Pepsi Good 

Veto this, Bitch!

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Setting up a possible veto showdown with the White House, the Senate voted overwhelmingly for an amendment to a Pentagon spending bill that sets standards for the treatment of prisoners in U.S. military custody.

The measure, sponsored by Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, would require American troops to follow interrogation standards set in the Army Field Manual and bar "cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment" of prisoners in U.S. custody.

On Wednesday night, senators voted 90-9 to include the provision to the $440 billion Defense Department spending bill now wending its way through Congress.

The nine monsters who voted against it:

Allard (R-CO)
Bond (R-MO)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sessions (R-AL)
Stevens (R-AK)

Heroes and Patriots:

Capt. Ian Fishback

Sergeant Joseph Darby

At least now I can slink off into a corner and die of Avian Flu knowing something good happened once.

By the way Fishback is getting raked over the coals right now. Hopefully, someone will set up a legal defense fund for him. He's going to need it after the ogres get done sharpening their knives.
