Believe Me, It's Torture

    Chris Hitchens, former waterboarding advocate, cannot be accused of not suffering for his craft. He's changed his mind about it after getting waterboarded and making a video of his experience.

    Well, we're only doing it to terrorists or people we think might be terrorists, so it's OK.

    And, suddenly, Hitchens is now credible with the left because he says something they agree with.

    Do you think waterboarding is torture?

    No, he still doesn't have credibility with me.

    The people here sympathize with cop killers so should we really be surprised?

    It was also torture reading Hitchens's personal account of getting his nuts waxed during a makeover session a few months back.

    Wasn't there a TV guy who went through waterboarding as well like a year ago, with similar traumatic results.

    Your skill for the non sequitor is astounding. :D

    You guys are hitting the right notes, but you're still forgetting the ellipses. Those are very important.

    Hitchens is still a tool.

    Nope, he acts just like a typical righty: he switched positions on an issue as soon as it affected him directly (or when he experienced it in this case).
