I think it’s time that we, as a country, take a serious look at the mental health of the vice president. When an aging loved one clings stubbornly to beliefs that fly in the face of reality, we’re inclined to look the other way, to make excuses, to quietly cover up the problem.
But when the person losing his grip is the vice president, it’s a different matter. It would be okay if we could just put him into ‘safe’ mode and have him send beeps back to the home planet every so often. But it’s not working out that way; he’s continuing to beam corrupted data to the gullible mind at Mission Control. And there’s that “only a heartbeat away” thing, too.
Righties will dismiss this as snark, but I’m serious. I think there is real evidence that Dick Cheney is actually, literally, senile.
Something to think about.
