Words Fail Me.
Snark isn't appropriate and no amount of rage or outrage can fully express the contempt that I feel for these people. In four and a half years of covering the Bush administration and chronicling its endless evils, I have never read such a sickening story of abuse in all my life. Even Yoo and Cheney would puke after reading this.
The boyfriend's defense is that he was asleep while this was happening to the infant but investigators discovered that this horrifying abuse was ongoing and longterm. If there was ever a nonfatal crime that should carry the death penalty, this is it. Don't read this story if you've just eaten. In fact, don't read this story if you're about to eat, either.
