Keith Olbermann: Conservative Radio Host "Mancow" Muller Waterboarded! Says It's ABSOLUTLY TORTURE!

by Dee Newman

It has been nearly a month since the right-wing torture-apologist for Fox News, Sean Hannity, agreed to be waterboarded for charity, claiming “it is not torture.”

Despite the fact that Keith Olbermann from MSNBC’s Countdown offered to give $1000 to a charity for our troops for every second Hannity lasted, the cowardly conservative refused to live up to his feign bravado.

In Hannity’s absence, Chicago radio host, Erich "Mancow" Muller, decided he would prove that waterboardering wasn't torture.

As you will see from the video below, it did not quite turn out the way “Mancow” had expected. In fact, he lasted no more than six or seven seconds, declaring that it was “worse than I thought it would be, and that's no joke!"

He went on to tell his 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: [it's] ABSOLUTELY TORTURE!"

Last night on Countdown, Keith Olbermann told his audience:

Mancow Muller had the guts to put his mouth where his mouth was, and the guts to admit he was dead wrong. As you saw, he not only said it is torture, but that he had nearly drowned as a boy, and it is drowning, and that he would have admitted to anything to make it stop.

So the offer to the coward Hannity — a thousand dollars a second he lasted on the waterboard — is withdrawn.

And to Mr. Muller, whose station’s publicity person contacted us yesterday saying she’d heard I’d offered ten thousand dollars to anybody who would do what he did –

You got it. Ten thousand dollars to the military-families charity of the man who did the waterboarding, Veterans Of Valor.

As to Hannity, you are now unnecessary.

Dee, I just discovered your web site and am deeply touched by your commitment to a humane, non-violent world with justice for all beings. I share those ideals completely. The brutality of the world we live in continues to shock me. I have watched in amazement as the Bush Administration has manipulated the public,using the 9/11 tragedy to cow the public and Congress into giving up our constitutional rights without a whimper. The press has been a willing partner in this travesty. I appreciate your efforts to expose the press and their shameful cooperation with a criminal regime. I am curious about your opinion on 9/11. There seems to be so much evidence to indicate that it was an inside job and yet the press, left, right and center, willfully ignore this evidence and ridicule the thoughtful reasoning of people like Dr. David Griffin as lunatic conspiracy theorists. It seems to me that the press is simply following the marching orders of the government and participating in a cover-up.

I agree with Dianne Walter`s comments regarding the changes that have affected all of us after 9-11. It is a wonder that government has not done more to verify what seems to be some very questionable evidence portrayed by the 9-11 Commission. How did you find out about my Tales of the little people?
