Pimp my GITMO


Not only has Obama left his campaign pledge to close the gates and end the service of tasty, Halal, Mango chicken forever unfulfilled...but now he's going the other way. Playing Pimp My GITMO apparently. Maybe a reality show to raise money for the deficit is in the works?

"...President Obama has not fulfilled his pledge to close the detainee prison at Guantanamo Bay, but he has brought Skype, Playstation3 and "life skills" classes to the detainees at the island facility.

While the 181 men being held in the prison wait to learn their fates after the administration fell through on its January 2010 deadline to move them out, 90 percent now live in a communal environment that includes Skype, the online video chat service, and access to a 17,000-book library.

That's up from 40 percent of detainees a year ago.

The "Twilight" series
, a hit among so-called "tweens," is also popular with detainees, the camp's "librarian" said..." (source)

And I've seen pictures of foosball tables. They'll probably all have a Nook before I do...

Once Again, Rush was Right

Rush coined the phrase "Club GITMO" and was the first to bring attention to the better-than-average living conditions the terrorists residing there were privy to (remember the mango chicken?)... The DUers and Kos Kids lost their friggin minds over this...

But, like the bumper sticker says...even on drugs, Rush is right..and it must have killed WashPo to have to publish this headline:

Six detainees would rather stay at Guantanamo Bay than be returned to Algeria

"...Given the choice between repatriation and incarceration, the men choose Gitmo, according to their lawyers..." (source)

I feel pretty confident in saying that our worst prison is better than most of the countries these little fanatics came from... It's hard to get mango chicken delivered to your tent...
