He sputters obscenities on the floor of the Senate, peddles torture to members of Congress behind closed doors like crack, and has an unnerving habit of mixing alcohol and firearms (ask Harry Whittington, who took more than 100 pellets in the face and chest, suffered a heart attack, and then in an act worthy of a North Korean dictator was compelled to apologize to the man who shot him on television!) And yet this hardly begins to describe Vice President Dick Cheney or the damage that he’s done.
You can do something about it. Write your Congressman and Senators today and urge them to support Rep. Rahm Emanuel’s measure to defund the Office of the Vice President. That’s right, defund it. Since Dick Cheney insists that he’s not a part of the Executive Branch (in order to avoid oversight of his abuse of classified information – which, as those who followed the trial of Scooter Libby know, is the specialty of the Office of the Vice President), why should the taxpayers pay for it!
