Dick Cheney, in one of his rare moments of honesty, had this to say about John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as his VP choice.
I think that was a mistake. Is this person capable of being president of the United States?
I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her. I know her. … Attractive candidate. But based on her background — she’d only been governor for, what, two years — I don’t think she passed that test … of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.
Well aside from the fact that the above observation was obvious four years ago to most people possessing a sound mind, they were spoken by a man whom many would argue was the worse and most corrupt VP the U.S. has ever known. How nice if Cheney would also admit that George W. Bush was not qualified to be President, but don’t hold your breath waiting for Dick to utter those words. It was exactly the fact that Bush was an incompetent, know-nothing moron that allowed Cheney to play the role of puppeteer for those eight, long disastrous years. An incompetent jackass for President suited Cheney well in 2001. Not so much as a VP choice in 2008 when he was no longer in control.
Palin’s problem, of course, was not that she had been governor for a mere two years. It was that she was, and is, an ignoramus. It was this that made her unsuitable for the VP position…or just about any other position I can think of. But you already knew this.
Cheney’s daughter, Liz, threw in her two cents and wins the award for most brazen, biased crapola of the week.
Puke time. And if you need another reason for ignoring just about anything the Cheneys have to say about anything, here are Dick Cheney’s words from September 2008.
…there’s no reason why Sarah Palin can’t be a successful vice president in a McCain administration.
They’re little more than idiotic, parading clowns, the entire bunch of them. Hey Liz, here’s what the rest of us think about your dad.
