(Newser) – A Chicago radio host submitted himself to a waterboarding demonstration to prove it isn’t torture, but it didn’t work out that way, NBC affiliate WMAQ-TV reports. “Way worse than I thought it would be, and that’s no joke,” Erich “Mancow” Muller said. “I don’t want to say this: absolutely torture.” The Marine who administered the technique said the average person lasts 14 seconds. Mancow lasted 6.

This moron Mancow had the hubris to believe his own bullshit and go under the process himself. It was bullshit macho bravado- not a decision to repent his stupid ways. Having bashed him for the reasons he did this, I do applaud him for admitting he was wrong. Even if he didn't do that, he had more guts than Hannity ever will to actually go through with it. And while stupidity may equal guts in this particular instance, he still walked the walk. Hannity is a pussy piece of shit who will never do that.

I could have sworn hannity said he would do this...where is he? And I've been waterboarded. It's a terrible experience. I lasted 25 seconds.
