Jesus Tits

I’d ask if he was kidding, but I think that horse left the barn, wandered out into the infield and dropped dead, so …

Vice President Dick Cheney said on Thursday that Iran was at the top of the administration’s list of world trouble spots and expressed concern that Israel “might well decide to act first” to eliminate any nuclear threat from Tehran.

“You look around the world at potential trouble spots, Iran is right at the top of the list,” Cheney said in an interview aired on MSNBC on the day that George W. Bush was sworn in for a second four-year term as president.

Cheney, one of the chief architects of the Iraq war, said the administration would continue to try to use diplomacy to address what he said were serious concerns about Iran’s nuclear weapons program and ties to terrorism.

Can anyone think of a reason why such a pronouncement should not be greeted with a resounding call from everyone on earth of WHY IN THE HOLY NAME OF THE BABY MOSES SHOULD WE EVER BELIEVE A WORD OUT OF YOUR LYING MOUTHS AGAIN?

Seriously, if there’s any reason why any country deemed a threat should not automatically be considered a total non-threat at this point, due to the crying of wolf in Iraq, somebody please send me a candygram or something. Do these people get why fucking up Iraq as badly as they did was dangerous, not to Iraqis, not to our soldiers but to Americans sitting at home watching American Idol and ordering out from Gino’s?

The true danger of being wrong in Iraq was that if we were, later on we’d be right somewhere else, and nobody would believe us.

I don’t know shit about Iran’s threat to us, if there is one, honestly, but right now I automatically assume that whatever comes out of Cheney’s mouth about it is wrong. That’s not just sad. That’s terrifying.

That’s what they’ve done.

Happy Inauguration Day.
