A month after Sean Hannity said he would be waterboarded to show his support for our troops, Erich “Mancow” Muller took up the challenge. Mancow called it off after six seconds and stated, emphatically, that waterboarding is “absolutely torture.” He made an appearance on Countown with Keith Olbermann and said that it’s worse than drowning and that he would have said anything to make it stop, thus proving that it’s an unreliable method of obtaining accurate information.
After the initial offer to be waterboarded, after Mancow “manned up” and took the challenge, and after Mancow declared that it is, in fact, torture, Sean Hannity still insists that it’s not. He called Mancow and told him, “It’s still not torture.” Mancow replied, “Sean, it is torture.”
Mancow also praised Olbermann and called him a “stand up guy” for donating $10,000 to the Veterans of Valor.
