Tricky Dick



Gee, here's a shock.

McClatchy Newspapers: Cheney's Speech Contained Omissions, Exaggerations, Misstatements/5.21.09

A good rule of thumb these days: If it's coming from the right and it sounds like it proves their case, it's probably bullshit.

He's de divil incarnate, I tells ya!

Honestly, he's making Bush appear all the more statesmanlike, with his "Obama deserves my silence" (as I've heard tell). And I ain't no fan of no Bush.

Goes to show you how much the previous administration had clung to the "you are guilty if you are arrested" school of thought, and, yet now, they are doing their damndest to hid behind the law... ironic, I think

Is it just me or has he become more loquacious since january? I don't seem to recall him speaking publicly as much in eight years has he has since the new administration took office.

Neimoidian: "Is that... legal?"
Cheney: "I will MAKE it legal."

Who is in charge of the GOP?

Does this mean that McClatchy pap's will be changing their endorsements?

I'm with Elessa. He was basically in hiding for eight years, pulling the puppet strings on Bush from some underground lair. Now he's everywhere! He needs to go back into hiding.

Benoit from Ottawa said...

Elessa & al.: Jon Stewart said roughly the same thing, a few days back.

So it must be true.

(As for the GOP, it's literally beside itself: smashed by defeat, the good folk are splintered and it's a free for all.)

As much as it turns my stomach (and it sure does), at this point I'm tempted to say let him keep talking. I hope he ends up exposing himself or making a total ass out of himself to the point where no one - not even the most ass-backwards right-winger - can deny he is evil and needs to banished.
