Changing the tone in Washington... ah, fuck it

Is it me, or is Dick Cheney just plain whacko?

I don't know if it's age, or the corrupting influence of power, or all those hours spent in his undisclosed location, but our vice-president seems more and more like a loose cannon with each passing week. The guy lives in his own ultra-conservative la-la dreamland, like most of the Bush administration -- but at least Bush and most of his cronies pay lip service to reality. Cheney simply doesn't care what anyone thinks. He continues to insist, against all evidence, that there were links between Saddam and Al-Queda. Now he's telling U.S. Senators to go fuck themselves.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think we all should pray for the health of George W. Bush as long as he's president. As bad as Bush is, a Cheney presidency would be even worse. Bush is disappointed and puzzled that foreign leaders don't like him; Cheney would simply tell them, to their faces, to go screw themselves. Congressional Democrats making trouble? Not when you cut off all federal aid to their states. Trouble in Iraq? Nothing a couple nukes couldn't solve. Cheney would be a return to the mad European monarchs, or maybe all the way back to the worst of the Roman emperors a la Nero.
