Abu Ghraib -- the Yale of the Middle East

Are kegstands and funneling against the Geneva convention? Of course not -- they're not mentioned anywhere in that august document. So surely you'll agree with Rush Limbaugh that the torture and humilation of Iraqi prisoners of war by American soldiers is no big deal either. When a caller mentioned that the stack of naked men depicted in the notorious series of photos currently being blown all over the media was like a "college fraternity prank," Rush rushed to agree:

Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You heard of need to blow some steam off?

Boys will be boys ... I guess. If it's really no worse than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation, John Kerry and George W. Bush -- both being members of that Yale secret society -- will surely agree there's nothing wrong with abusing and sexually humiliating prisoners of war. In fact, those poor Iraqis should be grateful to the American military for giving them the Yale university experience without the exorbitant tuition costs.
