The vice president was asked on Tuesday by a conservative radio host from Fargo, North Dakota: "Would you agree a dunk in water is a no-brainer if it can save lives?"
"Well, it's a no-brainer for me," replied Cheney as part of a campaign by Republicans to keep national security on the minds of voters ahead of November 7 congressional elections.
Vice President Dick Cheney said on Friday he was not referring to "water boarding" or any interrogation technique in a radio interview, after critics accused him of endorsing simulated drowning by agreeing that a "dunk in water" for terrorism suspects might be useful.
GOI: This is like Cheney saying that he never met John Edwards during the 2004 campaign when later video tape revealed that he was lying.
Cheney says that a dunk in water to "save lives" isn't water boarding??? What is he refering to then??? Bobbing for apples to raise money to save the life of some unfortunate soul stricken with cancer?!! Somehow I don't think so.
The only "no brainer" DICK "Montgomery Burns" Cheney is that YOU have no brain!! (and no heart either. And no, the paper heart that Lynne cut out for you and hung in your chest cavity doesn't count).
