Chicago’s right wing radio talk show personality Erich “Mancow” Muller had spoken out in public in favor of waterboarding. He didn’t think it was torture. The strength of his convictions was strong. He declared that he was willing to be waterboarded himself, to prove that it wasn’t torture.
This morning, Muller went through the test. He had it better than the prisoners waterboarded by the CIA and the U.S. military. He was allowed to stop the waterboarding when he couldn’t take it any more.
Muller lasted less than 10 seconds. Now that he’s experienced waterboarding himself, he says that it’s “absolutely torture”.
