Dick Cheney will have told you so

dickDick Cheney is wasting no time making sure that he’s proven right.  According to, Cheney warned in an interview yesterday that there is a high probability of another large-scale attack on the U.S.  “Whether or not they can pull it off depends whether or not we keep in place policies that have allowed us to defeat all further attempts, since 9/11, to launch mass-casualty attacks against the United States.”

Forget about the way he and Finally Former President Bush pissed off the world with their thuggish diplomacy and with-us-or-against-us attitude (nuance was not that administration’s strong suit).  Forget about the fact that their policies likely created terrorists and America haters out of people who didn’t start that way.  No, all he’s concerned with is covering his ass.

Listen, Dick.  May I call you that?  Because it sounds no natural, so fitting.  You screwed up.  And you’re screwing up further by not admitting that you screwed up.  I see what you’re trying to do.  If there’s an attack, instead of worrying about the country and trying to help, you will be shouting from the rooftops about how you saw this coming (unlike in 2001).  You will have positioned yourself to hit the talk circuit and point fingers.  Congratulations.  You have the foresight to set yourself up as a hot interview in the face of unbelievable tragedy.

And if no attack comes, will you congratulate President Obama on a job well done?  No, I’m sure you’ll find a way to congratulate yourself – some bullshit about how the hard stance you took during the Bush years carried forward and kept us safe.  But you probably won’t need to worry about that part.  The sad fact is there probably will be another attack.  Terrorists tried under Clinton with some success, and tried under Bush with much more success, and I’m sure they’re in a cave somewhere planning a welcoming party for Obama.  But the important thing is, you will have been right.  Dick.

    I think that photo of him says it all.

    Amen. Cheney is the Anti-Christ.

    @ Karen “Amen. Cheney is the Anti-christ.” Not that I love Cheney, but that’s a little harsh. I hope you are joking.

    @ab – Honestly, I think they asked him to smile for that picture and that was the best he could do!

    Jen. I suppose I could say I am exaggerating a little. But I do think the man is evil. Not just misguided. I’m sorry if I offended you.

    Oh… it’s an inside joke, ok.
