Dick Cheney: Barack Obama 'trying to pretend'

Keep the assault coming, Mr. Vice President!!

  1. In the meantime, there is now serious chatter out there about Dick Cheney actually making a political comeback. Some poor jackass even recently suggested that Cheney/Palin would be the ideal Republican ticket three years from now. Honestly, how mentally deranged would a human being have to be to come up with that combo? I can just see the campaign posters:


    Oh, please, fate! That would be a dream come true! Not even the American people would be silly enough to go down that road. Could it actually happen? Alas, probably not – my luck has never gotten that good and probably never will. But what a treat it would be, huh? I could get an endless supply of material out of a campaign that weird to keep me quite busy you may be sure.

    And what if they won? While it would be a disaster for my fellow country men and woman, for someone like me whose vocation is mining the streams for these choice nuggets of unintentional political humor, that would be like winning the freaking lottery, are you kidding me???

    BUT WAIT! IT GETS BETTER! Two years into his term, President Cheney drops dead from a massive stroke while shooting ducks that have been strategically placed in the White House swimming pool by the Secret Service. In less than an hour SARAH PALIN IS SWORN IN AS THE FORTY-SIXTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! By this time I am beside myself with disbelief at my good fortune! “I’ll never have to touch a computer keyboard again as long as I live!”, I am telling everyone within earshot, “These things will just write themselves!”


    But of course this is merely a wishful daydream on my part. As the heroine of the long-forgotten Broadway production “Sky Scraper” once musically asked:

    Why in the world would anyone look askance
    At an occasional fight of fancy?
