tommyjohnson44 idolizes John McCain. The level of his mancrush is almost embarrassing. Which led tommy to insist plaintively in text:

tommyjohnson44: mcccain is against torture

Well, tommy must have missed the latest memo, because his lover just voted AGAINST a ban on waterboarding:

You can go back just a few months to when then presidential contender Rudolph Giuliani seemed to equivocate before a forum of potential voters in Iowa on whether waterboarding is, in fact, torture.

“It depends on how it’s done,” Giuliani said. “It depends on the circumstances. It depends on who does it.”

McCain pounced on his friend and former opponent for the Republican nomination. As someone who spent five years as a prisoner of war in a North Vietnamese prison camp where he said he was the subject of beatings and harsh interrogations, McCain has long spoke passionately on the issue.

“All I can say is that it was used in the Spanish Inquisition, it was used in Pol Pot’s genocide in Cambodia, and there are reports that it is being used against Buddhist monks today,” McCain said in interview with the New York Times in response to Giuliani comments. “They should know what it is. It is not a complicated procedure. It is torture.”

But on Wednesday, when the Senate voted on the intelligence bill, which includes a provision that effectively bans waterboarding from being used as an interrogation technique by all 16 intelligence agencies, McCain voted against the bill.

So sorry, tommy, to burst your tiny delusional bubble, but your steely-eyed man of principle is a wishy-washy flip-flopper, who, having survived torture himself, now votes AGAINST banning a form of torture that dates back to the Spanish Freakin' Inquisition, a form of torture WE prosecuted a Japanese officer for using in WWII.

Frankly, tommy, I am disgusted with John McCain. So the next time you roll over next to him in bed, you tell him from me, "You're a scumbag."
