Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

    dick cheney does not and has never read any memos. He writes them and distributes them. The thought that he would read one, from W even, is laffable. That guy is a serious asshole.

  2. freakishlystrong

    Axlerod did a pretty good check on that little prick Andy Card as well, (in WAPO?), when he mentioned they had to roll up their sleeves in the Oval Office, to clean up the mess they inherited.

  3. Red Zeppelin

    BTW, Is Wonkette planning to sue SNL for that opening skit? I know it was Valentine’s Day and only shut ins were watching, but still!

  4. SayItWithWookies

    That’s a good start. Now can we have a Dick Cheney effigy tour the country by rail so good citizens can line up and beat it with their shoes?

    So it sends like Bush is acting like some conspirator when the police bust in and he’s all like, “Thank god you guys are here.” Little shit is already trying to negotiate a deal and Axelrod is putting it out that he’s ready to rumble with Cheney. Soon Leahy will be holding those hearings, and all the bad guys will go to jail, right? Right? Please tell me that’s what this means, please?

    Is it possible that Mr. Axelrod is one of the Wonkette commenters who writes “eat a bag of dicks” every time Cheney’s fat hateful ass is mentioned here. And good catch, [re=244319]freakishlystrong[/re]: .

  7. HipHopOpotamus

    Dick Cheney is an American Hero. I was unbelievingly upset when the “Thank You President Bush” site was not immediately supplemented (or, better yet, supplanted) with a “Thank You Lord Cheney” online petition. This man brought us to real security, real power, and real monsters come to life.

  8. BobLoblawLawBlog

    Bush couldn’t have been more generous during the transition? Like, not even if he had actually let “the cullerdz” stay in the fucking White House???

  9. Whitey Did Katrina

    I frequently call Cheney a dick as part of my job as well, as I’ve found that people like a little politics with their soft serve.

  10. sati demise

    Cheney is permanently stuck on the dark side. Probably been there all his life. Too bad he had to drag the whole country over there for a while. Hope he stays in his black hole forevah.

  11. TGY

    Ah-ah, ‘waterboarding’ is something we now no longer put up with. At most, we’ll be allowed to taunt Dick Cheney from a distance of not less than ten paces. And make funny faces, but no scary ones.

  12. sati demise

    Dick cannot believe anyone would not love his defense of “rape by instrumentality” of prisoners.
    (Digby today- almost unreadable sadism)
    Something tells me this is what Cheney is talking about rather than the boring waterboard technique.

  13. Dean Booth

    “Axelrod gets to go on Meet the Press and call Cheney a dick as part of his Administration job.”

    I’ve heard it’s not a job — it’s just work.

  14. sarcasticusername

    we’ll all remember this when poor david shows up not too long from now, with a bunch of bullets in his face. it’s too bad really, i always kinda liked barry’s rumpled old wingman.

  15. sati demise

    [re=244379]sarcasticusername[/re]: no, poor David will just have a florescent light or broomstick shoved up his butt, thats the Cheney way. (then he will be stuffed into a sleeping bag for asphyxiation, then a bunch of bullets accidently fired into his face to cover up the real cause of death)

  16. DoctorCulturae

    David exhibiting a healthy pair here. Nice to hear someone speak in calm, clear tones. “He doesn’t like the American people’s VERDICT” indeed. And the “down the line” comment is a reminder about the distribution of power as constitutionally established.

    Darth from his dark cave, throwing a fist into his palm: “Rat-bastards!”

    Perhaps Dub made a deal with Hopester to throw Darth under the bus?

  17. Double Scorpion

    Wow, someone actually gets paid to barely hide their contempt for loathsome pustule Cheney on national television? This is actually a job? Next you’ll tell me there is gainful employment as a Female Body Inspector or Operator of a Mustache Ride.
