Dick Cheney: Free Speech
at Five Hundred Dollars a Plate

The thing that's been completely left out of the Dick Cheney "how dare anyone dither when it comes to blowing up our enemies and rewarding our torturers" speech is the context in which that speech was given.

The Villagers don't like to talk about specifics when it comes to the beltway dinner circuit at which so many of them feed.

This dinner, minimum $500.00 a plate, was to given by the self-described, and I am not making this up, "non-partisan organization" The Center for Security Policy. Dick Cheney was speaking at their 20th anniversary dinner, at which he received the, hold back your breakfast now, the "Keeper of the Flame" award. Cheney was introduced by, among others, Don Rumsfeld, a former awardee himself. You know who else has this prize sitting on a shelf in their well-appointed Georgetown dens?

Joe Lieberman
Duncan Hunter
James Inhofe
Paul Wolfowitz
Newt Gingrich
Ronald Reagan
Jon Kyl
Caspar Weinberger

Okay, then. So why would anyone not expect a bowl full of neocon crazy in his acceptance speech? He's among friends.

Why can't the press be honest? And how, at this point in history, has that become a completely rhetorical question?


  1. "Jerk" blends seamlessly with "Chicken".

    God god, he can't even get arrested in his own district.

    What a patheon of sorry soulds.

  3. Great photoshop, Blue Gal.

  4. On the beltway circuit, a $500-a-plate dinner is cheapo. $1000- to $5000 is more the norm.

    Did you catch the interview in which Alan Grayson observes Cheney flapping his jowls & asks-- then what happened?

    Did he turn into a bat & fly away???

    I heart Grayson (D-FL)

  5. Only you, BG.

    Only YOU.

    Thanks for keeping up with this world-wrecking crowd.

    It's nice to know where they are meeting and for how much (all at taxpayers' expense too!).

    If only we knew in advance.


    And how, at this point in history, has that become a completely rhetorical question?

  6. '...the "Keeper of the Flame" award.'

    Makes perfect sense, being that it was crack elements of the 'conservative' persuasion.


  7. He certainly has kept the flame, hasn't he?

  8. that must have been some party - duncan hunter? that's one person that might make glenn beck look smart

  9. I have published an Open Letter to Eric Holder, the US Attorney General, asking him to either properly investigate the 9/11 Attacks or charge me with libel for accusing Dick Cheney of murdering at least 175 innocent American citizens that fateful September morning. Please read the letter, and show your support by asking that the charges be filed against me if the government will not conduct an open investigation to find the true criminals responsible for murdering nearly 3,000 of our fellow countrymen.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
