After being waterboarded for 6 seconds wingnut shock jock Mancow admits it's "absolutely torture"

While Sean Hannity continues to punk out on his offer to be waterboarded for charity, Mancow took the plunge today:
Erich "Mancow" Muller, a Chicago-based conservative radio host, recently decided to silence critics of waterboarding once and for all. He would undergo the procedure himself, and then he would be able to confidently convince others that it is not, in fact, torture.

Or so he thought. Instead, Muller came out convinced.

"It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that's no joke," Mancow said. "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."

"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.' "

And remember, he knew he wasn't going to be killed.

On the other hand, he's a DJ, so taking away his coffee might constitute torture to him....

On the other hand, being forced to deal with the unending visage of Dick Cheney on TV might trump water-boarding. I mean, there is torture, and then there is torture!

But this is all moot. Isn't it clear to all that we did far worse than this? My guess is that there are lots of "suspects" who are now dead and buried. The water-boarded ones are the lucky ones....

Mancow has been a semi-permanent fixture on Fox News for years.

I'm wondering if Fox will bring him in to talk about how waterboarding isn't torture.

Waterboarding was, according to Hannity and the Fox posse, not illegal because it's not torture. I notice Hannity has yet to take Olbermans bet.

So, what is Sean Hannity waiting for?
Sean is just another big mouth right wing "celebrity" with no real substance or credibility.
