Please Keep Listening to Mr. Shootcherface

7 May

Cheney said the following, apparently without a hint of irony:

“I think it would be a mistake for us to moderate,” Cheney said. “This is about fundamental beliefs and values and ideas … what the role of government should be in our society, and our commitment to the Constitution and constitutional principles. You know, when you add all those things up, the idea that we ought to moderate basically means we ought to fundamentally change our philosophy. I for one am not prepared to do that, and I think most of us aren’t. Most Republicans have a pretty good idea of values, and aren’t eager to have someone come along and say, ‘Well, the only way you can win is if you start to act more like a Democrat.'”

Or more like a person with a commitment to the Constitution and constitutional principles. Or a civilized human being living in a western liberal democracy. Either way.

    “our commitment to the Constitution and constitutional principles”

    That’s a hoot. Although without the Constitution they would have had nothing to trample.

    They are all committed to the Constitution except when they claim there are emergencies which somehow relieves them of their commitments—which is most of the time.
