I’m sure John Stewart will have something to say about this on Tuesday, but let me direct your attention to a nice quote from Dick Cheney about the escalation of troops in Iraq.
“If the United States doesn’t have the stomach to finish the task in Iraq, we put at risk what we’ve done in all of those other locations.”
Of course, this really isn’t surprising coming from the same guy who also said:
“The notion that, somehow, developing the resources in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Reserve requires some sort of vast despoiling of the environment up there is just garbage.”
And who also said:
“Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue but it is not a sufficient basis for a sound, comprehensive energy policy.”
What a dick.
