    Expert: Waterboarding is like drowning

    A senior Senator and renowned expert on drowning has weighed in (heavily) on the matter of waterboarding. He said:

    "[I]Waterboarding is a barbaric practice in which water is poured down the mouth and nose of a detainee, to simulate drowning. It's an ancient technique of tyrants. The prisoner is bound to an inclined board, feet raised and head slightly below the feet. Cellophane is wrapped over the prisoner's face and water is poured over him. [B]Unavoidably, the gag reflex kicks in, and a terrifying fear of drowning leads to an almost instant plea to bring the treatment to a halt. If it goes wrong, it can lead straight to terminal hypoxia. When done right, it is controlled death[/B][/I]."

    The expert was none other than Massachussett's own Ted Kennedy, who believes that running water over the face of a known terrorist is nowhere near as acceptable as pouring the contents of the Chappaquiddick river down the throat of a young innocent girl who happens to be stuck upside down in your car at the bottom of the river, while you swim away to your hotel and sleep off a bender for 10 hours before calling for "help" (of course your call for help is to your attorney cousin, asking him to take the rap for driving the car off the bridge himself, a request which he politely declines).

    So there you have it folks: Ted Kennedy, a man who has been vodkaboarding his liver for decades, with a straight face can stand up before congress and espouse on the torturous terrified fear someone has when faced with the prospect of drowning. Un-fu<king-believable. :eek:
