What a Dick

Question of the day: Why is Dick Cheney such a dick?

Today he was annihilated by President Obama in a speech-off. CNN covered both speeches live, which I don't really get. Obama gives a speech nearly every day; we don't need to cut live to every single one. And Dick Cheney was speaking in front of a conservative think tank, so who cares?

At any rate, Obama was making sense. Cheney...not so much.

Here's one line from Dick's speech that jumped out at me:
After the most lethal and devastating terrorist attack ever, seven and a half years without a repeat is not a record to be rebuked and scorned, much less criminalized. It is a record to be continued until the danger has passed.

Please, Dick. You want credit for "keeping America safe" from 9-12-01 thru 01-20-09, but when it comes to 9-11 itself, it's nothing but excuses. "No one could have foreseen," "a pre-911 mentality," blah blah blah.

You want a pat on the back, Dick? Okay, but it also comes with a big raspberry for that one time we experienced, in your own words, "the most lethal and devastating terrorist attack ever." On your watch!

I passed on your request and this was the reply:

I'm too good looking not to be on TV, and besides, haven't you heard? I'm the Messiah.
