Who Says Stephen King is Irrelevant?

Stephen-King.jpgI haven’t appreciated a Stephen King novel in over a decade, and his back-page column in Entertainment Weekly somehow manages to be even more vapid and uninteresting as the rest of the magazine, but by God, Stephen King was, is, and always will be one cool motherfucker, as suggested by some of the things he said in an interview with Time magazine, including this glorious bit:

So I said something to the ‘Nightline’ guy 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.

Sadly, she’s such a Stepford daughter, I doubt Jenna would ever break a sweat. She’d just plug-in, recharge her batteries, and continue smiling without batting an eyelash.
