I'd pay to watch

I’ll put it to you this way, you give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I’ll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders.

That is an awesome statement Jesse. I do find it rather ironic that people like Cheney and Bush claim it isn't torture but wouldn't actually partake in a demonstration of it themselves.

Jesse "The Body" Ventura--body slams Cheney via Larry King.

Every time I hear Cheney talk about national security, or read what he has said, I wonder when some member of the media is going to raise the issue of a psychiatric evaluation. The guy hid in an underground bunker for most of the Bush years after 9/11. I think it's called "paranoid ideation" and it's common to Alzheimer's and other cognitive disorders. Of course Cheney believes that waterboarding is a necessity. He's anxious and terrified. He probably thinks President Obama is crazy for going to pro basketball games, out on dates with the First Lady and to lunch with the Vice President in public restaurants. What a contrast to the Bush years.

Two words: extraordinary rendition.

Yeah...Let's extraordinarily rendite him to Minneapolis-St.Paul.

Just don't let him tapdance in the men's room at the airport.

Problem is, Cheney would probably enjoy it. (A joke going around involves how Joe Biden was able to identify the room at the Naval Observatory where Cheney viewed waterboarding and other torture videos. It was the one with the semen stalactites hanging off the ceiling.)

Isn't it nice to have someone, anyone, who will say what is correct, the consequence be damned.

Agree with mp97303. Controlling language and the terms of a discussion are critical in these types of public debates. I wish that the media would stop referring to "harsh interrogation techniques" and other euphemisms for torture and just call it like it is.

Torture is torture is torture.
