And so it went Friday morning when WLS radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller decided to subject himself to the controversial practice of waterboarding live on his show.
Mancow decided to tackle the divisive issue head on — actually it was head down, while restrained and reclining.
“I want to find out if it’s torture,” Mancow told his listeners Friday morning, adding that he hoped his on-air test would help prove that waterboarding did not, in fact, constitute torture.

It’s kinda SAD that the right has taken up the banner of torture.
I saw Pat Robertson on TV yesterday and he was defending Dick Cheney’s torture stance.
I have always respected Robertson as a religious leader, but he has lost his spiritual compass when he condones such treatment.

christianliberal, couldn’t agree more with you. It boggles my mind that so-called Christians could advocate for torture! I posted two pieces both titled, “Who would Jesus torture?” a few years ago.
