Chicago radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller decided he’d get himself waterboarded to prove the technique wasn’t torture.
It didn’t turn out that way. “Mancow,” in fact, lasted just six or seven seconds before crying foul.
…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.”
“Absolutely. I mean that’s drowning,” he added later. “It is the feeling of drowning.”
“If I knew it was gonna be this bad, I would not have done it,” he said.

Dick Cheney continues to undermine the morale of this great nation with his attacks on the administration:
“If I don’t speak out, then where do we find ourselves? … Then the critics have free run, and there isn’t anybody there on the other side to tell the truth,” Cheney said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday…
The former vice president has has repeatedly criticized Obama’s decision to release four memos from the Bush presidency that discuss tactics such as waterboarding.
Why shouldn’t you speak out, Dick? Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned from the eight Bush years, it’s that we are at war and that criticizing the President during wartime gives comfort to our enemies. Do you want the terrorists to win, Dick? Do you want them to be comforted during this war on terror? No? Then please enjoy this nice piping hot cup of STFU that you spent eight years warming up all nice and toasty.
We here at Bray New World look forward to your continued, patriotic silence until the war ends. You know, when there is no more terror.

“Get Aids and die, you pig,” the American radio “shock jock” told a purportedly homosexual man who once badmouthed his teeth.
He has plenty more vitriol to go around. Latinos “breed like rabbits” , Muslims “need deporting” and as for autistic children, “in 99 per cent of cases it’s a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out”.
Quite what he might say to Jacqui Smith if she called in is unclear, but it might just be: “Thank you very much”.
Shock jocks thrive on controversy and notoriety, and the Home Secretary must have exceeded Savage’s wildest dreams this week when she included him on a list of undesirables banned from entering Britain.
The 16 names were people who “fomented hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way” as to cause violence if they were allowed into the country, she told the BBC.
