First Sean Hannity called waterboarding to “dunking somebody’s head in water“. Then Charles Grodin went on Hannity’s show and asked him (since Hannity claimed that waterboarding was such a benign thing) would he be waterboarded? Hannity said yes (several times) and said he would do it for charity. Grodin immediately called his bluff and asked Hannity what he was doing the following Sunday.
Then Keith Olbermann got into the act, offering $1000 for every second that Hannity endured waterboarding, and twice that if afterwards he agreed that waterboarding was torture. But in this latest show, Olbermann took the challenge one step further:
Olbermann has found a SERE instructor who not only is willing to waterboard Hannity, but brags:
My point is quite simple: If Sean Hannity allows me to waterboard him, based on the criteria and the guidelines that have come out in these memos, I’m willing to bet that I will be able to coerce Sean Hannity. In fact, I’m even willing to bet that I can get Sean Hannity to say that Countdown with Keith Olbermann is his favorite show.
The gauntlet has been thrown!
