I have been a political junkie for my entire adult life, which dates back to the Nixon years. I have never seen a more incompetent, mendacious, dangerous candidate for president. God help us if this bitter old man somehow manages to get himself and his hyper-ambitious running mate elected.

I wish I believed in an afterlife, because if I did it would comfort me to know there is a special place in Hell for Dick Cheney:
I don’t believe in souls, either, largely on the basis of stuff like this.
