Conservative radio host, Erich “Mancow” Muller, had himself waterboarded during his Friday morning broadcast. He gives in after four seconds and concedes, reluctantly, that this is undeniably torture. Is Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity next?
Chicago right-wing radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller said that Howard Dean was
“evil” and “should be kicked out of America.”
He decided to try and prove that waterboarding was no big deal – that it’s just
“water splashed on your face.”
Average waterboarding victims last 14 seconds. Mancow thought he could last 30 or even 60 seconds.
Mancow lasted about four seconds and 3 quarts of water.
“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.
