Dick Cheney — First Class Asshole

Time revisits the last days of the Bush/Cheney administration in a recent article.  As if there wasn’t reason enough to despise Cheney, he adds more:

The Libby pardon, aides reported, had become something of a crusade for Cheney, who seemed prepared to push his nine-year-old relationship with Bush to the breaking point — and perhaps past it — over the fate of his former aide. “We don’t want to leave anyone on the battlefield,” Cheney argued.

Now, Dick, it seems there should be a common sense understanding that dictates  men with authority (or in your case pseudo-authority) to place others on an actual battlefield, particularly when that authority  results in something as egregiously stupid as the war in Iraq, should avoid using war terminology when speaking about political operatives covering your ass in matters unrelated to war.

But you’re at least consistent — this just continues your chickenshit life.  When faced with service in Vietnam you had “other priorities“, but never hesitated later to put others lives in the line of fire while you stayed in your armchair or your undisclosed location or your lair or wherever the fuck soulless, gutless motherfuckers like you dwell.

Dick, if you had any honor you would not have pushed for the pardon for Scooter Libby, you would have taken the responsibility yourself in the first place.  Being outraged that your fall guy only gets his sentenced commuted, but isn’t pardoned is just plain pathetic, Dick, but par for the course for you.

Only you, Dick, can make George W. Bush look better — unfortunately, his standing up to you was  seven years and 364 days too late.
