Ah, But You See, You Have To Consider the Source

I came across this little tidbit in the news today, when reading about the defeat of Joe Lieberman in Connecticut's Democratic primary:

"Not only did it create a curious political dynamic, it provided the GOP a new opportunity to caricature Democrats as weak on security and espousing what Cheney called 'a pre-9/11 mindset.'"

I'm sorry, WHO called it a pre-9/11 mindset? Dick Cheney? The guy who shot one of his best friends while hunting and then made HIM apologize? The guy who still rakes in millions from Halliburton, which--doggone it, wouldncha know--just HAPPENS to hold the contracts on all this "infrustructure building" we're doing in Iraq? And takes vacations in Wyoming every other week?

Oh yes, he's SO credible. He's REALLY in touch with the current thing. Please sign me up to receive all HIS pearls of wisdom. And what pearls they are! Slamming on them durn peaceniks! Reminding everyone that they're weak! Stuck in that thar pre-9/11 era!

But wait--didn't he say that LAST week? And the week BEFORE? And the week before THAT? You know, maybe he's not taking all these vacations on purpose. Maybe he merely forgot that he just came from there...

And as far as "weak," excuse me, but I don't think WE'RE the ones that have a battery of a dozen doctors following us around, waiting for our heart to stop.

Maybe he and President Moosh are in a race to see who can take the most vacations. You know, sorta like that race President Moosh had with his brother (Jug-Band Jeb) six years ago, to see who could execute the most people.

You think?
