Our Reprehensible Vice President

Members of the Frontiers of Freedom Institute got an earful last night, then had trouble wading through the knee-deep bullshit on their way to the restrooms, where, if they were wise, they "purged" after "binging" on Dick Cheney's rancid rhetoric.

In the sharpest White House attack yet on critics of the Iraq war, Vice
President Dick Cheney said on Wednesday that accusations the Bush
administration manipulated intelligence to justify the war were a "dishonest
and reprehensible" political ploy.

Dishonest and Reprehensible? Are you fucking kidding me?

What is dishonest and reprehensible is manipulating intelligence (which BTW is proven, not just rumor) and lying to Congress and the American people about it, babbling incessantly about Iraq's non-existant WMD, ties to 9/11 and al Queada, making a 3000% profit on your Halliburton stock options, then when the press and the public demand an explanation, accusing them of re-writing history.

It's also reprehensible is that we allowed these idiots to get a second term. They are engaged in a big ol' propaganda campaign right now, and if we don't pay attention and educate ourselves, these greedy killers and their ilk will continue to wage war against all that is decent.

Pointing out the facts and demonstrating your displeasure with the current state of affairs is anything but dishonest and reprehensible. Even apple pie is not more American than speaking out against the government. Freedom to petition the government, freedom to speak your mind, and freedom of and from religion are what this country was built on. Perhaps Mr. Cheney needs go back and read the Constitution.
