By acting wacko now, when he is taken to trial for crimes against humanity, Dick Cheney will be able to plead insanity.
It’s all a carefully planned strategy.
Observe him carefully, as his statements become increasingly unglued. More incoherent, more paranoid—traits now cropping up in his daughter’s inarticulate defense of her father.
Solution: incarcerate him now or soon we’ll see him wandering the streets, babbling at dogs and cats.
Pity this man who fifty-percent of the country once regarded as their savior.
Sigh for the lost soul who believes that he alone can save America from evil.
