Rick Santorum: John “Tiger Cage” McCain Doesn’t Understand How War Prisoners Are Interrogated

You know, there are times when I feel bad that the internet has turned the name “Santorum” into the description of the byproduct of a deviant sex act.  Then I remember that Rick Santorum is a total tool who torpedoed Pat Toomey’s first race for the Senate in favor of supporting Arlen Specter.

Then I think back on all the other dumb things he’s said and done in and out of office.

Then I read this.

Speaking on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Santorum, the presidential hopeful and former Pennsylvania senator, says McCain is misguided in his stance against the enhanced interrogation techniques sanctioned during the Bush administration but discontinued by Obama’s White House, which has labeled them torture.

“Everything I’ve read shows that we would not have gotten this information as to who this man was if it had not been gotten information from people who were subject to enhanced interrogation,” Santorum said, referring to the courier that led Americans to Osama bin Laden. “And so this idea that we didn’t ask that question while Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was being waterboarded, he doesn’t understand how enhanced interrogation works. I mean, you break somebody, and after they’re broken, they become cooperative.”

I’m no huge fan of John McCain, but come on.  Every idiot on the planet knows what John McCain went through in Viet Nam.  Plus, every idiot on the planet knows that John McCain admitted to haven being “broken” by the interrogators.

Well, every idiot but one.
