Don't You Wish We Had A Liberal Version of Dick Cheney
Think Terminator II when the evil robot from Terminator I became a good guy.

Someone with the same "asshole" mentality but used it for good instead of evil. Someone so committed to social justice that he'd bulldoze the congress and tell a Republican senator to go "Fuck yourself". Don't you want a liberal Cheney to snarl at the conservatives and call them looney in a speech?

Why do we have to play nice? Why do we have to be bipartisan?

4. Hey, look what happens when some hapless Dem
calls the Republicans "assholes."

We'd need to re-engineer the biology of the whole party (like, implant spines) in order for there to be any point. Our wimps turn on any of their own who show any combativeness whatsoever.

6. No. Dick Cheney is an evil criminal who deserves to be rotting in prison. We don't need that. nt.

7. It is proof of the media bias against us
And we'd have to ignore the media and learn to think of it as irrelevant.

They are also brazen, we are not. I would think the Van Jones guy could have been brazenly kept in office. He didn't do anything crooked, not that I know of. Then again the media would have exploded and revealed everything about him. Whereas they don't do that to their own (the repugs).

If Biden said FU to a Repuke it would be 24/7 covered on Faux, where the other way round was not, I assume, and Cheney brazenly stood by it. It must be we think that would hurt us.

12. No
The only reason for someone to behave as Cheney did was his utter evil. Without the evil, he wouldn't have acted like such as asshole.

14. remind me how it would be helpful to have someone represent us who is viewed unfavorably
by well over half of the population and viewed favorably by a third? Someone who is viewed very unfavorably by three times as many people who view him/her very favorably.

And, no, I don't think just because this abrasive, obnoxious person is liberal that these percentages would reverse themselves.

15. That would be impossible. Like being a born-again virgin.
"Liberal" excludes "cheney the dick".
