and also thinks it’s an insult. this, from the cajun boy @ gawker, is interesting:
But perhaps even more impossible to fathom is that with each passing day Cheney makes Bush look more and more like a sympathetic character. If things keep going the way they’re going now, it’s entirely possible that history will come to judge Dick Cheney as the best and worst thing to ever happen to George W. Bush’s legacy — worst because Bush’s misplaced trust in him during his presidency more often than not led tounfortunate consequences, and best because Cheney’s post-presidency attacks on him are enough to make even the most dedicated Bush-hater feel sorry for him, even if only just a bit.
but this, from the comments section, is fucking awesome:
I was visiting my mother in the hospital last year, and the doctors were testing and old woman next to us for lucidity. She got all the questions right, but when it came to “who’s the vice president?”, she said “I can’t remember. I can only remember that he’s an evil man. Sorry,” and the doctor said “that’s okay, it sounds like you know exactly who he is.”
it reminds me of my own grandmother, who grew up in wyoming in the 30s and 40s and has told me that cheney was always an evil bastard.
