Keith Olbermann offers Sean Hannity $1000 per second to be waterboarded

Keith Olbermann challenges Sean Hannity, offering money to put water where his mouth is. Keith Olbermann issued this challenge to Sean Hannity after defiant statements he made on his program, volunteering to be waterboarded in support of "charity and families of the troops". Keith welcomes Lawrence O'Donnell, political analyst and Writer/Producer of 'The West Wing' to talk about Hannity's perplexing boast.

Hannity volunteers to be waterboarded
--snippet of Sean Hannity's show played--
CHARLES GRODIN (actor): So you're for torture right?
SEAN HANNITY: I am for enhanced interrogations, I don't believe waterboarding is torture.
GRODIN: So you don't believe its torture. Have you ever been waterboarded?
HANNITY: No. But Ollie North has and I talked to him about it.
GRODIN: Would you consent to be waterboarded so we can get the truth out of you?
HANNITY: Yeah. Sure. I'll do it for charity. I'll let you do it. I'll do it for the troops families

KEITH OLBERMANN: Ah yes another conservative talking big and living small. They're not taking this seriously and they are talking out of their backsides. What a breakthrough it would be if by having reality literally forced upon him, a buffoon like Hannity were to realise the deadly seriousness of this. The searing truth that moment of torture automatically makes the presumed bad guy recipient - the victim. And makes the torturer into the evil-doer. If Hannity could suddenly have this epiphany and involuntarily reveal it to those who somehow take him seriously. He'll do it for charity, for the troops families? I'll take you up on that Sean. For a every second you last, a $1000... A $1000 a second because this is no game...
Once again pro-wrestling has been there and done that. Watch "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase naming his price to get some water action of his own. Even I can't believe I found this one:
