Secret Cheney Can’t Hide

A year or so ago, I was talking to a friend about impeachment of the president. I had just said, "Damn, I can come up with 4 articles of impeachment right now, and I'm sure as hell no Constitutional lawyer!"

She said, "how does "President Cheney" sound to you?

I just roared with laughter. Best laugh I had had in a week.

"You can't be serious, I said, "Dick Cheney cannot function in the light, let alone the harsh glare of the TV lights, anymore than Count Dracula could."

Hell, he's already the president in any way that truly matters, I went on, "it's time to drag Dracula out into the light of day. "

Well, leave to the Dick, himself, to make life even easier for us. He just couldn't stop pushing that old envelope until even the MSM had to report that the guy must really must be delusional because what he is asserting is just out-there, whack, goof-ball land.

Hey, it's time to call the guys in the white coats, as the old saying went. Dick Cheney believes he is, at least, a new branch of government, over which no one has any oversight whatsoever, or he has just declared himself a new planet in the solar system.

Either way, it's time for him to go.

To the funny farm, where life is beautiful every day...

Just as soon as the shrinks finds the right drug cocktail.

Secret Cheney Can’t Hide -

Vice President Dick Cheney isn’t part of the executive branch? Next, Prince William will claim that he isn’t a member of the royal family.

Yes, Mr. Cheney’s antics can be good for a laugh. Before his office dropped the ridiculous claim, Democrats, pretending to take him at his word, winked and said they’d remove financing for the veep’s office from the executive-branch budget.

In that case, the vice president’s self-evident contradiction was silly. But as revealed last week in a Washington Post series, the vice president’s inability to recognize contradictions can be tragic and disastrous. The basic contradiction is this: With pathological secrecy, Mr. Cheney pursues his law-bending (at best) activities in the name of making America and the world safer. The effect has been the opposite.
