Good, Clean, Torture-Themed Fun

This little example of what passes for good-natured ribbing in DC from the Alfalfa Dinner really sticks out to me:

Once inside the banquet hall, which is always off-limits to the media, the Alfalfans took turns trying to crack each other up. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) — the club’s outgoing president — noted that former vice president Richard B. Cheney injured himself while moving into his new home, according to a source inside the dinner.

“I had no idea waterboards were so heavy,” Lieberman quipped.

Get it?! It’s funny because they’re both objectively pro-war crimes. LOL.
