A transcript of yesterday’s remarkably contentious CNN interview is up here (and some video here and here). I admit, I was most amused by the verbal sniping between Blitzer and Cheney over Blitzer’s fame relative to that of certain major terrorists (if only it was Wolf they had to catch!). But, as many have pointed out (including here, here, here, and here), the entire conversation is a reminder as to why many believe Dick Cheney feasts on the blood of the living and that his evil presence, unchecked, will one day wreck havoc with the very fabric of space and time. Neither of those things are true, of course, but his response to Blitzer’s pressing the issue of his gay (gay gay gay!) daughter’s pregnancy was a deathly stare most familiar to worshipers of Cthulhu. Oh, and Iraq? How things aren’t going so well? He told Blitzer, “I simply don’t accept the premise of your question,” a statement which calls into question whether Cheney has in fact already slipped loose the boundaries of our earthly dimensions, and dwells happily in cloud cuckoo land, where Mary Cheney is straight, Iraq is a flower of democracy, and fresh hearts are harvested for him daily.
Okay, that last part probably happens here.
