You're a mean one, Newt Gingrich.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
Newt Gingrich.

You're a bad banana
With a greasy black peel.

You're a monster, Newt Gingrich.
Your heart's an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You've got garlic in your soul.
Newt Gingrich.

I wouldn't touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

You're a vile one, Newt Gingrich.
You have termites in your smile.
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile.
Newt Gingrich.

Given the choice between the two of you
I'd take the seasick crocodile.

You're a foul one, Newt Gingrich.
You're a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk.
Newt Gingrich.

The three words that best describe you,
are, and I quote: "Stink. Stank. Stunk."

You're a rotter, Newt Gingrich.
You're the king of sinful sots.
Your heart's a dead tomato splot
With moldy purple spots,
Newt Gingrich.

Your soul is an apalling dump heap
overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment
of deplorable rubbish imaginable,
Mangled up in tangled up knots.

You nauseate me, Newt Gingrich.
With a nauseaus super-naus.
You're a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
Newt Gingrich.

You're a three decker saurkraut and toadstool sandwich
With arsenic sauce.

"These are not terrorists. These are people we picked up by mistake."

Fair enough, but to be frank: What else is new?

A large number of both past and present Gitmo detainees were, ahem, "picked up by mistake", which is a very polite way of saying that the US needed some bad guys to lock up, didn't have a clue where to find them and so relied on bounty hunters and anybody with a grudge against their neighbour to supply them.

And now Obama has been proven to be a bold faced liar, who's promise to "reject the Military Commissions Act, and adhere to the Geneva Conventions" was not worth a dime, as he will continue Bush's mockery of the law, making the US look like your average banana republic.

Well played Mssr. Ugh.

I had a bad feeling when it was announced that Sec. Gates would be staying on, and it's been wholly vindicated. Life's full of trade-offs, but I don't see what we're getting for this one.

Thanks, the best part about that is it fits perfectly and other than the name I didn't change a thing. I especially like:

Works for Cheney too.

Think of it: they shot several rounds from a gun,

Hmmm...I fired several rounds from an AK-47 when I was in Vietnam last year, I guess I better be careful.

Bipartisanshipfullyness?

Even the Bush administration's Combatant Status Review Commissions, which were heavily slanted towards the government, found them not to be enemy combatants. (The government had decided that some of them were not enemy combatants even before their CSRT hearings.) Despite that fact, we have kept them in prison for over seven years. (After they were cleared in 2003, they could not be released back to China, since they would be tortured or killed.)

I protest. At most they would receive robust interrogation and if they got it, clearly they deserved it.

Among other things, no confirmation hearing. What are the chances that any SecDef you really want would actually have gotten a floor vote yet? We're also getting a guy who can sell the changing of military priorities; without Gates, the chances of that would go from "maybe" to "forget about it." I think that he's also making it easier to withdraw from Iraq.

@ Sasha:

sorry, but you're wrong about that.

Qin Gang, China's foreign ministry spokesmen stated unequivocally in a press conference recently that the Guantanamo Bay Uyghurs were members of the East Turkistan Islamic Movement. In the eyes of the Chinese government, they've already been convicted of terrorism. They will be tortured and then executed if they're sent back.

Here's the Chinese transcript of the press conference:
