Can’t blame this one on the press.

I’m disappointed the headline didn’t read “Democrats cower like abused foster children before the mighty and fearsome Dick Cheney.”

WASHINGTON — House Democrats on Tuesday narrowly managed to avert a bruising debate on a proposal to impeach Dick Cheney after Republicans, in a surprise maneuver, voted in favor of taking up the measure.

Republicans, changing course midway through a vote, tried to force Democrats into a debate on the resolution sponsored by longshot presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich.

Whew! Close call, eh, Dems? The Republicans almost forced you to stand up and suggest that Dick Cheney wasn’t the superbest!

I’d write more, but it would just contain words like, “you,” “fucking,” “miserable,” “pantywaste,” “chickenshit,” “craven,” “idiot,” “clam-faced,” “pussy-ass,” and finally the completely justified use of the word, “Defeatocrats,” followed up with the question, “how dare you call yourselves ‘representatives?'” Then I’d follow that up with another string of adjectives resembling the previous one, with some noteworthy repeats.

Democrats won 2006 promising to stand up to Republicans and the Bush administration. Count that as one campaign promise broken. The war, wiretapping, torture, Iran, the Constitution (which encompasses everything else)…Democrat politicians have told voters that as long as there’s a Republican out there who’ll call them cowards for not supporting everything George W. Bush wants, they’ll tolerate all Democrat voters calling them such.

There’s only one option left to us. May the primary challenges be numerous and fierce.

    Chris Rock

    I think he said “Mike Wallace”, though “Chris Wallace” also fits.

    I think you’re right.
