Proof that even brilliant writers can suffer from moments of Bush Derangement Syndrome:
New York, NY (AHN) - In an interview with TIME magazine, horror fiction author Stephen King dropped a political bomb, suggesting that President George Bush's daughter Jenna be subjected to waterboarding, so she could give feedback to her father afterwards on whether or not the process actually is "a form of torture."
"Someone in the bush family should actually be waterboarded so they could report on it to George," King said, recalling his conversation with a person from the news program Nightline. "I said, I didn't think he would do it, but I suggested Jenna be waterboarded and then she could talk about whether or not she thought it was torture."
Used as an interrogation technique, waterboarding has been under harsh criticism, with people identifying it to be a form of torture. Government officials, however, have refused to acknowledge whether or not the method is considered torture under American law.
What a prick! I have no idea what King's political leanings are, but judging from this stupid statement, it's easy to guess that he's probably another limousine liberal. Because liberals just can't argue political points without making personal insults. Yet why be offended? After all free speech is part of what makes America so great. But can you imagine any public figure in Venezuela, what with El-Presidente-for-Life Hugo Chavez in charge, putting down a member of Chavez's family? Of course not. And why do liberals never suggest that FDR or Harry Truman should've sent their kids to war? Could it be because they were both Democrat Presidents? Of course. And hey, despite the fact that Jenna Bush's humanitarian service would beat the pants off of probably every single idiot liberal who's ever insulted her, what as long as she's the President's daughter, if you're a liberal she's fair game . . . because that's the sick playbook they go by.
