Into the swamp

Via Andrew Sullivan, who has been agonising over whether Bush is a war criminal (which he almost certainly is of course, though we shant expect any consequences to follow), I see that this National Review editorial says the US Supreme Court

acknowledges no limits on its powers — whether imposed by Congress or by the English language, which it had to torture in order to construe the DTA’s unambiguous limitation of its jurisdiction as an invitation to meddle.

So - "acknowledges no limits on its powers"; "torture". This comes as rather a blow to those of us who thought the old cliche about how Americans don't understand irony was a bit ridiculous.
