Vice President Dick Cheney apologized for saying Monday that he has "Cheneys on both sides" of his family tree -- on his father's and mother's sides, going back to the 1600s -- and adding, "And we don't even live in West Virginia."
I don't live in West Virginia, and while I was there rafting once I heard far better incest jokes from locals.
(Q: "what's a west virginia girl say after sex?"
A: "get off me daddy, you're crushing my smokes")
But wow was I offended by Cheney.
Here's the line that offended me:
"You can say those things when you're not running for re-election."
So the George and Dick show "won" two contested elections, and then completely f*cked the economy with their massive tax break for the super rich (Hey George, that same strategy helped create a depression in the 1930s and f*cked the economy that your father inherited in 1988. Google Andrew Mellon, the guy who came up with it, and get back to me). They started an unwinnable war in Iraq and have managed to make America look even worse in the eyes of the world than we did before. (Again, George- those people in Iraq you're trying to pacify and unify with our wonderful democracy hate each other, and have hated each other since long before our democracy was born. they are in a religious war that goes to the very root of their religion. If you want their oil, take them over. If you want them to stop fighting, put another ruthless dictator in place. Democracy ain't gonna cut it over there).
Now, since they don't need our votes anymore (though since their win was in dispute in 2000, one might ask if they ever really needed any votes) they can go ahead and insult people.
arrrrgh! Idiots, and they're running our country!
