Waterboarding is torture -- Will Hannity prove it?

 Raw Story reports that conservative radio host Erich "Mancow" Muller subjected himself to 8 seconds of waterboarding before throwing in the towel,, cow.   "Mancow" reluctantly called the experience "absolutely torture."  If he had the chance for a do-over, he'd pass.

Now it is Sean Hannity's turn.  Not only does Hannity believe waterboarding isn't torture, but he has volunteered to experience it.  Pundits on the left, including MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Air America's Richard Greene, have decided to turn the yet-to-be-scheduled event into a fundraiser for a cause of Hannity's choosing--support of military families.  Olbermann has offered $1,000.00 per second that Hannity endures.  Richard Greene has been collecting pledges from listeners of Air America of $0.01, 0.10, 1.00, 10.00, and 100.00 per second.

If Sean Hannity keeps his word, we'll (at minimum) see thousands of dollars going to a worthy cause.  If Hannity bails on his promise to be waterboarded for charity, I have a feeling a lot of those dollars will make it there anyway.  If you want to, email your pledge
