Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), in hearings today with DOJ Inspector General Glenn Fine on the Justice Department role in torture:

I do see here things that seem to be fraternity boy pranks and hazing pranks that I do not — they might be unacceptable, but they certainly don’t fit into the category of torture, which is the word that’s been bandied around here.

As TPMmuckraker’s Kate Klonick reports, Rohrabacher managed to use some variation of the phrase “panties on the head” eight times in his 13-minute statement.
