McCain Jokes About 'Waterboarding' John Kerry

During a press conference Tuesday discussing Syria, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) said he spoke with Senator John Kerry (D-MA) this morning and looks forward to "interrogating" the nominee for Secretary of State at his confirmation hearing next week, joking that "we will bring back, for the only time, waterboarding to get the truth out."

McCain was joking, of course, (Recall this "hilarious" moment in 2007?) but I hope Senator Kerry takes some security along with him to the confirmation hearing.
