Man, Dick Cheney. How does that man sleep at night? How does he actually utter the words he does on tape, on television without going home and blowing his brains out like Vincent D'Onofrio in Full Metal Jacket. If you haven't seen at least excerpts of his interview with Wolf Blitzer, you can at least start with the parts used by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show and you can find them here.
I love the part where Wolf asks about Dick's lesbian daughter and how she's expecting a baby and how the core supporters of his ticket and party think such people (not white married heterosexuals with white color jobs and regular church attendance) should be burned at the stake and are the complete ruination of this country. What poppycock. Hell one of them wants to be the next president and "Put God back into this country." May the Lord save us. Of course Dick gets all indignant on Wolf and of course the whole point is aren't they all someone's daughter, aunt, sister, mother or relative? If we only just treated them like we're supposed to support them regardless if we agree or not?
How many times can a man be caught on tape saying things like, "We'll be greeted as liberators", and all the other manure he's slung as talking points to keep this country inside a war that wasn't right in the first place. We're adding 25,000 troops, but its an augmentation not an escalation. When a woman gets a breast implant, that's called augmentation when she increases their size. Its a reduction when she has the size reduced. So if its not "stay the course", Dick, is it a escalation or a reduction. Pick one you Dick head.
I can't believe that 99% of this country isn't ready to impeach the pair. I mean we impeached Clinton because he diddled another adult with a cigar and she sucked his dick. Yeah, he lied about it like any self respecting human. He got caught in an embarrassing position. So what. There are not many people that can say they haven't done something stupid and then lied about it. Heck, Jerry Ford who was a damn near God by comparison to either of these two (Clinton or the Shrubbery) used to trip all the time. Hell, Chevy Chase's entire career is based upon it and he's only damn lucky he was in that stupid golf movie Caddyshack. Without that he'd be asking if people want their meal "biggie" sized or not.
So, I hereby nominate Dick Cheney as lunatic of the century. The Chevy Chase of Vice Presidents. Imagine that he ran a company for a time? Can you imagine how screwed up Halliburton must be? What lies can they have swallowed? As the Wallace Shawn (Vizzini) character said in the fine film (for kids or adults) Princess Bride. "Inconceivable."
