The Divine Madness of Emperor Cheney’s Not-So-White House (1/27/07)

“It won’t stop us.”

(Vice) President Cheney, when asked in a television interview what would happen if the Senate passed a resolution condemning the escalation of the War in Iraq.

“Delusional is far too mild a word to describe Dick Cheney.”

Columnist Maureen Dowd, referring to the term Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois used in describing Cheney on the Senate floor. Dowd wrote of Cheney, “Has anyone in the history of the United States ever been so singularly wrong and misguided about such phenomenally important events and continued to insist he’s right in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary?” [Fast-forward to 2017]

Theories abound as to why Dick “Tator” Cheney is sucking America dry without batting an eyelash.

Some say it's to destabilize the Middle East so Israel can demonstrate to the world that their only hope for survival is to nuke their Arab neighbors.

Others say it’s to increase his share of Halliburton’s obscene profits, one of the “enormous successes” he frequently refers to.

Still others say it's because his face is paralyzed.

I believe it’s because he’s gone stark-raving bonkers and belongs in an institution, in restraints, under 24-hour surveillance.

Since the Ship of State already lacks a rudder, not to mention a compass, that would leave Mad King George in the hands of Propaganda Minister Karl Rove, who may yet pay for breaking the law when he spilled the beans about Valeria Plame.

And here we thought “Desperate Housewives” had more twists than a taffy pull.
