Bwahahaha (or) Dick Cheney's recent hits

by eriposte

Oliver Willis comments on Dick Cheney's over-the-top comments about, er, Dean being "over the top". Here's Cheney on Dean (bold text is my emphasis):

Howard Dean is "over the top," Vice President Dick Cheney says, calling the Democrats' chairman "not the kind of individual you want to have representing your political party."

"I've never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best I can tell,"Cheney said in an interview to be aired Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes."

Dean was elected governor of Vermont five times between 1992 and 2000. He ran for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination but closed down his campaign after poor showings in early primaries.

At least AP did some fact-checking about the "never won anything" claim and reported it right after Cheney's comical remarks. As for Cheney's other comment that he's "never met anybody" who loves Dean, er, would this be a bit like his over-the-top, complete fabrication about never ever having met Edwards before their Presidential debate? Right!

Just for fun, here's a very very brief sample of this GOP stalwart's pathological lying.

  • Saddam has reconstituted nuclear weapons? Check
  • Insurgency in "last throes"? Check
  • Never suggested a connection between Saddam/Iraq and 9/11? Check
  • Saddam harbored Zarqawi? Check
  • Kerry voted for tax increases 98 times? Check
  • Edwards hometown paper calling him Senator Gone? Check
  • Edwards' charges about Cheney and Halliburton being false? Check

One thing we can say about Dick Cheney. He's "not the kind of individual you want to have representing" any human being. Mr. Cheney can certainly continue in his position as a key spokesman of the Republican Party despite having done business with America's top enemies (members of the Axis of Evil) while he was at Halliburton. That alone shows what the GOP stands for.

Howard Dean, unfortunately, can't boast about his profitable relationships with America's enemies. That's definitely "over the top" for the GOP, isn't it?
