CNN: Cheney Gives Speech, Makes Me Crazy
I dunno if “Cheney slams Obama” is entirely accurate. When I think “slam” I think of the WWE, and this speech seems to be more about slippery logic and bad ethics, which is not the same.
I will rebut Cheney’s crappy arguments with what John McCain said perfectly in 2005: “They donâ€™t deserve our sympathy. But this isnâ€™t about who they are. This is about who we are.”
What I’ve learned from Cheney’s speech is the next time I want to question someone’s decisions I will start by saying “I think so-and-so has a Tribble living in his nose” and then describe how a Tribble up one’s nose jeopardizes national security. Then my audience will be so persuaded by my anti-Tribble arguments they will forget I pulled the whole accusation OUT OF MY FEVERED BRAIN.
In other news, check out how the photo illustration makes Obama look all Lincoln-y and Cheney look like someone I would chase off my yard with a bat. Is it weird that Cheney looks the same age as he did ten years ago? This man isn’t exactly the picture of health, either, unless that picture is Dorian Gray.
CNN changed the photo illustration — I think maybe to put accuser Cheney on the left? — and now it is even awesomer.
