Sir Dick Cheney

I've heard it said that Dick Cheney thinks he's a latter-day Winston Churchill (or was it that Scooter Libby thinks Dick is Winston Churchill? -- too lazy to find the reference). Well, Dick, I'm sorry to break it to you: you ain't no Sir Winston, so stop with the lame, apocalyptic, "war-rousing" rhetoric. It just makes you look desperate. American kids are not dying (or haven't been dying -- I accept that things are a little better now) because of the loyal opposition. They're dying because you and your hawkish buddies had a great plan to defeat Iraq, but severely cocked-up the occupation. As one sage put it, "Dick Cheney, before he dicks you."
