Is Waterboarding Torture or is Mancow Just a Wuss?


More adventures in Celebrity Waterboarding: Chicago radio shock jock Mancow Muller volunteered to take on the critics and allowed Marine Sgt. Klay South to waterboard him on the air last Friday May 22.

Mancow lasted all of eight seconds, afterwards loudly and repeatedly proclaiming that waterboarding is "absolutely torture."

America probably shouldn't take a guy called Mancow as the final word on the subject, but Katie Couric, Brian Williams, Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly don't seem to be volunteering to give it a try.

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann got very excited and once again baited Fox News' Sean Hannity, who hasn't followed up on an alleged offer to be waterboarded for charity. Olbermann has instead donated $10K to Veterans of Valor, a charity run by the Marine who poured the water on Mancow.

Here's hoping the debate continues. I'm sure that Eminem or that guy who plays Captain Kirk will have something to add to our national discussion.
