Almost four years ago, Sean Hannity proclaimed that waterboarding is not torture and agreed to be waterboarded for charity. As he has yet to fulfill his promise, we petition Mr. Hannity to either follow through on his waterboarding or admit that waterboarding is, in fact, torture.

H. A. Goodman, United States1 year ago Comments: Forward to 0:55 of the following video and see Sean Hannity, Mr. "I'm a better American than you" squirm, and then agree, to being waterboarded: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/04/22/hannity-offers-to-be-wate_n_190354.html "Ollie North has and I ... choke... oh crap, I can't get out of the question... and I talked to him about it... "Would you consent to being waterboarded?" "Yes, sure." Hannity is a cowardly, egotistical, extreme right wing hack who thinks that being a chicken hawk overshadows his lack of military service or any real show of patriotism. All talk no action. In addition, while denigrating "liberals" he had no problem using the ACLU to help him when his loud mouth caused him problems in college, as this Wikipedia links illustrates: "Regarding his first show, Hannity has said, "I wasn't good at it. I was terrible." Hannity's weekly show on KCSB was canceled after less than a year by station managers. This was after two shows featuring the book The AIDS Coverup: The Real and Alarming Facts about AIDS by Gene Antonio; among other remarks made during the broadcast, Hannity told a lesbian caller "I feel sorry for your child." The station later reversed its decision to dismiss Hannity due in part to a campaign conducted by the Santa Barbara Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. Hannity decided against returning to KCSB." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sean_Hannity So here we have a college kid who never grew up, with no military service turned American patriot who also advocated against "cutting and running" in regards to leaving Iraq, as well as saying Bush "kept us safe" from terrorism, even though we seemed to have a terrorist, attack, from what I recall, called 9/11, under a Republican administration. Furthermore, while I've never been in the military, but I have enough good sense not to push for war without thinking of how it will affect the country in the long term, in addition to the understanding that if I ever did push for war, I'd make damn sure to do everything I could to advocate adequately funding veterans health care, something Paul Ryan and Republicans always cut in their budgets: http://www.disabledveterans.org/2011/04/16/republicans-seek-to-cut-1-3-million-veterans/ So now flag pin wearing Hannity is afraid of getting waterboarded, since he believes it's only an "enhanced" form of interrogation. At least Christopher Hitchens, a true journalist, was man enough to be waterboarded: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LPubUCJv58 I'm not saying Obama is perfect, or that liberals are perfect, but Hannity and all the other chicken hawk pundits always pushed for war and never talk about the consequences of conflict. Not one of them ever risked their lives for the country, not one of them have associated themselves with a veterans organization. So I agree with AKR44 below, great idea, Reddit should indeed start a petition. Shame the loud mouth into following through on his promise to open his mouth wide, have water poured into it until he feels like he's drowning, after all, it's only an "enhanced feeling", (and then it can stop, just like when Hitch was brave enough to experience waterboarding) and feel first hand what his grandiose statements truly mean.
