Torture apologist gets waterboarded - video

TPM finds the video of Mancow's waterboarding. You watch it happen and really, it doesn't look that bad. But he doesn't sound so macho now.

So who will be the next torture apologist to try to do better? As Zachary points out, it's useful to remember that Mancow knew they weren't going to hurt him and had medical help standing by in case anything went wrong. Neither was he fully secured to the bench. Imagine what it would be like if you can't move at all and can't ask them to stop as soon as it gets scary.

Update: Jesse Ventura challenges Hannity to be next.

thanks to alberto gonzalez, for years i've been convinced that if torture is good enough for iraqis, then torture is good enough for darth cheney.

btw, the mancow "waterboarding" may have just been more faked showmanship.

Good point 2cents.

I've heard that too Anon. It's clear in the video he got the wuss version anyway. They never covered his mouth.
