In other news, punchlines write themselves!
Have at ‘er in the comments.
Meanwhile, here’s a Cheney Humour blast from the past:
UPDATE: Twitter is proving to be an impressive repository of Comedy Gold. Mine it!
As predictably as a morning dump, the completely irrelevant ex-VP took the opportunity of the undiebomber attack to do a little mouthing off about what he characterized as Obama’s “low-key” approach to terrorism. Obama doesn’t know we’re at war! Obama doesn’t want to keep us safe! What a king-hell douche:
“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core Al Qaeda-trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war,’’ Cheney continued. “He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe.’’
In response to the doddering old chest-thumping fool whose massive shitpiles they’ve been mopping up for the better part of a year, the White House snarled back:
To put it simply: this President is not interested in bellicose rhetoric, he is focused on action. Seven years of bellicose rhetoric failed to reduce the threat from al Qaeda and succeeded in dividing this country. And it seems strangely off-key now, at a time when our country is under attack, for the architect of those policies to be attacking the President.
Yes, it is strangely off-key, especially when Cheney himself brooked absolutely no dissent when in office. And anyone who didn’t like it would quickly find their reputations and careers in smoking ruins as they were branded treasonous, America-hating terrorist supporters.
Even more ironically, Cheney’s latest barrage of verbal diarrhea was deployed just as investigators confirmed that one of the Al Qaeda creeps who helped set up the failed Christmas Day attack was a former Gitmo inmate that the Bush administration saw fit to release in 2007. For reasons known only to themselves and their Saudi overlords, Bush and Cheney thought it would be a good idea if this “hard-core, Al Qaeda-trained terrorist” was sent back to Saudi Arabia — for “art therapy“, no less — and then quickly released back into the wild to re-join Al Qaeda and eventually connect with the dumbass kid we now know as the Undiebomber.
Heckofajob, Dickie! Now STFU and go take a nap.
UPDATE: Courtesy of Red Tory, here’s a clip from last night’s Rachel Maddow Show, in which she utterly decimates the old fart Cheney and the rest of the phony fearmongers of the GOP:
Now here’s a headline with the impact of a hail of bullets to the face:
But I think we should be taking the possibility of a Dick Cheney bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 more seriously, for a run would be good for the Republicans and good for the country. (The sound you just heard in the background was liberal readers spitting out their lattes.)
Why? Because Cheney is a man of conviction [...]
Maybe he meant to say “a man who deserves a conviction?”
