    This post (thread) is about former Vice President Cheney.

    He is a great man.

    Lots of those who do not share my political inclinations will vehemently disagree with that assessement. Oh well. They're wrong.

    Now, to get things rolling, here's a blurb I just saw on-line from MSLSD. As a general rule, anything and everything from MSLSD/MSPMS ought to be taken with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, I kinda liked this one:

    I'm one of those who would disagree with you, Liability. But that's okay, civil people can disagree without blood shed. ;)

    I couldn't stand the man even though I voted for President Bush twice.

    I heard this morning that he is writing his memiors. Trust me, that is not a book I will be buying.

    Cheney is one of the Great Man of his times, and I truly almost hate him (I work very hard at hating no one, but have to work very, very hard with Mr. C.). His unability to see light in the world and his willingness to lie despite the obvious facts will reveal his character in his memoirs. And, yes, everyone should read them to see what depths some in the American politic can drop. His wife dropped even further. In my humble opinion. Unlike some, I am not shouting, just stating my opinions in a calm voice.

    If I could get it on pre-order, I would.

    I anticipate that his memoirs will be a better, richer, fuller, more reliable and more well-documented historical work than most "memoirs" we see nowadays.

    I think he's a goon just like anyone else in Washington. Corrupt, lying, liars. All.

    You don't actually expect it to point out how far he has fallen, do you?

    Or, do you expect him to point fingers at people like Nancy Pelosi as examples of how far "other people" have fallen?

    No. Not "truly."

    Instead, that's just your opinion. You are entitled to it, naturally.

    But your opinion is devoid of fair or rational basis.
