Right-Winger Wilts on the Waterboard

Is waterboarding "torture"? One right-wing radio host in Chicago insisted it isn't, and was willing to back up his stand by getting waterboarded himself - with hilarious results.

As shown in this video, Erich "Mancow" Muller - after predicting he could tolerate the procedure for as long as a minute - comes up gasping and spluttering after exactly five seconds.

"It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that's no joke," Mancow says afterwards. "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. ... If I knew it was gonna be this bad, I would not have done it."

And Mancow, unlike the typical waterboarding victim, had the procedure performed by a friendly Marine sergeant with reporters, cameras and paramedics on hand.

Okay, we know there's no local angle to this, but it's so damn funny we couldn't resist passing it along. Anybody want to make a guess as to how long Dick Cheney would last?

(TOH to Kari Chisholm at Blue Oregon for spotting this.)

    I’m really sorry to break the bad news to them during this season of peace and goodwill, but after this week the right-wingers in Bend and vicinity won’t have The Wandering Eye to kick around anymore. The decision to stop writing this blog was my own, and it was prompted by several factors. More »
  • DADT, Gay-Bashing and the "Icky-ness" Factor

    • Dec 19, 2010
    For the past week or so, “Zeo” of the NW Republican blog has had his jock strap in a knot over the prospect of Congress repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule. To hear Zeo tell it, if DADT is repealed and gays are allowed to serve openly in the US military it will mean the end not only of our armed forces but of America, its economic system and civilization in general.
