Carrying Heavy Water

Hugh Hewitt is a conservative talk show host on the Salem Radio network. He is probably the most intelligent and easily the most personable of the lot, and, most of the time, a reasonable man. When he is not, which happens a lot on his blog, he is a political hack of the sort that who explains everything in terms of Clinton's faults and Bush's glory.

For the last two days Hugh has been exercised the Ted Kennedy said this on the Senate floor:

    "Shamefully we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management.

Could anything be more self-evident? Nope, according to Hugh, :

    I will not bother to rebut this idiocy. It needs no rebuttal, anymore than Holocaust deniers need rebuttal.

Um, what's the problem Hugh? Are you saying we didn't torture prisoners? Are you saying that what happened at Abu Ghrain is right, correct and in some way shape or form something to be exalted over? Come on Hugh, no one's that stupid.

Oh, except for Rush.
