He just won't go quietly, will he?

I guess it's like those parodies of "Return of the Jedi" where Yoda takes twelve or thirteen pages of dialog to die.

Cheney Says Obama Has Increased Risks

Published: March 15, 2009

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday that President Obama had made the country less safe, asserting that the new administration’s changes to detention and interrogation programs for terrorism suspects would hamper intelligence gathering.

Mr. Cheney said the moves suggested that terrorism was now being treated as a law enforcement problem.

“He is making some choices that, in my mind, will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people of another attack,” Mr. Cheney said of Mr. Obama in an interview on the CNN program “State of the Union.”

and so on and so forth.

Y'know, he's been wrong pretty much 100 percent of the time on this subject. And his attitude and policies lost rather decisively in the last election. So I have to wonder why any news organization (other than one owned by Rupert Murdoch) will give him airtime anymore.

On a lighter note, why am I awake so early when I don't have to be at work today? I must be in a masochistic mood. Because I don't have to be anywhere until noonish. And then it's to enjoy a nice lunch with before hauling myself onto an airplane and off to Sacramento. Where, best I can tell, the closest alternatives to eating at the hotel are going to be in a mall food court. But at least I'll learn lots of federal regulations. I can't wait.

If you can't tell sarcasm when you read it, you need to develop the skill...LOL!

It's going to take wooden stakes and holy water to get rid of Cheney.
