Brutalizing the law

our esteemed republican senate majority, with the possible exception of three (graham, mccain, and warner), are seemingly prepared to brush off our constitution right along with the geneva convention... and what do we get...?
How many more times do we need to create legislation that's defective, that's going to confuse people, that's got not a snowball's chance in hell of passing Supreme Court muster?" said Graham, a military lawyer.

so, what the hell is bushco trying to accomplish...?
All these eleventh-hour redefinitions of torture are presidential attempts to "afford brutality the cloak of law," in the words of Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter. But increasingly, it seems clear that its real purpose is simply to brutalize the law.
