Clinically Insane

The Veep from the Deep crawled out of his cave yesterday to reiterate the insane rhetoric he's been making for years:
None of us wants to turn over the future of mankind to tiny groups of fanatics committing indiscriminate murder, enslaving whole populations, oppressing women, imposing an ideology of hatred on an entire region, and arming to create death and destruction on an unbelievable scale.
This from the man who was Secretary of Defense when his military did this to a poor neighborhood in Panama City,

and this to Iraqi troops retreating from Kuwait.

U.S. planes trapped the long convoys by disabling vehicles in the front, and at the rear, and then pounded the resulting traffic jams for hours. "It was like shooting fish in a barrel," said one U.S. pilot.

This from a man who is one of the ringleaders of a tiny group of fanatics committing indiscriminate murder (see above), enslaving whole populations (over two million Americans in prison, NAFTA/CAFTA/WTO legalizing sweatshops), oppressing women (and not just what they do here in this country), imposing an ideology of hatred on an entire region (neoliberal/neocon capitalism is an ideology of hatred they are trying to impose on the entire world), and arming to create death and destruction on an unbelievable scale. This tiny group of fanatics is known as the Bush administration.

Useless Dick also said to the Convention of the Military Order of the Purple Heart:
These Americans can wear the Purple Heart with pride, knowing with absolute certainty that they have contributed to the future safety of this nation, and to the peace of our world.

Every man and woman who fights and sacrifices in this war is serving a just and noble cause. This nation will always be grateful to them.
Unless, of course, they should choose to run for office as Democrats, in which case they will be called cowards and flip-floppers and everything else the Repug slime machine can spew out. And you can judge for yourself how meaningful the claim of a "just and noble cause" is coming from a profoundly unjust and ignoble man.

Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden are evil men. Dick Cheney is not in their class. He's in that very special category of much more evil men like Hitler and Stalin, trying to remake the world for his own benefit, and killing anyone and everyone who gets in the way.
