Possibly The Most Horrible Pair On The Planet



So Dick "Dick" Cheney and his spawn have penned a screed, lapped up like bags of money by the Wall Street Journal. Forget the universal shame that anyone gives them a platform to say anything, anywhere, about anyone. Just take in (while sitting down) the monstrosity of their blackened (in Dick Dick's case, literally) hearts when they can write, evidently without a second's introspection, a sentence such as this:
“Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” The Cheneys wrote in their op-ed, published by the Wall Street Journal.
Really. They said it. Not -- if you can believe it -- in reference to George W. Bush, every one of whose adventures and policies left the our country, and others, in ruins.

And then, rising to peak rancidity, they wind up with this:
President Obama is on track to securing his legacy as the man who betrayed our past and squandered our freedom.”
One expects this sort of blinkered hyperbole and unfettered hatred from the Foxolimbeckians of the world. The willing ignorance, the deliberate mischaracterizations, the endless repetition of demonstrated falsehoods, of which their piece is full. But at one time this guy was vice fking president of the US. How can we have elected such a man? For that matter, how can a would-be president have selected Sarah Palin, a Cheney clone only dumber, to be his running mate?

Don't you think a person elevated to that level of political hierarchy might think twice before spewing such rhetoric? Consider it a level of discourse not exactly healthy for the common weal? Dick Cheney made his torture-loving evilness clear when he was in office. Hard as it is to imagine, he's become even more so in his dotterage. And daughterage. He should be banned from all airwaves, have a dirty sock stuffed in his mouth, and be left on the side of a road. In Baghdad.

I don't particularly like the guy.
