Vice president blasts 'cynical and pernicious falsehoods'

"Cheney" is Wyomish for "no shame." From CNN:
Vice President Dick Cheney on Wednesday lambasted Democrats accusing the Bush administration of misleading the country on prewar intelligence, calling their allegation "one of the most dishonest and reprehensible charges ever aired in this city."

"What we're hearing now is some politicians contradicting their own statements and making a play for political advantage in the middle of a war," Cheney said. "The saddest part is that our people in uniform have been subjected to these cynical and pernicious falsehoods day in and day out.

"The president and I cannot prevent certain politicians from losing their memory, or their backbone. But we're not going to sit by and let them rewrite history. We're going to continue throwing their own words back at them."
And we'll continue to throw yours back at you, you worthless piece of Bush.

In one respect, he's right. The Democrats who voted for the war were being dishonest and reprehensible--when they voted for it. But the chief liar and cheerleader for the war, who has been proven wrong on just about everything and will go down in history as a war profiteer and war criminal, not to mention a chickenhawk, is absolutely not the one to call them on it.

The people in uniform have paid the price, day in and day out, for Cheney's "cynical and pernicious falsehoods."

Go Cheney yourself, Dick.
