It's too bad the real LOL President is still in the White House.

Wednesday, June 06, 2007

Quote of the day:

Traditionally the Vice-Presidency has been home to the dim but able career politician whose regional origin or personal contacts/machinery have been electorally useful to the ticket. We’ve had killers (Burr), criminals (Agnew), generically corrupt politicos (Colfax), energetic bullshit artists (TR), morally abject fucktards (Van Buren), and irrascible old farts (G. Clinton) among many other forgettable losers as Vice-Presidents of the United States, but none in our history have been as single-mindedly demented, even wicked, as Richard Cheney. What an awful excuse for a human being he is.

Special bonus snark:

Dear Leader knows he’s toast. He’s kind of lost, nursing his resentment, wallowing in self-pity, sulking around the White House and muttering that History will vindicate him. Richard Cheney, on the other hand, has the mentality of a suicide bomber: he knows he’s toast, too, but by God as long as he’s able, he’s going to pursue his violent obsessions; for war’s sake, Dick Cheney will spit his last political breath at thee. Richard Cheney is no Nixonesque crack-up; he’s not paralyzed by unpopularity at all, just mindful of the countdown to 1-20-09 and trying to create as much damage as possible until then. Bush is too demoralized and depressed to exert the force majeure necessary to back up Condi and overrule Dick. But then again Dick will not be overruled by anyone. And besides, Dear Leader is content to chew on (or, rather, chew-up) Iraq, where Dick Cheney has always seen the Middle East as a smorgasbord of goodies.
