Senate Wins Fight To Lower Allowable Amperage Levels On Detainees' Testicles

September 29, 2006 | Issue 42•40

Senate Wins R
WASHINGTON, DC—Led by a bipartisan group of senators critical of White House policy on suspected terrorists, the Senate passed a bill Thursday that prohibits interrogators from exceeding 100 amps per testicle when questioning detainees. "Even in times of war, it counterproductive and wrong to employ certain inhumane interrogation techniques, and using three-digit amperage levels on the testicles of captives constitutes torture," said Sen. John Warner (R-VA), who has also supported reducing the size of attack dogs and the height of nude pyramids. "Using amperages of 99 and lower, with approved surge protectors on the jumper-cable clamps, are the hallmarks of a civilized society." The legislation did not address amperage restrictions on suspected terrorists' labia.


LOL.... Thats satire from the Onion. However I would not put a discussion like this happening in our nation outside the realm of impossibility. For it was the idiotic right wing Rush Limbaugh who after all thought that some of the pictures from Abu Ghraib as being no worse than a college fraternity prank.

It didn't even register as possible satire until I read "per testicle".


Of course, if there really *had* been such a bill, it wouldn't have passed.

Aditi said...

I did a double take on the onion piece for a moment wondering if i am the only one who thought it warped

The sad thing about that Onion article is that too many of those Onion articles from the past now read like the news. The Bush Administration is doing a very good job of killing American political satire, along with lots of other things.

I'm avoiding the news of the "torture compromise" to preserve my sanity, and the illusion that the US Constitution means something...

Yeah, The Onion has a hard time staying out front of the reality. Which is why I prefer the Weekly World News.

@ Eli.. Don't be too sure. Cos this is the same bunch that said it was not torture unless it caused organ failure or something.;)

@Aditi.. Yep The onion has been at this for ages now. Will post recipes up. Do you eat eggs btw?

Is that for real the testicle thing.OUCH..really sad that this is what they do to interrogate the prisoners.

Sanjay said...

@Lalitha.. It's not for real. Satire courtesy of the Onion. But seems real doesn't it? Says a lot too about the state of affairs.

I almost fell for that onion article! Still, I wouldn't be surprised if a debate very similar to that came up among our rediculous administration very soon.

Sanjay said...

Mo..sad isn't it?

Strictly for my friends said...
