(Newser) – Right-wing mouth Sean Hannity, who chickened out on a dare to be waterboarded for charity, still claims the procedure is not torture, says conservative shock jock Erich "Mancow" Muller, who discovered firsthand it "absolutely" is. Mancow again described his experience being waterboarded to Keith Olbermann last night as "horrific," despite Hannity's phonecall afterward reiterating his claim that it's still not torture.

Mancow called Olbermann a "stand up guy" for agreeing to donate $10,000 to a charity benefiting veterans after Mancow was waterboarded—the same offer he had extended to Hannity. (Read more Sean Hannity stories.)
