Dick Cheney: Who Talks That Way?



Something has been bugging me ever since I heard Dick Cheney say he thought President Obama was "dithering" about Afghanistan.
Then it dawned on me.
Who uses words like dithering in this day and age?
Just how old is that guy, anyway?
Dithering is even more codgerly than frittering.
Perhaps the elder Cheney should don his best white breeches and tri-cornered hat, grab his blunderbuss and challenge Obama to a duel.
Dithering.
What a doddering old fart.

I used the phrase "frittering away your time" in a conversation with a student today, and I immediately realized that I sounded like I was about 80 years old -- and I said so to the student. As in, "Did I really just say 'frittering'? I sound like I'm 80." Which got a laugh and allowed us to move on to more important things to dither about.

Dick has his panties in a knot because he like to get his wars on, without any delays.

Dither? Wasn't that Dagwood's Boss in the comics? Or do I bespeak balderdash?

Personally, I think Cheney dithers with underage children.

I have published an Open Letter to Eric Holder, the US Attorney General, asking him to either properly investigate the 9/11 Attacks or charge me with libel for accusing Dick Cheney of murdering at least 175 innocent American citizens that fateful September morning. Please read the letter, and show your support by asking that the charges be filed against me if the government will not conduct an open investigation to find the true criminals responsible for murdering nearly 3,000 of our fellow countrymen.

Nonnie, I swear I was behind on my blog reading and missed your entry about Mr. Dithers. GMTA!
OKjimm, I doubt Dick dithers with kiddies. I think he can only get aroused by the thought of war and torture.
Daniel, good luck on that.
