History will not be kind to these assholes
Well, well, well...
As the years slide by we will no doubt find a lot of dirt about what historians say is the worst puppet presidential administration in American history.
"Raw Story" has two back-to-back stories about the Cheney administration and his little buddy "W".
The first is about the Cheney "lawyer shooting incident":
"Every so often, for months afterward, some of the lead in Whittington's body worked its way to the surface. But many pieces remain too deeply embedded to remove, including one near his heart. At 82, Whittington knows he will live the rest of his days with about 30 pieces of shot inside him."
"The Cheney-shoots-man story takes up all of page C-9 with text and pictures, and concludes with the punch that Cheney is a world-class jerk who has never apologized."
Make no mistake; Dick Cheney is the most powerful shithead in the entire world.
And then this:
Ex-top soldier: Iraq war ‘fiasco’ due to Rumsfeld’s ‘lies’
"The US had no reason to invade Iraq in 2003, and only did so because of "a series of lies" told to the American people by the Bush administration, says Gen. Hugh Shelton, who served for four years as the US's top military officer."
Shelton was the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1997 to 2001:
"Spinning the possible possession of WMDs as a threat to the United States in the way they did is, in my opinion, tantamount to intentionally deceiving the American people," Shelton writes."
"In another part of the memoir, Shelton asserts that "[t]he John McCain that I knew was subject to wild mood swings and would break into erratic temper tantrums in the middle of a normal conversation."
So here's the scorecard as I read it;
Conservatives who were suckered by Bush/Cheney refuse to admit it.
Now we have smart guy, a Constitutional law professor in La Casa Blanca.
Except he's a black cat.
Which pisses off the Neo-Confederacy.
So, instead of yielding to the new political awakening, they go bat-shit far-right.
The corporate puppet-masters provide propaganda and funding to the knaves in the hustings.
The torches and pitchforks come out.
The far-right fields the most incurious, stupid candidates since George W. Bush.
Or guys like Rand Paul who say they would consider rolling back the civil rights act. Let white folks ban minorities from their place of business.
Discontinue public education.
Come on people, get your shit together.
America has always flirted with Fascism, but this is getting scarey.
