Rarely Has A U.S. Veep Been So Wrong About So Much At The Expense Of So Many

I try to ignore the Cheneys—Dick and, now God help us, Mini-Me—as much as possible because, to me, they smell strongly of sociopathy and I try to avoid that sort of thing.  I blame the dumbing down of the Republican party for its current abysmal lack of political talent which, in turn, means that we Americans are being subjected to extra innings of their Senior League—looking at you, Dick, Mitt, and is that really you? Tom Tancredo?

Clearly, no one in authority is ever going to prosecute Dick Cheney for the criminal damage he has done to mankind and, since the First Amendment sets no requirements for sanity, civility or integrity tempering one’s public utterances, Cheney is free to spout his neocon chickenhawk ravings for as long as his new heart holds out and Republicans and their proxies are stupid enough to give him airtime.

So.  Where is it that washed-up, bitter old Republicans go to vent?  Hannity, of course. Because Sean Hannity can be counted on to ask moronic questions like this:

. . . how could Obama have been so wrong on so many issues when it comes to ISIS?

Creating the perfect opening for Cheney to say something Cheney-esque like:

I think it’s deliberate. I think [Obama] has a world view, and increasingly what he’s found is that it isn’t consistent with reality.

Whereupon Mini-Me pipes up with:

The president has laid out a fantasy for the American people, and is trying to disguise it as a strategy, but it’s not going to keep us safe.

Which is the cue for people like me to say: But please, Cheney’s, what WILL make us safe?  We are so afraid . . .
