Contrasts Revisited

Did anyone catch Dick Cheney's speech to the National Press Club the other day, in which he casually admitted that in fact there had never been any connection between Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq and the terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attacks?  This despite the fact that for the previous eight years Cheney had stubbornly clung to the fiction that such a connection existed, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.  Did anyone catch Andrea Mitchell's interview with Liz Cheney, Dick's daughter, in which the younger Cheney denied that her father had contradicted himself and then reasserted the fallacy of the Saddam-terrorist connection?

Did anyone notice that while the Cheney family was running around on television, desperately trying to rehabilitate Dick Cheney's hopelessly compromised legacy, Barack Obama was in Cairo, giving a thoughtful address, seeking to undo some of the damage done to U.S. relations with Muslim countries and attempting to restart a long-stalled Middle East peace process?  I've said this before, but really it never gets old:  How glorious it is to be represented at home and abroad by a President of whom I can be proud, a President who speaks forcefully and eloquently about and for American values, a President who is respected and admired throughout the world, rather than reviled.

Now, if only the Cheneys would crawl back under their rock and leave the rest of us alone.

I want to know when the MSM is going to hold these people accountable for their provable lies and distortions. Then again, considering the MSM, probably never.

I'll say one thing. The more these idiots jabber the deeper the RepubliKan party swirls down the toilet. All that remains is whether or not to give them a courtesy flush.

Yeah, wouldn't hold your breath on the MSM doing anything so gutsy. But the GOP doesn't need any help making themselves look bad these days....

And yet for all that, Cheney wouldn't even win the Worst Person of the Week award.
