."

...Whaddya do...
