Dick Cheney Receives Keeper of the Flame Award

Dick Cheney received the Keeper of the Flame award last night, given by the "Security Policy Center" in Washington, DC, which is a right-wing lunatic fringe outfit operated by the terminally obnoxious Bush bootlicker, Frank Gaffney.
Dick and his felonious second banana Scooter Libby attended the event in black tie, where Dick made a speech roundly criticizing President Obama's "dithering" on Afghanistan.
Keeper of the flame? Don't they mean keeper of the crypt?
Gaffney and his posse seem to forget that 9/11 happened on Dick's watch, and speaking of dithering, the war they started in Afghanistan 8 years ago was abandoned so Bush and Dick could divert our troops and money to vanquish the enemy of Bush's owners, the Saudi royals.
It takes some colossal hubris for Dick to critique Obama's handling of Afghanistan.
It takes even more hubris for that idiot Gaffney to want to award Dick for his stunningly malevolent incompetence.
While I applaud the White House's efforts to keep insisting that media freaks like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are the true leaders of the GOP, they could just as easily maintain that Dick Cheney is the head of the party with much the same results.
Still, before my own head exploded over the news that Cheney received this award, I was immediately restored to sanity when I realized that millions of Americans must share in my outrage, thereby assuring that the Party of No continues to circle the drain.
Nice going, Gaffney.

this is like deadeye dick being a surgeon and cutting off a patient's wrong leg. the patient fires dr. deadeye, switches to dr. obama, and dr. deadeye blames obama for the patient's limp. meanwhile, we're all wondering why dr. deadeye hasn't yet lost his license.

p.s. and scooterpie is the nurse dr. deadeye makes blow him in the linen closet between shifts (just to complete the analogy).

Oh, I think Nurse Scooter happily blew Dr. Dick whenever and wherever he'd let him.

The worst case of dithering happened on 9/11. While our country was under attack we were defenseless for over an hour and a half.

It took nearly a full month for the Cheney administration to send the military to Afghanistan, and from the start the mission was wrong-headed, focusing on the overthrow of the Afghan government rather than the capture of Al Qaida enemies.

Really, this is just one more attempt by the Bush leaguers to rewrite history. I've been reading a lot of Civil War history lately and one historian remarked that though history is usually written by the victors, in the case of the Civil War most of the history was re-written by the losers. R.E. Lee was a genius, Grant was a drunk and so on. Well, the republican losers are trying their best, but it ain't working. They might have greater success if the former second family, Dick and Mary, weren't so goddamned charm-free.

I'm glad to see most people gagging on the attempts by the republicans to reframe those eight years.

Dick and Liz Cheney are the absolute best advertisements for the Democratic party and the progressive movement.
They are part of what I call the regressive movement. In fact, they lead the GOP's regressive movement.
The more we hear from them, the better off we all are.

I love it - dead eye was only 19% approval a year ago, and it's probably -10% now. Go ahead and represent your ever-shrinking neocon sect, Dead eye!

Did you see Gaffney get owned by Tweety last night?? It was hilarious. Gaffney got in a dust-up with Ron Reagan and said "your father would be disappointed in you" and Tweety then told Gaffney that his party is just like the Taliban!!! You could practically see the steam coming out of his ears.

Good times.

It's apparent that the neocons have to make do with bestowing stupid-ass awards on each other because no one else is gonna do it.

Happy irrelevancy, neocons. Buh, Bye!

Helen, I saw that last night and I thought (after Gaffney made that stupid father crack) that Ron's father was so senile before he left office, he couldn't tell what day it was, much less feel disappointment in anyone.
Still it was a smarmy thing to say. Gaffney's a real nitwit.

I felt just fine about the whole thing after I saw my boyfriend, Lawrence O'Donnell, spank the hell out of Mourning Joe re this issue. Joe's gin blossoms went haywire while Larry was spanking him. The spanking is on Youtube if anyone's interested.

Look at the List-o-losers who are also Keeper's of the Flame:

Joe Lieberman
Duncan Hunter
James Inhofe
Paul Wolfowitz
Newt Gingrich
Ronald Reagan
Jon Kyl
Caspar Weinberger

Jeez! All they need for the complete set is Rumsfeld, Gonzales, & Rove.
Ooops! I forgot Tom Delay!

* Keeper of the Flame is code for Major Douche bag.
