You know, I wish Iraq would be over, if only so I can stop finding out that every single person who’s work I’ve ever enjoyed is a total fucking retard.
So I said something to the Nightlineguy about waterboarding, and if the Bush administration didn’t think it was torture, they ought to do some personal investigation. Someone in the Bush family should actually be waterboarded so they could report on it to George. 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.
This is so tired. Does Stephen King think “Bush” is just rounding up random Arabs and waterboarding them just for the fuck of it? If you disagree with Iraq, fine. I can deal with that. But to say something like this, is just ignorant and naive. Clearly, Stephen King has the mind of a child, which is great if you’re writing spooky stories, but shut yer pie-hole in matters that are obviously beyond your level of comprehension.
Here’s where he gives his “I’m informed” bona fides:
So you’re a news junkie?
I got hooked by my wife. You’d be surprised, or maybe you wouldn’t be surprised, being that I’m around John Mellancamp a lot — he and I are doing this play. But it’s the news 24-7. Always on.
He’s around John Couger a lot. News 24/7. Doing a play. Well, there ya go. Informed.
The “being around John Couger a lot” part pretty much negates anything said after it.
