This is just crazy talk by Rudy:

I do know a lot about intensive questioning and intensive questioning techniques. … Now, intensive questioning works. If I didn’t use intensive questioning, there would be a lot of mafia guys running around New York right now and crime would be a lot higher in New York than it is. Intensive question has to be used.

What the f*&k is he talking about? Did he round up the local mob guys with his BFF---Bernie Kerik (we all make mistakes, right?) and break out the rubber hoses? I was saddened when McCain signed on to that monstrous Military Commissions Act, but he slams Rudy over his demented waterboarding statements.

Boston:

When someone says waterboarding is similar to harsh interrogation techniques used against the mafia in New York City, they do not have enough experience to lead our military,” McCain said Sunday night at a town-hall meeting here.

Digby:

Decent people don't have to have been in the service or tortured themselves to know it's wrong. McCain is a bloodthirsty right wing warmonger. But he's not an outright sadist. That is the range of what passes for morality among the GOP candidates. And by the way, he's losing because of it.

Sadism sells!
