Please God, don't let Cheney die
Imagine, a full week of Cheney-dominated tv.

Of course we don't like to speak ill of the dead, so his image will be softened. We will be treated to stories of Dick as a college student, Dick as a dad, Dick as a doting husband, anything but Dick as a dick. News stations will search for photos that show his human side. Likely they will have to resort to baby pictures.

And then there is the very lengthy funeral, during which numerous dignitaries will have to feign sadness and respect, while fighting down urges to spit on his grave.

In the meantime, the masses will gradually forget the bad times, the crimes against America, the torturing, the face shooting. Out in public you will overhear comments like, "You know that Dick Cheney, he was an alright guy."

When it seems like it is almost over, that is when the real nightmare will begin.

Liz Cheney, her chin thrust out and her eyes glistening with the hint of tears, will announce that she won't let her father's dream die.

That's when she will announce a run for the presidency.

"It's the big one Ethel!"

2. I get your point. I'm not ready for the canonization of Cheney, either.
And you just KNOW that's what hte MSM will do. Especially fucking Tom Brokaw.

7. the last thing I fear is POTUS Liz Cheeeneey
5 x 5 dude. As I sat and sweated in the boonies of S. Vietnam we thought that 5 x 5 on a com line was pretty fuckin good.

5 heart attacks
5 deferments

5 x 5

It's the perfect time to lay it down, Dick.

8. My uncle says, "they shouldn't let you die till..
you've been married at least once." Taking a shot at me for being a life long bachelor, so far.
I read a novel one time that had the Russians actually having captured Hitler alive. Sorry, I can't remember the title and author right now. Hitler was taken to a cell at KGB HQ and everyone that knew that except for the KGB chief was executed. Only he and Stalin knew who was in that cell.
Stalin used to go in there and torment Hitler regularly. I'm not advocating torture, or at least anything that Dick would consider torture, but I'd like to see Dick meet a similar fate. Let hope Dicks ticker keeps on going for awhile yet.

9. ...until we get a chance to waterboard him
Seriously I couldn't give a rats ass whether or not he is alive or not, but I gotta tell you, you are going to wind up disappointed.

God, unfortunately, IS going to let Cheney die.

Someday.

12. Don't give them any ideas.
They are still trying to deface Mt. Rushmore with Reagan. The last thing we want to do is give them any more ideas. :wow:
