(With Dark, Ominous Cello Music in Background...)


From out of the depths, the musty animated thing ambles forth, shuffling through the graveyard of dead rhetorical justifications, clutching the mad vision he has nurtured from deep within the cold crypt of the Nixon administration from which he sprang. The sneering hunchback walks! Augh! He lives, and yet he has no heart!

Once a human not too unlike many others, he rose to ultimate power (behind the throne) of the party of "optimism." He still rises to cry out to his minions,
...But not much happy talk follows. Not a lot of hope, either. He does, though, talk about the prospect of "mass death in the United States." ...he is back on the road delivering a grim message about danger, defeatism and the stakes of the coming election.
But for now, the danger is contained:
More than half of Cheney's fundraisers in this two-year cycle have been behind closed doors.
And, like vampires who cannot look into a mirror, the Sneering Hunchback's minions cannot even bear to suffer his foul presence:
Even at a lunchtime speech to Wisconsin Republican donors that was open to reporters, gubernatorial candidate Rep. Mark Green did not stand on stage, ensuring no pictures of the two together on the news, and some other Republican candidates did not attend at all.
But still, he remains their dark master, and they bow deeply to him.
..."It's a very, very hard job that he and the president have, that they've had handed to them. You can belittle people for the things they should or should not have done. But..."
The translation for humans is this: "It's a very, very hard job that he and the president have, that they've had handed to them" [by the Supreme Court, bypassing the will of the voters and casting our precious right to vote into their bottomless pit of oblvion]. "You can belittle people for the things they should or should not have done." [And well you should, because those things make the difference between a country led by a real leader, and one held in the diabolical clutches of a slathering villain like Dick Cheney, Lord of the Halliban, and the reigning Ghoul-in-Chief.]

By the way, Don't forget what they do in his fiendish laboratory...

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
UNLESS: I'm there to prop it back up. Heck of a message he has, no? And those fundratsers behind closed doors? They are raking in mucho bucks. I have to wonder, did those donors really just come to hear doom and gloom.....or to grease the wheels for one party rule? You can get gloom and doom for free: just watch Fox for five minutes. These briberaisers, er fundraisers I mean, run in the thousands just for a place to sit.

Future: Yeah, I'm sure those corporate attendees don't expect anything in return for their donation... why, that would be dishonest!

funny to see other rethug assholes trying to hide from Bush or Cheney when a WHOLE LOT of them were complicit in getting those fucks into office not once but twice.
Including our esteemed Terminator..

Thanks, laurie. Sorry the link didn't last... I replaced it, but I don't know if I can find the original story.

One of my favorite quotes of all time:

“For eight years, Clinton and Gore have extended our military commitments while depleting our military power. Rarely has so much been demanded of our armed forces, and so little given to them in return. George W. Bush and I are going to change that, too. I have seen our military at its finest, with the best equipment, the best training, and the best leadership. I'm proud of them. I have had the responsibility for their well-being. And I can promise them now, help is on the way.”—Dick Cheney at his acceptance speech to the GOP national convention, August 2, 2000
