crime by chicating

extremely half-assed political post

Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday he was offended by Amnesty International's condemnation of the United States for what it called "serious human rights violations" at Guantanamo Bay.

Bitch, please. I'm offended by corporate greed, needless death, and the complete inability to understand that you're not always right -- i.e., everything you stand for -- and I don't see you giving me an apology.

President Bush called a human rights report "absurd" for criticizing the United States' detention of terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and said Tuesday the allegations were made by "people who hate America."

Gee, I love this tactic of yours of repeating something until it becomes true. How many times do I have to say you're an irrational, frightening little ideologue who clothes himself in the language of Christianity while completely ignoring its messages until people will believe me?

These two have got to go in the Bitch Please Hall of Fame, founded this morning for completely unrelated reasons.

Seriously, can you imagine the outcry if Bill Clinton had declared "I frankly just don't take them seriously" about Amnesty International or another similar group? The United States is supposed to be beyond reproach on these issues -- that's what makes us the United States. If we've now reached the point where simply being the United States is an excuse for not following the rules, then I fear for my country.
