Musings 49--The "last throes" of Dick Cheney

Maybe it is just people named Dick that causes me to ponder. I mean, Tricky Dick Nixon was a natural at spinning and breaking and entering. Now we have Dick Cheney. He is a real piece of work.

In an interview the other day, VP Cheney said that the Iraq insurgency was in its "last throes." See Link. I am sure that he will amend this sometime later down the road, but for now his statement stands. "Last throes" means the fast approaching end. Nobody else in the Bush Administration or the Pentagon seems to agree with his assessment. But what the hell, VP Cheney still thinks there are WMD's in Iraq. He knew exactly where they were.

Would someone please tell me why VP Cheney can say anything he pleases and is never called on the carpet for it. Is it because he resembles the Darklord of the Sith? It is because he has a bad heart? How about it is because he has a black heart? Black heart....hmmm, I think I feel a nickname coming on...Blackheart...ah...Blackheart Dick, it fits.

To say that the insurgents are in their "last throes" is like throwing red meat to the lions. The last few days there have been bunches of Iraqi people and soldiers killed. How come no one is holding Blackheart Dick accountable? It kind of reflects back to the "bring'em on" quip from Mr. President. Yep, bring'em on, 1720 dead and counting with more than 12,800 wounded.

In the meantime, new information is still coming out on why we went to war in Iraq. The reporter who broke the Downing Street Memo is talking. See Link. The mainstream press is starting...grudgingly--to look into this. If these memos are true, then Mr. President should be impeached. He lied to the American people and started a war with a county that had not attacked us. My fellow republicans say that is old news, get past it and move on. I say that we wouldn't have gotten past it if Bill Clinton had done the same. I just want consistency.

So when Blackheart Dick says that the insurgency in Iraq is in its "last throes" he better be able to back it up. Thus, he should be held responsible for American lives that are lost because of his rash remarks. Please apologize, VP Cheney. A real man could do nothing less.
