Quotes of the Morning: More Dick

"I only wish I'd seen this one yesterday morning. Yesterday we had a quote by Dick Cheney and one by Howard Dean. Today we have Dick Cheney talking about Howard Dean. Dang."

"Howard Dean is 'over the top,' Vice President Dick Cheney says, calling the Democrats' chairman 'not the kind of individual you want to have representing your political party.'
'I've never been able to understand his appeal. Maybe his mother loved him, but I've never met anybody who does. He's never won anything, as best I can tell,' Cheney said in an interview to be aired Monday on Fox News Channel's 'Hannity & Colmes.'
Dean was elected governor of Vermont five times between 1992 and 2000."
-Associated Press, June 12, 2005

"Let's get this straight.. 'Dick' Cheney, while commenting on how uncivil Howard Dean is, made a comment regarding his mother? You mean that Dick Cheney, who one famously stated 'f*ck you' while on the Senate floor and who called a reporter a 'major league a**hole' is lecturing about civility (while blatantly lying about Dean winning elections)? Its true.. In the post-9/11 world irony is dead."

“Defense officials from Russia and the United States last week helped block a new demand for an international probe into the Uzbekistan government's shooting of hundreds of protesters last month, according to U.S. and diplomatic officials.
British and other European officials had pushed to include language calling for an independent investigation in a communique issued by defense ministers of NATO countries and Russia after a daylong meeting in Brussels on Thursday. But the joint communique merely stated that ‘issues of security and stability in Central Asia, including Uzbekistan,’ had been discussed.”
-Washington Post, June 14, 2005

“See? We ARE fair and impartial. The United States will block investigations of human rights investigations for any and all countries, not just our own (unless of course we are looking for an excuse to invade. Then we care a lot).”
