Chicago radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller decided he’d get himself waterboarded to prove the technique wasn’t torture.
It didn’t turn out that way. “Mancow,” in fact, lasted just six or seven seconds before crying foul. …
“I wanted to prove it wasn’t torture,” Mancow said. “They cut off our heads, we put water on their face…I got voted to do this but I really thought ‘I’m going to laugh this off.’ “
The upshot? “It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that’s no joke,” Mancow told listeners. “It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back…It was instantaneous…and I don’t want to say this: absolutely torture.”
“Absolutely. I mean that’s drowning,” he added later. “It is the feeling of drowning.”
“If I knew it was gonna be this bad, I would not have done it,” he said.

OK, let’s to Sean Hannity next!!
It’s kinda SAD that the right has taken up the banner of torture.
I saw Pat Robertson on TV yesterday and he was defending Dick Cheney’s torture stance.
I have always respected Robertson as a religious leader, but he has lost his spiritual compass when he condones such treatment.
What happened to family values?
Who would Jesus torture?
Thank you, christianliberal!!! This is key to the conscience of America — the heart of what’s going so terribly wrong!
