If Cheney Resigns "For Health Reasons," Indict His Ass Anyway!

See Dick smile. Smile, Dick. Smile... you arrogant SOB!

According to Sally Quinn, Senator John Warner (the former Mr. Elizabeth Taylor) may be the short-straw delegate to tell Dubya that Cheney has to go. And go now.

Removing a sitting vice president is not easy, but this may be the moment. I remember Barry Goldwater sitting in my parents' living room in 1973, in the last days of Watergate, debating whether to lead a group of senior Republicans to the White House to tell President Nixon he had to go. His hesitation was that he felt loyalty to the president and the party. But in the end he felt a greater loyalty to his country, and he went to the White House.

Today, another group of party elders, led by Sen. John Warner of Virginia, could well do the same. They could act out of concern for our country's plummeting reputation throughout the world, particularly in the Middle East.

For such a plan to work, however, they would need a ready replacement.

Also, Quinn's prediction for Cheney's replacement: Fred Thompson.

Everybody loves Fred. He has the healing qualities of Gerald Ford and the movie-star appeal of Ronald Reagan. He is relatively moderate on social issues. He has a reputation as a peacemaker and a compromiser. And he has a good sense of humor.

"Everybody loves Fred."

Pardon me while I puke.

Of course, "Fred The Sitting VP" (with his arm candy wife) is absurd. But so was Spiro Agnew, and his name is forever etched in the history books as twice-elected Vice President of the United States.

Exit Cheney? Ain't that a swiftboat kick in the pants?

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.

Sally Quinn's statement makes me shake my head in dispair. Have we truly come to this? The man is an actor. Jesus H. Christ.

And I'm sure the the vice president would also like to spend more time with his ever-expanding family.

Most revealing line in the whole tawdry article. Dick has to go because of his tolerance of homasexshul parenting. The Iraq lie-hype, the back room energy deal thing, the Plame outing, the consistency in stupid predictions about Iraq ("last throes"), Shooting friends in the face, duck hunting junkets with the judges who will decide your pending case, parsing of the Constitution to evade oversight, those are all just so much Clinton redux.

Hell, dump Cheney/ I hope they hang on to him! Why give the GOP a chance to "legitimize" itself by getting rid of its top criminal?
