Latest "torture": hard blankets

Back on the 16th we noted how "torture" is being redefined by "progressives;" here's precisely what we mean:

Manning related to me on December 19 2010 that his blankets are similar in weight and heft to lead aprons used in X-ray laboratories, and similar in texture to coarse and stiff carpet. He stated explicitly that the blankets are not soft in the least and expressed concern that he had to lie very still at night to avoid receiving carpet burns.

That would be Bradley Manning, accused of leaking classified documents to Wikileaks. He previously bitched about not having a soft pillow.

I suppose we can next prepare ourselves for his next complaints:

  • His toothbrush is only a "medium" bristle brush. It's "too harsh" on his gums.
  • His toilet paper is only a generic, one-ply brand and is "too harsh" on his anus.
  • His clothes are not washed using a fabric softener and hence are "too harsh" on his skin.
  • The walls of his cell are painted red and thus are "too harsh" on his eyes.
  • The soap he's been given to bathe lacks a moisturizer and hence is "too harsh" for his skin.

Somehow, the honorable PFC Manning made it through Basic Combat Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Maybe they have softer blankets at Fort Lost-in-the-Woods than places like Fort Jackson (another BCT base), but all of the ones I've seen are these coarse, olive drag rags that looked like they were bought new in 1962.

They're good enough for our honest soldiers!

I hate to say this, but I seriously think it would probably take more than one-ply toilet paper to hurt Manning's ass.
