From a political party overflowing with sociopaths and creeps, none other than Dick Cheney encapsulates to a greater degree what it is the Republican party has become. The blood of 4500 dead Americans and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis is on his hands. Lies and deception are his tools of trade.
Iraq was Dick Cheney’s war. Yet, the fabricated Benghazi ‘scandal’ is the worst incident he can recall.
War criminal and scumbag. Frankly.

The Iraq war was without a doubt Dick Cheney’s war. It was the war he wanted from the get-go and with the help of fellow neocons like Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, it is the war he got by way of lies and deception. There were no WMDs and Cheney knew it from the beginning.
The Iraq war was responsible for the death of 4,486 U.S. soldiers and well over 100,000 innocent Iraqi civilians…and it’s a war for which Dick Cheney has never apologized.
You might want to tune in to Rachel Maddow’s show tonight at 9 PM. She’s hosting a documentary special based on the 2007 book Hubris: Selling the Iraq War. The book by Michael Isikoff and David Corn is a great read and a revealing behind the scenes look at how a group of determined lying chickenhawk bastards conned a nation to go to war.
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.
“I read Dick Cheney’s book. I don’t want to ruin it for anybody, but in the final chapter he kills Harry Potter. If you want the book, in the bookstore go past the self-help section. It’s in the self-serving section.” –Jay Leno
“If you like light summer reading, Dick Cheney’s memoir came out at midnight . In Washington, D.C. this is like a ‘Harry Potter’ book coming out. There were long lines of bald old men outside bookstores, putting electrodes on each other’s nipples. Then they heard about Cheney’s book coming out.” –Craig Ferguson
“Reviewers say Cheney’s book shows a new sensitive side and reaches out to his former enemies. Ha ha! No, he goes after his enemies like they’re lawyers on a quail hunt. He blasted Rumsfeld and Colin Powell and even President Bush’s dog Barney. He says, ‘That dirty bastard was leaving dirt bombs all over the White House, and so was Barney.’” –Craig Ferguson
“Cheney says he wrote the memoir because friends encouraged him to do it. This guy has friends?” –David Letterman
“Dick ‘Kaboom’ Cheney has written a book, and he says he wouldn’t change anything. He feels strongly about this. He’d still invade the wrong country.” –David Letterman
“Dick Cheney’s new memoir will be a best seller. I think it’s published by ‘Simon & Shooter.’” –David Letterman
“Gadhafi is apparently on the run, though today he released a message congratulating Beyonce on her pregnancy.” –David Letterman
“Vice President Joe Biden has been in China meeting with the Chinese Vice President. One embarrassing moment during the trip when he met the Chinese Vice President’s children, he said, ‘What factory do you work in? Those are nice sneakers, did you make those?’” –Jay Leno
“Michele Bachmann is publishing her memoir. Why can’t we pray that away?” –David Letterman
“Hurricane Irene wasn’t that bad. In fact, it was downgraded to a tropical storm. Even our hurricanes are getting downgraded. Maybe Irene owed money to China too.” –Jay Leno
“Over 6 million people were evacuated from New Jersey ahead of the hurricane. And now, three of them have gone back.” –Jay Leno
“The rhetoric is heating up between Republicans Rick Perry and Mitt Romney. These two do not like each other. Perry has opposed many of Romney’s positions – but to be fair, so has Romney.” –Jay Leno
