Some Old Shit

Slimy Dick Cheney, the Ur "chickenhawk", now armed with a new heart but still handicapped by a sclerotic brain, shriveled soul, and the moral compass of a sewer rat, says that President Obama has been an "unmitigated disaster to the country."

Well, if there's anything the Dark Lord Cheney has a working knowledge of, it is unmitigated disasters. He has been neck deep in so many of them:

Iraq war anyone? Well, at least Halliburton and Blackwater made out well. It would have been easier and cheaper to just give them the keys to the Treasury.

Energy policy created by oil companies? Sure, why not? We all know Global warming is a liberal conspiracy. Drill baby, drill!

US security leading up to September 11th? Sorry, more important matters to attend to. Gotta cut taxes on millionaires and billionaires.

If you go back far enough, you can even find Cheney cheer leading for Iran Contra. Killing innocent poor people for fun and profit is apparently his raison d'etre. Oh, not in person of course. Wouldn't want to get his hands dirty.

The child is father to the man as they say. As a young man, Cheney wasn't against the Viet Nam war--he was only against serving in the war. "Other priorities" is the phrase he used to justify his many student deferments.

To be clear, Dick Cheney is a war criminal. I don't believe in torture, but in his case I'd be willing to make an exception.

At this point, after such a distinguished career in public life, the most patriotic thing Dick Cheney could do would be to just shut up and hang himself.
