    Default Keith Olbermann calls Hannity's bluff: 1000 bucks for every second of waterboarding

    MSNBC's Keith Olbermann announced on Thursday that he is willing to pay $1,000 to charity for every second that Fox News anchor Sean Hannity undergoes waterboarding torture.

    As HuffPost noted yesterday, Hannity was prodded by actor Charles Grodin into agreeing to subject himself to waterboarding to benefit a charity for the families of U.S. soldiers.

    On MSNBC tonight, Olbermann called on Hannity to stay true to his word, and argued the benefit of having the arch-conservative pundit tortured would be that he might finally recognize the "deadly seriousness" of the debate over detainee treatment.

    "What a breakthrough it would be if, by having reality literally forced upon him, a buffoon like Hannity were to realize the deadly seriousness of this," Olbermann said. "The searing truth: that the moment of torture automatically makes the presumed bad guy recipient the victim, and makes the torturer into the evildoer."

    From there, Olbermann laid out his offer: "For every second you last, a thousand dollars -- live or on tape, provided other networks' cameras are there. A thousand dollars a second, Sean, because this is no game. This is serious stuff. Put your money where your mouth is, and your nose. Oh, and I'll double it when you admit you feared for your life, when you admit the horrible truth -- waterboarding, the symbol of the last administration, is torture." Olbermann Calls Hannity's Bluff: $1000 For Every Second Of Waterboarding (VIDEO)

    I want to see video of this. I would kill to see video of Hannity fearing for his sad, pathetic existence.

    Hannity is an asshole.

    I'm surprised Keith didn't make him the worst person in the woooorld last name.

    Wait, Bill O the Clown got it. (as usual).

    A second is not long enough. I watched this guy do it and he lasted about 10 minutes.

    I think a lot of people would line up to donate cash to see Hannity get waterboarded.

    I damn sure wouldn't do it for a nanosecond. I don't need to experience it to know that feeling like you're drowning would fucking suck.

    Yeah, I've heard that before, too. It might be right at the end after the initial panic stage, but that panic part would be awful.

    It would be for me too. I just don't think it's a very long process. I think it happens rather quickly.

    I was talking about the actual act of drowning, not waterboarding.

    Ha ha ha - money where your mouth is, priceless. It's so apparent Hannity was the fat ass Cartman in everybody's class or school when he was little. Watch all the wingnuts step up to stick up for him but that turd won't do it. Shit he probably cries when he gets a hangnail and calls his mommy for cheesypuffs and sympathy. He'll talk all around it and call Olbermann and MSNBC all types of names without doing jack.

    someone should abduct him and forcibly waterboard him, and record it.

    Hey, it's not illegal. It's not kidnapping, it's 'enhanced travel'.

    He'd help raise a lot of money for charity who WOULDN'T like to see it?

    I do have to say I'm thrilled that it seems McCain is speaking up against this, he knows torture first hand.
