Wednesday Why-I-Love-The-Weekly-World-News Blogging

Dubya sure does love his waterboarding:

George W. Bush reveals in his memoir, Decision Points, that he personally waterboarded VP Dick Cheney.


“Dick was so in favor of waterboarding, that I thought he should experience himself to see what it was like.  He thought it was a very effective tool.”  Bush went on to say that after waterboarding Cheney as a “test” he used it on two other occasion to get the Vice President to keep his mouth shut on certain issues.

“Dick was making me look bad a few times with the press. He was too arrogant.  So, I had to waterboard him to get him to shut his pie hole!”


Dick Cheney, who hasn’t read Bush’s book yet, said that “Bush went a bit overboard with the waterboard stuff.  He got a little waterboard crazy.  He wanted everybody waterboarded, Andy Card, Karl Rove… one day he even wanted Laura waterboarded.  I’m sure he’s waterboarding his staff in Crawford to keep them in line.”

Bush said that when he sees Cheney next month at a conservative conference in New Orleans, ‘I’d love to take an hour or so and waterboard Dick again.  I had so much fun waterboarding Dick.  It was a hoot!”

Bush said that he, personally, was never waterboarded, but “if I ever do anything wrong, I wouldn’t mind.  But I’ve never done anything wrong.  I have no regrets.”

I just hope there aren’t any photos of Dick Cheney naked, wearing nothing but a hood and some electrodes…

Something For CT To Look Forward To

Imagine having to choose between Linda McMahon and Joe Lieberman.

Would Lieberman try to win the Democratic nomination (unlikely the outcome would be any better than last time), or would he just go straight to an independent run again?  As an added bit of fun, the Connecticut For Lieberman Party has pretty much been taken over by people who aren’t exactly Lieberman fans, so he’d have to come up with a new imaginary party banner to run under.

My fondest hope is that the CFL actually runs ads against him.  What would be sweeter than seeing 27 seconds of Lieberman-bashing followed by “This message has been paid for by the Connecticut For Lieberman Party”?
