Saying its torture.
Note: The last thread on this had some great discussion in it, until it was trolled so badly that it was finally sent to the basement. To me, this is an important enough topic that it should not die just because a few people want to ruin it, so I am reposting it. I respectfully ask the mods to monitor this thread, and to be extremely Liberal with thread bans. Thanx in advance. Open discussion on this issue, which I feel is a very important one, is not going to die, just because a few troublemakers want it to. Whether an offender is on the left or the right, I will be reporting ALL posts which attempt to derail the discussion.
Not all Conservative talk show hosts are big sissies like Sean Hannity. Controversial Conservative host Erich Mancow is one of them. Unlike Hannity, he followed through on his pledge to be waterboarded, and the result? He lasted 6 seconds, and now believes that waterboarding IS torture.
Mancow has my respect, not only for practicing what he preaches, but also for honestly admitting that he was wrong. Too bad Hannity is not the same way. It seems that Mancow has more honesty in his little finger than Hannity has in his whole body.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."
I want to see what the hyperpartisans are going to say now. Are they going to accept this, or has Mancow just now magically become a Liberal jihadist who hates America?
