Cock Cheney

Interesting pre-2004 election article from Rolling Stone about Dick Cheney.

People who find Cheney's extremism as vice president surprising have not looked at his congressional voting record. In 1986, he was one of only twenty-one members of the House to oppose the Safe Drinking Water Act. He fought efforts to clean up hazardous waste and backed tax breaks for energy corporations. He repeatedly voted against funding for the Veterans Administration. He opposed extending the Civil Rights Act. He opposed the release of Nelson Mandela from jail in South Africa. He even voted for cop-killer bullets.

Wow this Cheney guy's resume really stands out among his colleagues. I wonder why someone like George Bush would pick someone like Dick Cheney to be his vice-president. Maybe birds of the same feather really do flock together.

And, you know, he doesn't pretend to be a good guy. And people eat his bullshit up nonetheless. It's like, "oh, look at Dickie, at least he's honest." Yep, honest about being a jerk.
