Dick Cheney As Wise Republican Elder Statesman

You probably heard that House Republicans brought Dick Cheney in for a meeting yesterday so he — yes, he, most recently of blundered Iraq war fame — could strategize with them on the next go round in that miserable disaster.  They were more than happy to listen, according to Rep. Peter King (R-NY), “because most of us think we did the right thing in Iraq.”  Really?  Does that mean “most” of them still believe al Qaeda was there (it wasn’t) and Saddam Hussein had WMD (he didn’t)?

Holy cow.  Is this really happening?

Today Cheney gave a speech at the ultra-conservative American Enterprise Institute and railed at Obama to do whatever it takes “to win,” even though he and Bush weren’t able to do that themselves.  What gall.

Anyway, what in the world are Republicans thinking bringing back this monster as an adviser?  The guy left office with a 13% approval rating and my sense is he’s still widely despised.  All I can think of is this is what happens when a bunch of people — as in House Republicans — live in Faux News/Limbaugh land.

It Depends on What the Definition of “Extreme Circumstances” Is If You Have a Cat, Keep it Inside or Put a Bell on Its Collar for Godsake
