Former Vice President Dick Cheney has refused to stay out of the political spotlight since leaving office, giving high-profile interviews to CNN and Politico. Last night, The Hill reported that congressional Republicans are telling him “to go back to his undisclosed location and leave them alone to rebuild the Republican Party without his input”:
Rep. John Duncan Jr. (R-Tenn.) said, “He became so unpopular while he was in the White House that it would probably be better for us politically if he wouldn’t be so public…But he has the right to speak out since he’s a private citizen.”
Ask yourself: Why the hell is Dick Cheney still "dickin' around" in politics and governmental affairs? Why hasn't he just asked for a desert island to retreat to? Dan "No-brain" Quayle at least had the decency to fade into the past and write books nobody would read (simply because nobody believed he could write!). Al Gore took up a cause fiercely and won a Nobel for it. What the hell is Nobel going to give Cheney a prize for?
"The Nobel Prize for Pure, Unmitigated World Contempt" goes to Richard 'The Sneer' Cheney."
Do we have to applaud?
Democrats have wanted him to go away for the last 8 years. Now Republicans want him to go. Next: the trusted NRA will take him to the Mexican border - at gunpoint.
Just a (delightful) thought.
