The Politics of Dubiousness: Andrew Sullivan Links Obvious Parody As Real Story

I blame his passion for hallucinogenic pharmaceuticals.

Just like the primetime series, the cartoon, “24: Little Jack,” will depict a 24-hour period in the life of young Jack Bauer.

“Just because we’ll show Jack as a little kid, doesn’t mean he’s going to stop kicking the ass of all those Arabs he runs into,” says Surnow. “We’re getting our message across to adults that it takes a lot of torture to get the truth from these terrorists, and we believe that children need to see that as well because they’re growing up in an extremely dangerous world.”

It's not clear that Sullivan doesn't know this is a joke. But he does end the post with a snide aside intended to suggest this is all evidence of how torture is corrupting our society.

And the idiot does not seem to possess a sense of irony, and increasingly lacks any semblance of a sense of reality.

Thanks to Allah.
