Chutzpah - noun, or Dick Cheney as Billy Madison

So Dick Cheney wrote an editorial. In the Wall Street Journal. On Iraq (it would seem like we could stop pointing out the ridiculousness of this right here, but that would be too soon).  And wrote this about the successor to the absolutely worst president of my lifetime:
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.
Maybe if he said, " since 2008...." that would make a little sense.   Dick Cheney was the criminal mastermind behind the worst presidency since at least Warren G. Harding.  He destroyed the credibility of the United States' position against torture.  He blustered about weapons of mass destruction, mushroom clouds over New York, being welcomed as liberators, ending the war in Iraq in weeks, not months (or a decade), and about a coming wave of terrorist attacks after the administration in which he served (or, more accurately, led the dumbfuckery), and in which the United States suffered more casualties to terrorism than under all other Presidents combined, left office.  None of this was accurate.  He was one of the chief masterminds of the worst unforced military error in the history of the United States (ok, Vietnam was bigger, but at least there was another "superpower" around back then, and we were doing it as a proxy war).  Could any human being be more wrong and more lacking in basic self-awareness or decency of any kind?  The Wall Street Journal news division may have some good stories once in a way, and often has top-notch graphics, but the editorial page has always been ridiculous, and has now passed into the stage of being a flaming bag of dog shit on your front porch.  I've got one bit of advice for you, "Don't put it out with your boots, Ted."

Somewhere, in some horrible, dark place (like the inside of his soul), Dick Cheney is laughing hysterically and saying, "He called the shit poop!" Fuck Dick Cheney and all his compatriots.
