Dick appears physically incapable of regret, which, in case you didn’t know, is actually rather common among the Undead.
WALLACE: Did you tell Senator Leahy, “bleep yourself”?
CHENEY: I did.
WALLACE: Any qualms, second thoughts, or embarrassment?
CHENEY: No, I thought he merited it at the time and we’ve since patched over that wound.
As revealing as that exchange was, this one’s even more illuminating:
Host Chris Wallace also asked Cheney if he was bothered by his outgoing approval ratings – a dismal 29 percent.
"We didn’t set out to achieve the highest level of polls that we could during this administration," Cheney said. "Eventually you wear out your welcome in this business."
Is that so?
Let’s see — the last three 2-term presidents were Clinton, Reagan and Eisenhower. Clinton left with a 66% approval rating, Reagan, 63% and Eisenhower, 59%. So, no Dick, you only "wear out your welcome" when you totally wreck the country.
But don’t you also love the way Dick equates low popularity with good governance, as though, in a democratically-elected republic, having a majority of the electorate think you’re doing a good job is somehow bad. In other words, 70% of the American people are idiots.
Hey, Dick? Go fuck yourself.
