  1. It’s funny because Cheney shot someone.

  2. Get it?

  3. What a ditz (not Cheney).

    Random (edf1d2)

  4. Not just because I am a lawyer. I thought it disgraceful for Cheney to try to boost his popularity by shooting a lawyer.

  5. Sarah Palin has finally learned how to face the media. Good for her. If I did not like her for a lot of other reasons (trailer trash that she is), I love her for making pro-abortionists’ heads explode.

  6. Well if by “learned how to face the media” you mean use the same word 3 times in a seemingly 800-odd word run-on sentence chock-a-block full of hokey self-excusing expressions, she’s golden.

  7. anyone who proclaims our SCOAMF to be a brilliant orator and all around genius while at the same time trying to say Sarah Palin is stupid is simply projecting their personal shortcomings and inadequacies onto her.

  8. I’d say they were similarly unqualified, red. Fortunately, no way no how will Romney nominate someone for whom that can be credibly said.

  9. Good. I have both a wingnut and a troll mad at me.

    nk (875f57)

  10. Yes, it was a bit flippant on her part, but giving that sort of answer to a panel that has bought Schmidt and Wallace’s line on a fairly consistent
    basis, could only have one intention.

  11. Oh the joke was funny.

  12. Cheney totally f’ed up when he was using live birds for target practice. His lawyer, too, watsisname.

    F’them both.

    nk (875f57)

  13. Please don’t tell anyone, but I kind of like Sarah Palin. Although she’s no better than she should be.

    nk (875f57)

  14. I’m a farmboy. I learned from my father. We kill animals for food, not fun.

  15. Whatzit with these WY cowboys? Simpson, Cheney, Barrosso, all would rather make points with the left and appear on TV than risk a fight.

    Obviously the VP, despite retiring from convention duty, is preparing the ground for some faceless two-dimensional pantywaist as Willard’s nominee.

    No Rubio, no West, no Jindahl, not even the Fat Man. Meh.

    Boy if Dick pulled W. to the right much if at all, where’d we get that cabinet from? Sununu?

  16. BTW, Palin writes well, is a fine speechmaker, is only so so extemporaneously and was a better choice than Pawlenty or Portman to bring in the base.

    Cheney had light duty by comparison. McCain didn’t pull his punches as much as Palin. “The Vice President and I differed on whether we ought to torture.”

    He shoulda followed W.’s lead, STFU.

  17. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122002155637283431.html?mod=googlenews_wsj

    Well AShcroft, Rumsfeld were good, most of the other appointees were kind of meh.

    narciso (ee31f1)

  18. 18. Which only serves to remind us Cheney’s unsuitablity to take over in the event POTUS could not.

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  19. Actually O’neil, for all his subsequent backstabbing and Snow, were better than the bankster Paulson, at Treasury, avoided some of
    the contagion with the financial scandals at the beginning of the term,

    narciso (ee31f1)

  20. No problem with Snow or Ashcroft, but Rumsfeld did screw up with using a small footprint and avoiding civilian casualties.

    We didn’t kill nearly enough Ba’athists and Sunnis before occupation.

    Having the CIA and State on the other side never helps tho.

  21. 10. Who’s the wingnut(s)?

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  22. Bristol is still gonna be on the new DWST no matter what Cheney says and you can bet your bippy Sarah will be there in the audience, justa cheerin her little heart out.

    So eat it, Dick.

  23. Dick made it into my Pantheon of Honored patriots when he told Leahy “GFY”, but his heart has changed.

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  24. Leahy is a bottom dwelling slug, of course his minion, is now the DOJ spokesman.

    narciso (ee31f1)

  25. Sometimes Sarah can be a dick. Just ask Herb Cain.

  27. Was he lying then, or now;

    Neither. Just as the military brass who insisted that John Kerry was not a war criminal were not lying when a few years later they said he was not a hero, over exactly the same incident.

    Milhouse (15b6fd)

  28. she’s just a big ol’ embarrassment.

    Anita Busch (1c1971)

  29. Are you embarrassed of her? Because I’m not.

    Milhouse (15b6fd)

  30. Then, I am embarrassed FOR you.

    Anita Busch (1c1971)

  31. Anita, how are you and your niece’s family doing?

    elissa (993426)

  32. I hadn’t realised that the American expression was actually spelled “Busch League” … Anita must be proud to exemplify such profundity of writing …

  33. I just couldn’t leave your site prior to suggesting that I actually loved the standard information an individual supply to your visitors? Is going to be back regularly in order to check up on new posts

  34. 32. As Rushbo is fond of saying, the motivation behind feminism is to even the score for homely women.

    I’m sure if George Clooney had a brain I’d be jealous too.

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  35. Anita, I have great respect for what you went through, speaking truth to power, but I’d like to know what do you really find embarassing about her,

    narciso (ee31f1)

  36. We’ll see who has the better aim within a few months:

  37. As Rushbo is fond of saying, the motivation behind feminism is to even the score for homely women.

    No better exemplified than by the vitriol against Germaine Greer from the Betty Friedan faction back in the ’70s.

  38. Elissa: It’s hard to wrap your mind around, to be honest. It has been very difficult for everyone. My cousin, Greg, is one of the most amazing and giving people you’d ever meet. He and his family need prayers right now.
