Barack Obama, who deserves credit for releasing the memos detailing the Bush administration’s torture memos, hasn’t ruled out prosecuting the Bush lawyers who authorized the torture, reports ProPublica, which last week was the first news organization to point out that Dubya’s lawyers might not be off the hook.

Meanwhile, torture is straining the fragile romance that libertarians and conservatives forged over tea last week. L. Neil Smith fumes on his Twitter feed, “The moron Limbaugh defends torture as an American institution. I despair of ever being able to work with conservatives against Obamanistas.”
