For Immediate Release
Office of the Vice President
December 22, 2008

The Annotated Interview of almost former Vice President (and soon to be convicted felon if there is a speck of justice in the world) Richard Cheney by Jon Ward and John Solomon, The Washington Times (well-known brown-nosers and sycophants.)

Vice President's West Wing Office – (the one with the man-sized safe)


Q: Sir, let me ask one first, (that is after all why I’m paying to be here…) literally talking about your own public service (pardon if I fawn), seven presidencies. (Seven? No wonder things are so screwed up!) You left one presidency before where the President afterwards, Gerald Ford, became much more popular than he was when he left office.

(Say what? Try writing these questions down first.)

And I'm kind of curious, (I’m purported to be a journalist, after all!) as you look at this presidency ending now and where you are in popularity, (the crapper…) what you think will happen (besides the huge ‘Thank Gawd They’re Gone’ parties world-wide)— how history might look back at this presidency (Yours) and President Bush compared to where he is now? (deep in the crapper, kind of like my ability to formulate a proper question.)
 

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, I think there is a parallel in a sense with my experience during the Ford years in that President Ford made a decision that was extraordinarily unpopular at the time when he pardoned former President Nixon.

(But that ain’t nothing compared to Iraq, Afghanistan and the economic disaster we perpetrated, so forget parallels.)

He suffered from it, (Awww…) and he dropped to about 30 points in the polls in one week, as I recall. (About twice what I’m at now.)  By the time of his passing a couple of years ago, opinion had totally turned on that. 

(So, I’m really looking forward to when I kick the bucket; my popularity should surge like crazy.)

In fact most people by then, even many who had been very critical 30 years before, were in agreement that, in fact, it was a good decision;

(Just don’t ask me to name names cuz I made that up)

it was the right thing to do from the standpoint of the country.

(Not THIS country, but we’re hoping that it works again,  if you know what I mean.)

I don't want to compare the pardon to what we've been doing.
