Quickie: And the Award for Imaginative and Unexpected Charles Manson References Goes To...

...Jesse Ventura:

KING: You were a Navy SEAL.

VENTURA: That’s right. I was water boarded, so I know — at SERE School, Survival Escape Resistance Evasion. It was a required school you had to go to prior to going into the combat zone, which in my era was Vietnam. All of us had to go there. We were all, in essence — every one of us was water boarded. It is torture.

KING: What was it like?

VENTURA: It’s drowning. It gives you the complete sensation that you are drowning. It is no good, because you — 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.


Political Piggy indeed.

I think water boarding is abhorrent. And yet in Cheney's case...if only.

Snad said...

It's because he says things like this that made me vote for Jesse when I lived in Minnesota.

Put into context, The Body went out 5 nights a week and got the crap beat out of him. Pro Wrestling, scripted and planned as it is, takes a major toll on the body and hurts, alot. The Body liked that, but says waterboarding IS torture.

Just give me the board.

I bet Cheney wouldn't last 5 minutes of waterboarding, maybe even just 1 before he'd admit to the manson murders.

Loved how Jessie called Cheney a coward who got 5 deferrments. 5 may even be the record, could it be?

If you listen to Cheney speak, he gasps between sentences as if he's got advanced emphysema.
With four major heart attacks already racked up, I imagine just tying him to an inclined board would be enough to bring on another doozie.
Adding a little water would blow that old ticker right out of his chest.

I'm with Zipdrive--no way that Cheney would survive even the sight of the water bucket before crumbling to the ground in a heap of ticking metal parts, bile, and flab.

Sue J said...

I'm with Zipdrive on just using the board ...

If Obama would sign Ventura and Dick to a waterboarding deal on Pay Per View, he could evaporate the budget deficit in one day.
I'd pony up $250 to watch that, easy.
