President Cheney - A question

President Cheney – a question, but just one. A really little one.

Alright I'm a nut that can be pigeonholed into just about any hate group you can think of; truther, life long liberal, Olbermann and Daily show watcher, tea drinker, Francophile (big word using French lover), sexual (gay) rights advocate, A.C.L.U. contributor, and PEACE promoter.

I hereby swear before your God, whom I will now accept as my personal savior, that I will conform to all "right" thought in the most good-good fashion, to be defined only by Rush Limbaugh. I will do this of my own free will. I will not only do this but I will convince the rest of the vast left wing conspiracy to join me in shutting up and doing what we're told. Not only that but we will use what remains of our nefarious powers to shut up the Libertarians too. We will come to every Republican meeting with the sole intention of shouting down the Ron Paul supporters. We will force Janeane Garofalo to flee the country and settle down in France. Keith Olbermann must now replace his Limbaugh denigrating clip with one of himself bouncing the same way, and end every show saying that water boarding is not torture but what those terrorists deserve.

Hollywood will stop being liberal and represent the "real" values of America. They will push for an amendment to the constitution banning gays from marrying. We will tell all of the people we turned gay that they need to lead straight and true lives now, and if they're going to continue being gay to stay the Hell out of the military.

The A.C.L.U. will be banned as an organization as soon as they complete work on the burn a flag and spend life in prison bill.

Abstinence only will not be open to debate, because all sex-ed along with evolution will be removed from all schools.

I will petition the Pentagon that it's only fitting that they rename Cheyenne Mountain Cheney Mountain, and that the Parks Department place the Great Decider in his proper place on Mount Rushmore.

I will grant you a few interrogative boons before hand. I will not ask about any of the inconsistencies in the 9/11 report even though it pains me like enhanced interrogation. I will grant that only the highest level officials who were the most recalcitrant were ever water boarded. I will further grant that enhanced interrogation is not torture, even though every one of your supporters who has said that it's not and gone through a tiny taste, has recanted the moment it started. I will grant that it was a legitimate attempt to protect the American people and not a calculated ploy to create justification for a war of aggression. I will grant you that it works and works much more effectively than simply talking to the terrorists. See, I didn't say suspect. I'm trying, really, really trying hard to get with the program. In fact when I'm done with this I'm going to go get a hair cut and throw out my jeans.

A sometimes published fantasy (you know magic and fairies, where the world makes sense) author. Accused of being a right wing nut because of being so far to the left that I've circled back again. Transplanted from the California Sun to the Hoosier (more...)
