Cheney needs to shut the f up, as AlterNet so aptly put it.

On the other hand, if the GOP wants to be represented by people like Cheney, Gingrich, Rove and Limbaugh, let them continue to be a fringe organization. They do seem to enjoy it so much more.

Just lock Dick Cheney inside a MRI Room and threaten to turn on machine unless he fesses up. Ah hell, put the rest of the Bush apologists in the room with him.

Do you remember the fire in Cheney’s office?  Wonder what evidence he destroyed that day?  Dick Cheney is the poster child for EVIL! He and Karl deserve all the karma coming their way.

Oh How they Scream and Cry like Lil’ girls.
Apparently the accusatory phrase ‘Thou protest too much’ eludeds them.
But lets not lose ourselves in laughter, These guys are the masters of Distraction. We have yet to learn about those ‘Black Sites’ and Who were those on Cheney’s Assasination hit list.Gitmo & Abu Ghraib are ‘Red Meat’.
And if their claim is that these tactics kept US safe- do they also lay claim to keeping Canada Safe- their PM may take exception to such overreaching claims. And If their ‘Intell’ was so valueable, Why did it not lead to arrests prior to the attacks such as in Spain.
It’s obvious the desire for info had nothing to do with derailing any terrorist attacks- purely to reinforce their Illegitmate invasion into Iraq

Cheney, Rove and all of BushCo belong in tiny little locked boxes. Why are we hearing anything from these walking-talking disasters? And if the O only appears unraveling their demon child, then he deserves an even a smaller locked box. Frankly, I prefer in your face reality to these uber-protected harpers.
