    No doubt he was playing to the ultra right wing base with that idiotic statement.

    Was that a recent remark? But wait a minute, those gutless wonders we call politicians for the most part actually don't think Dick Cheney is a self-serving maniacal SOB. Probably because his character and the majority of theirs are so closely aligned.

    IMHO if Cheney wasn't in cahoots with the terrorists, he might as well have been - because he did more to cripple this nation from within than any thousand Jihadists could ever accomplish from the outside.

    The Dems aren't smart enough to capatilize on this.

    If my recollection isn't failing me, I do believe the Dems were in control of Congress a significant part of the time when Cheney was VP. Dems approved everything shoveled at them by Bush - edification, modifications and remarks attributable to Cheney.

    Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Speaker of the House, declined to bring impeachment proceedings against either Bush or Cheney.

    So do explain exactly how at this late date after their acquiescence to almost every treachery proposed by Cheney, the Democrats have anything to capitalize on?

    Cheney left office with an approval rating somewhere between herpes and telemarketers.

    One of the top two contenders for the GOP nomination just said that he would want a guy like Cheney as his right hand man.

    Don't the Dems have a noise machine for this sort of thing?

    They do, but then I'm not sure they have anything to make noise about. Joe Biden, current VP, actually sent a GET WELL SOON e-mail to Cheney when he was last hospitalized. No, they don't have much banging the gong to do here.

    There will be plenty of time for that after the GOP candidates finish beating the hell out of each other.

    Ever heard the term "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"? The Dems have Biden.
