Evil Dick, He's Everywhere, He's Everywhere

It seems that no matter what news show you choose, the Evil One is there, pretending to be concerned about the "safety" of the country. The media, apparently, are as obsessed with having him on their interview shows, as he is with trying to clean up his legacy. Unfortunately, for him, it is far too late for any cleansing.

Cheney has already shown up more for interviews in the last 100 days than he did during his entire stint as the back room string puller in the Bush Regime. He seems to be in panic mode, since it occurred to him that his evil doings were about to become public knowledge. He rants about the current administration making the country unsafe. At times he incriminates himself by revealing information about his involvement in decisions regarding the use of torture. Throughout this entire sorry series of interviews, it has become clear that he is desperately trying to rewrite the history of the Bush Regime to somehow make himself a hero.

At the same time that he is trying to cleanse his legacy, he has almost become a spokesman for the Republican Party. This comes at a time when some in the party are talking about trying to create a new, positive image for themselves. Instead they have to continue to fight Cheney's negativity and his attempts to continue to make the Republican Party synonymous with extreme right-wing demagoguery.

About the only thing that Cheney has accomplished these last three months has been to keep the Republican Party on the defensive and give Democrats great talking points about the opposition. Democrats rub their hands together with glee every time it is announced that he will be on yet another interview show. At the same time Republicans cry in their beer, knowing that once again, one of the leaders of the regime that took the country into a needless war, killed the economy and gave the United States a bad name throughout the world will appear to drag them back into that bottomless pit.

Keep it up, evil one. Keep reminding the people of this country what you and your puppet did. You were responsible for the needless deaths and maiming of thousands of Americans and Iraqis. You stepped on the Constitution. You gave the United States the reputation as a torturer and at the same time gave those who oppose us great recruiting material. Yours and your puppet's failed economic policies and your failure to police big business and the banking industry caused millions of Americans permanent financial ruin. Keep it up and a new party will be born as the Republican Party is buried, forever to be remembered as the party of the evil Chaney and his little sidekick, G.W. Bush.

Indeed. He is really digging a deeper hole.
