Big Ugly Dick

So now we have Dick Cheney taking up the arythmic drumbeat started on Friday by his boss. Cheney said tonight that people calling the administration on their pre-war manipulation of intelligence are making, "one of the most dishonest and reprehensible charges ever[.]" He accuses Democrats who are currently Bush-bashing on the floor of the Senate and elsewhere of being hypocrites and political opportunists.

Okay, well, he's at least partially right. The Dems are fucking weenies. They stood by like Kitty Genovese's neighbors while Bush made hash out of our foreign policy and they're only saying "boo" now because W's incredibly shrinking approval ratings have called olly-olly-oxinfree. But Big Dick and the rest of the croneys aren't pissed at how lame the puss-o-crats are, they're just freaked out about those ratings and want to shut their critics up by suggesting that anybody who doesn't grab their ankles when the White House says so is giving the terrorists aid and comfort.

This shit's gotta stop. We need to find some Democrats who aren't petrified of offending even one potential voter. We need leaders who can call bullshit here. I'm not seeing Hillary or Nancy or Ted anywhere near worked up enough. So fuck them. We need Robert DeNiro to run for the Senate. He's got the tough guy image going for him and you know he doesn't really give a shit what people think of him. He did a movie wherein a cat pooped on someone's ashes. He was in fucking Rocky and Bullwinkle. What does he have to lose?

But wherever the new leadership comes from, they need to pounce on it now, before the public starts losing interest in the war and the lies and the corruption because there's a new season of The Sopranos or something.

Bush and Cheney should not be getting away with saying that it's unpatriotic to criticize them. Then again, they shouldn't have gotten away with saying or doing half of the shit they've done since they took office. The difference, though, is that now there seems to be a decent chance of stopping them. If anyone's got the nards.
