Terrorists like like-minded American politicians - ones that talk about how Islamists’ evildoing is ‘not their fault’, etc. That plays directly into their hands. I suspect that they aren’t big fans of Cheney.[/quote]
Ok, just so I’m clear on this - People who don’t like Cheney must then be terrorists? Or they must just like terrorists more than they like Cheney? Or people who don’t like Cheney are on the same side as the terrorists? “I hate Cheney therefore I hate America” ummmm,ok
Back in the 80’s I voted for Cheney for our Rep from Wyoming. His platform, and you can ask him yourself if you don’t believe me, was basically “There are 435 assholes in the House of Representatives, and Wyoming only gets one. Make sure ours is the biggest asshole of the bunch. Vote for Dick”. It worked, and yes, he was the biggest asshole. But dammit, he was OUR asshole.
He even tells the story of once when he pulled into a small store on a desolate Wyoming highway he was enough of an asshole that even he felt kind of bad. Knowing how much of a dick he was coming off as, he then introduced himself as “Al Simpson, your Senator”. Always gets a big laugh.
To summarize, Cheney has been an asshole for a long, long time. Bush takes asshole lessons from him, and people like Scooter and Rove are known as “grasshopper” assholes, hoping to someday attain the level of elite assholeness as their sensi, the Grand Master Asshole Cheney.
