Once a Dick…

From Holden:

Always a Dick. Speaking of Dicks, here’s one of the biggest Dicks to ever prowl the earth taking the oath of office while resting his hand on a Bible held by his gay daughter, officially designated as a second-class citizen by the administration he serves.

Some folks thought they detected a touch of regret from the old Dick this morning.

On the Don Imus radio show this morning, Cheney said he thought Iraq would recover more quickly after the U-S invasion.

In the interview, Cheney had been asked to identify mistakes in the U-S war plan. The vice president said Saddam Hussein’s brutality in putting down a revolt in 1991 “made the situation tougher” than the administration expected.

Cheney says he’d “chalk that one up as a miscalculation.”

But they were wrong.

“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 described Iran’s nuclear program as “fairly robust.”
