Charles Graner you scurvy dog!

I've been watching more Daily Show recently, and honestly it's getting harder and harder to laugh at these things (although I do. Oh man, that Cordrry is funny). The most recent debacle concerns Charles Graner, one of the soldiers responsible for the prisoner torture at Abu Ghraib. After hearing the defense counsel's closing arguments, you have to wonder if they even gave him real lawyers.

On piling prisoners: 'Don't cheerleaders all over America form pyramids six to eight times a year. Is that torture?'

On the leashes: 'You're keeping control of them. A tether is a valid control to be used in corrections.' 'In Texas we'd lasso them and drag them out of there.'

Naturally, reaction from pundits was swift, including this reasoned discussion of how prisoners will soon shiv Charles Graner. Nay, they must shiv him.

Charles Graner will soon learn about abuse.

With that kind of justice, who needs the courts?
