About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Maybe the member countries of the United Nations Human Rights Council could do something to help? Oh wait, Saudi Arabia is already a member, so they’re probably already doing the best they can.

    They should just refer to them as harsh prison discipline techniques and all will fine. Then they officially will be like the USA and not engage in torture.
