Evil Dick is "proud" of his grotesque little wife's "slapdown" of Wolf Blitzer


On next week's election, Cheney said that despite the polls and predictions to the contrary, Republicans will maintain control of both chambers of Congress.

He also offered a positive outlook on the economy despite the latest reports that show some weakness in the housing sector, reduced gross domestic product last quarter and other indicators, and said economic successes would be endangered if Democrats take control after Nov. 7. Hammering home a GOP theme, Cheney said the most liberal Democrats would be in charge if the House majority changes. He cited Rep. Charles Rangel of New York, who is in line to take the chairmanship of the powerful Ways and Means Committee if Democrats win control of the House. "Charlie has said there's not a single one of the Bush tax cuts he thinks should be extended. And he could achieve that objective simply by not acting. Unless there's an affirmative action by Congress, legislation passed to keep those rates low, those rates are going back up, and he'd have a massive tax increase," Cheney said. As for his own future, Cheney did not budge on his position that he will not run for president if he were nominated and would not serve if elected.

The vice president did offer support for his wife, Lynne Cheney, who took on CNN's Wolf Blitzer in an interview last week that was supposed to be on the second lady's latest book. Referring to a network special earlier this month that showed terrorists attacking U.S. forces, Lynne Cheney asked the anchor why the network was "running terrorist tape of terrorists shooting Americans." "Why are you running terrorist propaganda?" she asked. Cheney said he didn't encourage his wife to take a stand, but that he was proud of her. "I thought it was great. We refer to it around the house as the 'slapdown.' And she was very tough, but she was very accurate and very aggressive ... So she spoke her mind, and I thought it was perfectly appropriate," Cheney said.

1. She even looks like an evil bitch in her yearbook photo!
Him, otoh...what the fuck happened, Dick? What was the event in your life that turned you into The Penguin? Now you're just an ugly, nasty, bitter, fat old fuck. What happened?

3. Looks like he was healthy enough to serve in Nam
just like the 58,000+ who came home in body bags. Had to work those deferments though because dick had other priorities. And we have suffered ever since.

7. That hair could deflect bullets, that's for sure!
Save the government money on a helmet, just like he decided not to supply armor to our troops, just like he and Rummy decided our troops didn't need vests.

5. And believe it or not, she was the Homecoming Queen...
"Dick and Lynne Cheney began dating at Natrona County High in Casper, Wyoming, where she was the homecoming queen and he the football team co-captain. Lynne was an outstanding student, and Dick was good enough to win a full scholarship to Yale.

While his wife-to-be streaked through college and graduate school, Dick Cheney dropped out of college and went to work installing powerlines across the West. To win his girl, though, he soon went back to school, where he shoneŚcompleting most of a doctoral degree before being wooed into politics."

:puke:

8. She probably blackmailed the other students to vote for her.
How else can you explain it?

19. The yearbook photo doesn't show it: he's short.
But it IS kind of amazing how that relatively normal looking 50's era guy morphed into... the potbellied pig we see today.

9. She looks the same, but what happened to him!?
At what crossroads did he sell his soul.

It would be interesting to know what former classmates have to say about what they were like back in high school.

11. Hardly a slapdown, Dickie Boy. More like an unhinged meltdown.
She humiliated herself.

14. ...
Oh, I love this.

On next week's election, Cheney said that despite the polls and predictions to the contrary, Republicans will maintain control of both chambers of Congress.

Really, Dick? Please, could you tell me how to get to the reality you're living in?

15. I did not think she got the best of that to-do at all.
I also think CNN did right to run the tape. More open things are the better people can judge. Frankly I think what is going on should go on. Every one should be fighting with each other about what they think. If this was not how we thought in American I would be singing 'God save the Queen'

18. Wolfie is an easy target, and seemed to relish being "slapped down" by the harridan.
