Wow, they really DO create their own reality…

Former Vice President Cheney to Matt Lauer this morning:

“I don’t think that it [the Iraq war] damaged our reputation around the world. I just don’t believe that. I think the critics at home want to argue that. In fact, I think it was sound policy that dealt with a very serious problem and eliminated Saddam Hussein from the kind of problem he presented before.”

Head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk, head-desk.

Here on Planet Earth, the other nations that collectively bestow our “reputation” watched our Iraq war murder-suicide-faceplant in the horrified fascination with which a passerby might attend a loud, belligerent drunk’s demonstration of his puppy-and-Hattori-Hanzō-sword-juggling act. Cheney could look it up.

One of the serious drawbacks to being an atheist is knowing that there is no hell in which smug, lying bastards like Cheney will eventually roast. Pity.

Yep.  I’m an atheist too, but I still enjoy yelling “see you in Hell” from time to time.  I’d probably say that to Cheney if I ever got within earshot of the bastard.

“And the Hellish reality that’s blossomed like a cancer around the world since January, 2001 only strengthens my point.”

I’m an atheist, too, so I have no guilt when I hope that his illness will cause him unending pain and distress and that he dies a slow, miserable death.

Damn, Donnah, you’re a harsh atheist! Well, if anyone deserves that, Cheney does. I try not to wish pain, suffering and death on anyone (just eternal damnation!), but I will observe (uncharitably) that Dick looks like a gut-shot iguana these days.

It comes as no surprise that someone who endorsed torture is so self-deluded. I’m reminded of the interviews with Pol Pot before his death, where he justified genocide as the only way to save his country. I’m sure he believed it too, just like Cheney believes this bullshit.

That’s the downside of living on live kittens and unicorn blood - you go absolutely insane.

I think Cheney really does believe this - and it’s not a matter of being deluded into thinking everyone loves us, it’s a matter of it being all too easy to imagine him railing like a B-movie villain that “we do not wish to be loved, we wish to be FEARED!”

So, if a good reputation means everyone thinks you’re a nuclear-tipped raging madman, he’s right.

I’m ordering a flag to hang out front the day Cheney dies.

Appropriate?

So long as you fly it at half-mast.

So long as you fly it at half-mast.

Seems about right, since ol’ Cheney has been at half-mast for decades.

I don’t even run a political blog, but I’ve got plans on posting about the greatest comic book supervillains whenever Cheney kicks off. Let they who has eyes to see, and all that…

If he’s not going to waste away in a jail cell for the rest of his days on this earth, I don’t want to hear or see this man again.

I’m no expert, but Buddhists and Hindus believe in karma and reincarnation, in which one’s acts in this life predispose one to a higher or lower form of life in a life that is to follow this one.  Cheney may not be reincarnated as a boll weevil—in fact, what do we know?  Karmically, he might have done everything right, enough to be reincarnated as a higher form of human life, such as, let’s say, a bodhisattva.  I would hate to think so.  In fact, my personal hope is that he be reincarnated as a desperate hovel-dweller in a jungle hut in some godforsaken corner of Africa, infintely far from the pleasures of the modern world, a place where life is a daily struggle merely to survive until tomorrow.  In such a place he might learn to have compassion for the kinds of people who, in his present state of being, appear to mean nothing to him.

And there would be tse-tse flies.

Dick Cheney was never the sort given to introspection, retrospection or critical self-evaluation in general, so I’m not surprised he produced a memoir that’s a score-settling, history-warping middle-finger extended to the world, with one foot wedged in the Exit Door.

I’m just wondering which poor shmuck at Simon & Schuster got volunteered to tell him they were changing the title from Go Fuck Yourselves to In My Time.

And there would be tse-tse flies.

I think he’s annoyed humanity quite enough. I recommend he return as one of the bacteria that survive in superheated underwater volcanic vents. That’ll learn him.

I just hope I live long enough to go take a long , satisfying piss on that rotten bastard’s grave.

What Speedy said. They could pay down the national debt just by charging a modest fee for the privilege of whizzing on old vampire’s mouldering remains…

I just hope I live long enough to go take a long , satisfying piss on that rotten bastard’s grave.

Just watch out for Liz. She might be waiting in the landscaping to rush out and slice it clean off with her deballing knife. Who am I kidding? She can do that with just one look.

Why doesn’t Cheney head abroad and see how he’s greeted?  What?  No one wants him?  Well, we don’t, either.

@Elisabeth

He can always be emperor of Libertarian Island (irony noted and mocked).

Will there be a line to piss on this bastards grave when he dies because I don’t think i can hold it much longer.

Why doesn’t Cheney head abroad and see how he’s greeted?

There are standing warrants for his arrest.

In that case, I’ll buy him a ticket. Hell, I’ll buy two tickets and he can take Henry the K with him.

This about sums it up for me.

Well, further proof Cheney has no interest in empirical reality, since it’s not as if this data was hard to find.  Why didn’t he just say “So?” again?  It’s not like he ever gave a shit.
