Recently, we learned that the tides of Hookergate II. rise much higher than we’d realized; that is, the Vice (as in “criminal”) President patronizes prostitutes. This would be one big yawn; after all, prostitution should be decriminalized anyway, so who cares what this half-dead man does or did with his pallid little pecker? EXCEPT that this is the dick of Dick Cheney, Evil Puppet-Master of the Fascist Perma-War Universe, Chickenhawk Slaughterer of the Innocents, aimlessly shooting at hapless civilians, from children in Iraq to his own hunting buddy in the woods. With that in mind, we go to the report of my fellow Counterpunch writer and former U.S. Naval Officer Wayne Madsen:
“WMR has confirmed with extremely knowledgeable CIA and Pentagon sources that the former CEO who is on Deborah Jeane Palfrey’s list is Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney was CEO of Halliburton during the time of his liaisons with the Pamela Martin & Associates escort firm. Palfrey’s phone invoices extend back to 1996 and include calls to and from Cheney…while he was the CEO and maintained a residence off Chain Bridge Road in the Ballantrae neighborhood in McLean, Virginia, a few blocks from the headquarters of the CIA….”
I know, just the thought of the creepy Veep having any kind of sex is like something out of Abu Ghraib. But we all know how tales of illicit sex wake up the American Masses, while this atrocious illegal war, the loss of civil liberties and all of Cheney’s other crimes barely seem to disturb the great American slumber. No wonder the mainstream media, who are the real hookers to this Dick and his government/corporate cronies, etc., are keeping this story under wraps.
After the opening salvos of Hookergates I and II, I eagerly awaited the next high-level hypocrite’s name to float up from Palfrey’s List. When nothing happened, I assumed, like many Americans, that there were no more big fish on the list. Little did I know that the White House was busy keeping their biggest fish out of the frying pan, telling ABC News they’d better not expose the tender balls of the Darth Vader of American politics. While this news was being squelched on ABC and breaking on the Internet, the Dick himself was standing in front of five F-18 Super Hornet aircraft in the cavernous hangar of the US aircraft carrier John C Stennis in the Gulf talking tough about Iran to beleaguered American soldiers who can’t even handle Iraq.
Fellow bloggamists of the blogosphere: Let’s hold this Dick’s balls to the fire any fire we can find. The sex he had with the Pamela Martin gals (or guys) is no big deal. But the war crimes he has committed cry out for some kind of justice.
