Evil Bastard

I woke up this morning and tried to catalogue the reasons to despise US Veep Dick Cheney. I went through the usual list - Iraq, fear mongering, Halliburton, lying, Afghanistan, secrecy, Halliburton, corporate democracy, the Taliban, suppression of civil rights, KBR, Saddam and al Qaeda, Saudi Arabia, Bechtel, Saddam and WMDs, Iran, Halliburton, death and suffering and misery on a massive scale - you know, the same old same old - but then I noticed something was missing, overlooked.

Oh yeah, it was the black thing. As a Congressman in 1980's, Cheney voted against resolutions demanding the release from prison of Nelson Mandela. Cheney smeared Mandela as a "terrorist." There it is. Add that to his opposition to Martin Luther King day and you have all the fixins' of a genuinely evil bastard.
Actually I'm still not sure I got it all. How about it? Anything to add?

Yeh. Just one;

His current position:

No one will assassinate Bush because that means Cheney becomes President. So the US continues to be run by an idiot to keep the true evil bastard out of the office.

That's some catch that catch 22.

And now you know why I'm an anarchist.

Okay, you're all right. Wait, I stumbled across a couple of others. How about child poverty and infant mortality, both up in the US under the "tax breaks for the rich" Cheney Doctrine?

How about this.

Thanks Ed. Another real eye-opener. This guy is another Rasputin.
