"I never compromised my humanity...."

Check this quote out from Shrub when he was owner of the Texas Rangers:

Still O-fer. Hasn't been right about anything ever.

Ways to improve the wild-card playoff system - MLB:
"'I made my arguments and went down in flames. History will prove me right.' -- Texas Rangers owner George W. Bush after voting against realignment and a new wild-card system during a Major League Baseball owners meeting in September 1993. Bush was the lone dissenter in a 27-1 vote."

THE Greatest generation.

How REAL men roll.

WWII veteran Nazi interrogators denounced Bush’s Torture techniques:

" For six decades, they held their silence. The group of World War II veterans kept a military code and the decorum of their generation, telling virtually no one of their top-secret work interrogating Nazi prisoners of war at Fort Hunt. “We got more information out of a German general with a game of chess or Ping-Pong than they do today, with their torture,” said Henry Kolm, 90, an MIT physicist who had been assigned to play chess in Germany with Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess. ”During the many interrogations, I never laid hands on anyone,” said George Frenkel, 87, of Kensington. “We extracted information in a battle of the wits. I’m proud to say I never compromised my humanity.”…read on BushCo. and the Republican Congress will always be known as the “Party of Torture.” Their pundits as well are a disgrace to the American flag that they wrap themselves around in everyday…"

Oh, man, this has turned into a great story. I blogged about it a couple of weeks ago here.

US men battle over ownership of amputated leg

Two US men are locked in a war of words over custody of an amputated leg, which one of them says he lost in a plane crash and another insists he owns since it was inside a barbecue he bought at an auction.

John Wood of South Carolina says he had left the limb inside the barbecue smoker at a storage facility, because he wanted to be buried with it. But the storage business auctioned off the barbecue and other items after Wood fell behind with payments.

Wood is now up in arms over the leg the buyer of the barbecue wants to keep.

Shannon Whisnant, who was at first shocked by what he found inside the smoker, now believes it could bring him fame and fortune.

For now, he has put up a sign on the smoker charging adults three dollars and children one dollar for a peek inside, even though the leg is no longer inside but at a funeral home.

He believes a lot more money could be made by going on television shows.

Whisnant even suggested joint custody of the leg, much to Wood's outrage.
