the best offense

poor dick cheney's "offended" at amnesty international:
"for amnesty international to suggest that somehow the united states is a violator of human rights, i frankly just don't take them seriously," he said in an interview that aired monday night on cnn's larry king live.

a spokesperson for amnesty international replied:
"it doesn't matter whether he takes amnesty international seriously. he doesn't take torture seriously; he doesn't take the geneva convention seriously; he doesn't take due process rights seriously; and he doesn't take international law seriously. and that is more important than whether he takes amnesty international seriously."

hey, dick! on behalf of amnesty international supporters everywhere - thanks for the free publicity, numbskull.

me, i'm offended by foul language on the senate floor. i'm offended by letting utility company lobbyists make energy policy. i'm offended by some fat pantsload in the vp's office using the defense department as his personal atm. i'm offended by a government that 'loses' $8.9 billion in war appropriations while saying we don't have enough resources to up-armor every humvee..

i guess that's why i'm not a 'values' voter. and you know what offends me the most? that this draft dodger dares to show his face after putting our soldiers in harms' way without the right planning and the right resources to keep them safe. it's memorial day, cheney ... stay outta my face.

other than that, of course, i like the guy ...
