4. He's doing one other thing
He's throwing red meat to the vocal minority of nutburgers that make up the base of the GOP.

6. Tricky Dickie II - perfect for a republicon clown with 5 military deferments
Edited on Thu May-21-09 01:58 PM by SpiralHawk

That was pretty tricky in and of itself, getting a Championship Republicon Rating by dodging the draft 5 times - the repubs just luv that shit

But being an oil man and boosting oil prices to 4 and 5 bucks a gallon while greasing the skids for War Profiteering Corporate Cronies, and stiffing our sons and daughters in uniform and our veterans -- was Totally Skanky Tricky

7. I disagree...
For all his shortcomings, Richard Nixon did not seek to get out of military service. And, he had actual cause for exemption as a Quaker.

No, Cheney is far worse than Nixon ever was, for any number of reasons. He needs a nickname that sets him apart.

8. He's also positioning himself in case there is a terrorist attack
in the US during Obama's administration.

I truly believe he wants the US to be attacked while Obama is president, the worse the attack the better for Cheney. Then he can come out when people are at their most frightened and vulnerable and, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the attack, say "This is why I did what I did. I kept you safe. I warned you about Obama..." etc.

The Limbaughs and Hannitys would know exactly how to spin it, they would go self-righteously ballistic - they want to see an attack, too. They have their priorities you know.

9. Just like limpballs
