Those of you familiar with my blog know that from time to time I like to poke fun at Rethuglicans like Sarah Palin, George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck because of their utter stupidity, their senseless need to pervert the truth to fit their twisted right-wing ideology and their tenuous grasp on reality.
But there are plenty of others that are just as deserving of our contempt and, at the risk of being targeted by one of his Blackwater death squads, I would like to discuss one of them - our less-than-ethical former Vice President, Dick Cheney.
Who is Dick Cheney? He is the dark embodiment of soul-less evil that is hell bent on ruling the world.
Here's what I don't understand though. How can a man who's already been repeatedly exposed as a compulsive liar, a secrecy nut and a maniacal twit hell-bent on rewriting history, have the slightest bit of relevance and credibility in today's political forum? I mean, are we supposed to listen to his advice after he had eight years and spent over a trillion dollars on just the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with no success? Is anyone really blind enough to listen to his psycho counsel after his years of repeated failures?
I'm sure much of this political posturing of his is just an excuse to distract the public from investigating the serious allegations being leveled at him and Bush with regards to their gross mishandling of pretty much everything during their eight years in office and Cheney's refusal to comply with the law and submit his files to the authorities for scrutiny citing yet another lie as his excuse:
"No no, that doesn't apply to me. As the vice-president, I technically belong to neither the executive NOR the legislative branch."
While we wait for Cheney to finish rewriting the Constitution to make all of his crimes and activities legal again, and apparently introduce himself as the sole member of a new 4th branch of government, let's say a little prayer that America is hopefully done with this power hungry narcissist. Our country deserves a chance to rise above the ashes of economic devastation that he and his fellow Repukelicans have created for us.
Here are several funny quotes about Cheney by late-night television hosts I hope you enjoy:

"Did you see Cheney the other day? He threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals home game. It was low and in the dirt -- kind of like his approval rating....Whose idea was it to use Cheney to throw out the first pitch? I mean, this guy's not known for his aim." -- Jay Leno

"Dick Cheney was on the news this week, and he said that it would be a mistake for the Republicans to moderate their policies. He said they should remain true to their core principles: gay bashing, war profiteering and torture." -- Bill Maher
"Dick Cheney, the former vice president, said that President Obama went too far with the jokes at the correspondents' dinner. By too far, does Cheney mean like waterboarding a guy 183 times?" -- David Letterman
