Conservative talk show host gets waterboarded
Perhaps one of the most disturbing aspects of the war on terror is the fact the United States has admitted it uses waterboarding as an interrogation technique. While all the experts agree that the practice is indeed torture, it hasn’t prevented conservative mouthpieces from declaring ‘throwing a little water’ on someone’s face is a justifiable practice to prevent terrorism. You may recall Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded a total of about 180 times. Well, conservative talk show Mancow decided to try out waterboarding to see if it was indeed torture. The average person lasts about 14 seconds. Mancow lasted only half of that.
I’ll give him props for going through with this. It’s something very few conservatives who support waterboarding are willing to do. Mancow had to admit the technique really is torture; your body thinks it’s drowning, and naturally starts to panic and suffocate. This is precisely why it’s so damn horrible. No society that praises themselves for their observance to the spirit of the law can condone such actions. America was not founded on tyrannical principles, and this waterboarding travesty is a legacy of shame that will carry on for many generations. Now all we need to do is try it one more time with Dick Cheney and see how he feels about it.
