A noted liberal hawk makes Dick Cheney's treason pretty damn clear.
Tim hasn't been writing much about the torture stuff, but Dick Cheney has finally got him angry, and when Tim's angry about something, watch out!
Today, Tim wrote a tour de force up and down Dick Cheney's backside. To quote it in part cannot really do it justice, but here's the FIRST money quote.
Cheney claims he could never have foreseen 9/11, while simultaneously claiming to foresee the next one with perfect clarity. Cheney claims only his torture policy can save it from happening, while simultaneously claiming he did not create that torture policy. Cheney claims the release of torture photos will hurt American soldiers, while denying the torture ever happened and claiming previous such photos created by his fiat never hurt American soldiers. Cheney claims that investigating the torture will be damaging to the country while he now wants to include Nancy Pelosi in the same investigation. Cheney argues his political party need not change while he chooses the brainless and largely despised corpulent radio thug Rush Limbaugh over a unanimously revered military hero Colin Powell, who served in Vietnam while Cheney himself did every single thing he could to avoid that service.
This is a psychosis.
Cheney’s illness leaps to treason at the point where he literally wishes for such a terrorist attack on US soil, for the sole purpose of returning himself and his political party to a position of power. Of all the crazy things I’ve ever heard from the anti-war left, regularly accused of treason by Cheney and his allies, nothing from the anti-war left has ever approached this level of shame. I suspect if you asked Cheney himself if this was his goal, he would admit it.
And the second...
Cheney ignores the central fact, as his psychosis always demands the rejection of fact, that we had an election. In that election, this dementia was rejected in favor of change, and not just any change. We not only went to a Democrat for leadership. We not only went to a liberal Democrat for leadership. We went to a liberal Democrat who is black, whose blackness enraged Cheney and his ilk to the point they told us he was so fully the manifestation of every enemy of America as to be a satan.
We ignored that, and we doubled down on change. And hovering at 70% approval of our decision ever since, we’re gonna let that shit ride. We are all in, baby.
And the third...
And when the day Dick Cheney prays for does arrive, and more Americans die at the hands of terrorists Cheney prays to succeed, America will again turn to their president, just as they turned to George W. Bush. This country will unite even further behind Barack Obama, and Dick Cheney’s final psychotic gamble will carve into his headstone, slow and deliberate, the title which eternity will never forget.
Here Lies Richard Cheney - Traitor.
I'm starting to think the GOP could completely destroy itself if they try to say "I told you so" when and if the next attack comes. If someone doesn't stand up and reject Cheney with authority, they are creating such a trap for themselves...anyway, enjoy!
