Get your favorite ... torturers?
Just when you thought you have seen it all, apparently the best way to get a point across is with trading cards.
The Center for Constitutional Rights created trading cards for the Torture Team highlighted by George W. Bush. The site is worth going to just for the sound alone.
There are different categories of torturers from The Executives (those in the White House) to Spies and Free Agents. The CCR created a flash site and clearly spent a lot of time on it. You can order the set of twenty cards (for free, apparently), examine evidence and, even, create your own cards.
The idea of the trading cards is to get all those involved out of the open and not just the principal members.
This isn't a forum for politics. So, I won't get into the viewpoints of how I feel about the former or current administration. The post was just to highlight a new product of trading cards - torture.
Topps should maybe get on this and put these as inserts into their product next year. It's better than a Ferris Wheel, I guess.
So, yeah, I ordered my free 10-card booster pack. Shipping is free for the 10-pack of cards. They should arrive in 3-7 weeks.
