Dick Cheney doesn't like to lie. But if his country's security is at stake? Then he'll lie a fat three-year-old with his hand caught in the cookie jar. And with human blister-agent Howard Dean subjecting Republicans to the sort of attacks Saddam Hussein would have launched if he hadn't forgotten where he put his sarin and anthrax stockpiles, Cheney moved his integrity to an undisclosed location and launched one of his biggest whoppers since claiming to have not had intrapersonal relations with John Edwards until the 2004 vice-presidential debate:
Big swinging Dick on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes: "I've never been able to understand [Howard Dean's] appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best I can tell."
As best as we can tell, Cheney hasn't figured out this Internet thing yet: it's not that hard to find evidence of Howard Dean's nine victorious campaigns. Also, is Cheney telling RNC chairman Ken Mehlman to go fuck himself? Sure seems like it:
Ken Mehlman on Fox News' Fox & Friends: "We gotta get ourselves beyond this point where when we disagree about politics, we call the other guy names."
