Maybe it’s the perspective of having just returned from Geneva, where I had to deal with Ahmadinejad, only to find the American media engaged in an absurd and meretricious debate about torture (led by the NYT, of course), but I have this to say:

I would rather be waterboarded than spend ten minutes with Nancy Pelosi. The lying harridan who happens to be our Speaker of the House is one of the most tedious women on the planet.

Regarding waterboarding, Cliff May had interesting post, if you haven’t seen it.
