The Dick can blubber along with the best of them — and if he shoots you in the face, well, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and if he “outs” a CIA operative involved with keeping track of nuclear weapons there’s the ancient catch-phrase from the Polish army, ‘tough-ski, shit-ski.’
Or just maybe he’s a freakin’ asshole of a traitor, both to his hunting companion and his nation.

Of course, anyone with any kind of sense (GOP, Tea Party, Fox News, etc., not included) knows Dick Cheney is one of the biggest problems the US has encountered in its short, but detailed life — and the Dick has been an ugly thorn in the side of honesty and truth for more than three decades.
In more modern times, the Dick blubbered out in 1994, that an invasion of Iraq would mean another US involvement in a quagmire (he changed his tune a few years later) and if US peoples are overwhelmingly against George Jr.’s horrible, dumb-ass wars? — “So” freakin’ what?
And so freakin’ what if he shoots a guy in the face with a shotgun?
In February 2006, the Dick shot Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old Texas attorney, in the face while both were quail hunting in Texas — Whittington call the incident an accident.
From “Meet the Press” later that same year: â€œI donâ€™t know that you ever get over it,â€ he (Cheney) said. â€œFortunately, Harry is doing very well.â€
Maybe the Dick lies — Harry wasn’t an old friend and he wasn’t doing so good at all.
News accounts at the time routinely described Whittington as Cheney’s “old friend” and “hunting buddy.”
In fact, the two men barely knew each other. Before the shooting, they had met briefly only three times since the mid-1970s and had never gone hunting together before.
“The most you could say is that he was an acquaintance,” Whittington says.
And the so-called accident? He underwent invasive exploratory surgery, as doctors probed his vital organs for signs of damage. The load from Cheney’s gun came close to, but didn’t damage, the carotid artery in his neck.
And Whittington says the Dick never said nothing — gun-play means the Dick never has to say I’m sorry.
And the case of Valerie Plame, the outed CIA agent whose role in the Dick’s waging of an illegal war was big new a few years ago.
On CNN Joe Wilson, Plame’s husband, says the Cheney is a traitor for what he did:
They betrayed the national security of our country,” Wilson, an outspoken critic of the Iraq War and former U.S. Ambassador said. “By betraying the identity of a covert CIA operative, whose identity is kept secret because it’s in the national interests that the identity be kept secret, in order for her to be able to acquire foreign secrets on behalf of our country.”
Wilson also later went on to say that he didn’t know if former President Bush was a traitor as well.

The Dick knows.
