on the prospect of waterboarding john ashcroft

Addressing a crowd yesterday, John Ashcroft said that he would submit himself to the form of torture known as waterboarding. It was a courageous statement and I admire him for having made it. If fact, it’s inspired me to make a courageous statement of my own. If called upon by my country to do so, I will personally waterboard John Ashcroft.

    I think you should form a local company to set up an online auction system for buying the right to waterboard ashcroft. Then contract other (in)famous persons and auction off the right to waterboard them too. The $$ you’d make on ashcroft alone would cover any start up costs.

    I’d be glad to start the bidding at $20.00…I’d love to waterboard the guy who couldn’t beat a dead man in a state lection, and then becomes Attorney general…

    While you’re doing that, I’ll beat Gonzales with a rubber hose.

    If, my country needs for me to.

    It’s true. Apparently Ashcroft has been bugging his own phone conversations and now suspects himself to be involved in terrorist activities somehow.

    If my country ever needs me to do anything I’m moving to Canada.

    It just crossed my mind that Ashcroft might be the kind of guy who would enjoy it, and suddenly I don’t find the idea so appealing.

    Whether he enjoys it or not, it would still make some of us feel better. I’m in.

    I don’t know what the big deal is. We “beer board” at the Kappa Alpha house all the time.
