Even Conservatives Say It's Torture -- Raw Story's Waterboarding Story

This just in from Raw Story:

Conservative radio hosts gets waterboarded, and lasts six seconds before saying its torture

Before being waterboarded, the conservative talk show host had thought along the following lines:

"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.' "

After waterboarding having water put on his face, he said this:

"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."

Paging Dick Cheney! Rebuttal in the Elephant Aisle, and cleanup in Aisle 2!
