Are you, like me, overdosing on all this mock outrage? Just the other day, a blast of untempered hypocrisy Bush administration almost caused a rift in the time-space continuum when they criticized Newsweek for damaging US interests overseas by disseminating inaccurate information and endangering lives on foreign soil. (The late night comedians made good use of that one, as you can imagine.)
And now Cheney's offended by Amnesty International? Right, Dick. 'Cos there's little or no proof of any U.S.-lead human right violations at Gitmo and elsewhere is there?
Of Amnesty International, Cheney says, "I frankly just don't take them seriously." Doubtless, neither will millions of loyal Cheney acolytes take the allegations seriously now. The Veep has given them permission to dismiss the world's most esteemed human rights organization and lump them together with all the other commie causes out to keep America from maintaining its (her?) rightful place in the world.
The hits just keep on comin'!
