Mancow Gets Waterboarded and Says It’s Torture

Radio host Erich Muller or “Mancow” actually did what Sean Hannity has been threatening to do – get waterboarded to prove a point. Err, their point. Which is that waterboarding isn’t torture. It’s just water.

From The Raw Story:

“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.”

Do you think the Inquisition had this debate? “The rack hurts, sure – but it gave us valuable intelligence about heretics.”
