The Cheney Legacy
This guy just has no self-awareness.
And, our society ... Letting him run around, shouting his mouth off ...
It is almost the level of, say, giving Jeffrey Dahmer airtime on the Food Network.
You remember this;
On Tuesday, Cheney, serving in his role as president of the Senate, appeared in the chamber for a photo session. A chance meeting with Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (Vt.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, became an argument about Cheney's ties to Halliburton Co., an international energy services corporation, and President Bush's judicial nominees. The exchange ended when Cheney offered some crass advice.
"Fuck yourself," said the man who is a heartbeat from the presidency.
Not sure, in classic debating guidelines, that is acceptable, however, for Darth Vader, it is his proudest moment;
Cheney: Telling Leahy to ‘f*ck’ himself was ‘sort of the best thing I ever did.’
On Dennis Miller’s radio show today, Cheney suggested that his Leahy f-bomb was “the best thing” he had ever done:
MILLER: By the way, my, I also want to thank you, on the list of things I feel I should thank you for, almost kicking Patrick Leahy’s ass. Thank you very much.
MILLER: I love that move. One of my favorite stories. Muttering that.
CHENEY: You’d be surprised how many people liked that. That’s sort of the best thing I ever did.
I would have thought the mushroom clouds, or the never-happened Prague meeting lies would be up there ...
Or, shooting your friend in the face ...
Or, wait, wait ...
Exposing a covert CIA agent, for the purpose of getting back at her husband, for his exposing of your lies, would have grabbed the top spot ...
Your lackey, Little Scooter, almost went to jail for that one ...
The fact that you said this, with Dennis Miller, perhaps, and we'll have to check into it, the Has-Been Miller was simply auditioning new chimps to be his sidekick.
BarbinMD is shocked, that she actually agrees with Cheney;
Compared to the long list of heinous acts he perpetrated against this country, he's right. Being a total ass is the best thing he's ever done.
While Cheney can pat himself on the back, that using an invective was his greatest accomplishment, we, as a country, will have to wait a bit longer for ours.
That being, seeing this person, on trial, for his War Crimes.
I believe, when it's over, and he's carted off to prison, Cheney, and perhaps Miller, will be "surprised how many people liked that."
