okay, it's easy to make dick cheney jokes right now. i did. scroll down.
but the sickening thing about this - AGAIN - is how democrats see this as another indictment of a corrupt administration, and republicans see this as nothing more than a personal issue.
and, AGAIN, they're both full of shit. as usual.
you see, democrats see this as another indictment of a corrupt administration - and that's only because dick cheney is not a democrat. and republicans see this as nothing more than a personal issue - and that's only because dick cheney is a republican.
if this were bill clinton, the sides would have been reversed.
in fact, they were.
when clinton shot all over monica lewinsky's dress, republicans saw it as another indictment of a corrupt administration, and democrats saw it as nothing more of a personal issue.
clinton was impeached for what i believed was a personal issue (and if you think it's about perjury, then you're completely blind about it). let's see what happens to cheney for what i think is basically the same thing - something happens, there's a cover-up, the politician is allowed liberties not given to a common citizen, more lies are put out, there's a ton of spin, some fumbling because that never works and, overall, the whole thing is overblown for more than what it's worth. and then people make snap judgements based on political affiliations.
a logical person would say that cheney's accident was just a personal issue, just like clinton.
at least i hope it is for cheney. but the more i hear about this, the more i'm getting leery.
but what is clear, as usual, is that both parties are full of shit.
and so are the media. they've at least been ballsier about this, standing up to the administration by people on both sides of the coin, but it's more about how the government has handled divvying out the information instead of the information. but that's just the media making the story about them. i'm not saying it ain't a story; it's just not the big one. the government covers-up and lies. shocker.
idiots all around.
