A CBS reporter asked, “So ‘dunk in the water’ means what? We have a pool now at Guantanamo and they go swimming?”

Shredding Truck
From Wonkette

Shredding Truck Was Heading to Cheney’s

A Wonkette reader snapped this photo on of a document shredding truck headed to Dick Cheney’s compound at the Naval Observatory on Oct. 19. Perhaps coincidentally, the truck is operated by the same company the Secret Service contracted with for “Pickup & Destruction Of Sensitive Waste Material.”

    Condom production
    From The N.Y. Times

    Army: We Misled Seven Families

    The U.S. Army has concluded that it gave wrong or misleading information to the families of seven dead soldiers, including Pat Tillman, above. One step it’s taking to improve its notification process: “an $800,000 training film that highlights how grieving families react.”
