    comment but I keep thinking about Cheney. Or Cheeny as Chris Matthews insists. I think Liz Cheeny pronounces it that way too.

    He requested five deferments to keep himself out of harms way during the Vietnam war. Later he took a giant oil company and turned it into a giant "defense" contractor.

    Then he started two wars to funnel money to Halliburton with no competitive bidding allowed. Americans were so scared of the "smoking gun that might come in the form of a mushroom cloud" that we let him get away with it.

    Now his daughter is using that blood money to run for Senate. In WWII we used to prosecute war profiteers.

    Reaganomics noun pl: belief that government is bad, that it can increase revenue by decreasing revenue, and unregulated capitalism can provide unlimited goods for unlimited people on a planet with finite resources.
