Does anyone know when Dick Cheney became Prime Minister of Canada?

Maybe it's finally time to acknowledge that the terrorist playbook says to make these charges. If it didn't work so well with the blame America Canada first crowd perhaps we could be done with this foolishness.

The treatment of the suspects, accused of plotting a number of terrorist strikes in Ontario that allegedly included bombings and taking senior politicians hostage, "constitutes torture," lawyer Rocco Galati said outside the court.

"That torture includes being kept in a room that's lit 24 hours a day, being woken up every half-hour, being beaten by the guards, on and on and on," said Galati, who represents Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, a 21-year-old health sciences graduate of McMaster University.

i must say that i really hate lawyers... from any country!
 
I've got an idea! Instead of keeping the light on all day and night, how about flicking them on and off constantly. That's a compromise should appease the appeasers.
 
Come to think of it, this description of "torture" sounds a lot like my kids school. No windows and they don't get any "fresh air" unless they happen to have PE and they happen to get taken outside. And he doesn't get assigned a lawyer either.
 
Buy Danish,

It's one thing that they say they were tortured, it's another when they start describing it. You would think that at least their lawyer would say, "Look we better not tell them exactly what you mean by torture."

Maybe they heard Durbin describing the worst atrocities since Pol Pot was murdering millions as being a cold room and thought we all felt that way.
 
Off topic: Can someone enlighten me as to what the adage "You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" (It was referenced here, and the multiple references to ears has thrown me off)

Looked it up on wiki, and now I'm actually more confused. How do a pig's ear and purse come together?
 
DavidU,

Cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear

I'll link the page on another post.
 
What are the odds the answer would have come from Andy?

from here
 
AH! Damn French Peasants and their crappy purses confusing me!

Thank you!

The bad thing is when I see the name Andy, I now just expect the word 'pinko' to follow it close by :)
 
DavidU,

Would this help?

RW- Much better, though in the spirit of fairness, I would have to assume Andy would not only drop a pinko to make sure the libs out there knew where they stood, but also make some kind of joke about the French. Because after all its the French we are talking about here!

But I don't want to put words in Andy's mouth.
 
CALLING ANDY...ANDY COME IN PLEASE

Please reword this with the appropriate flair.
