A few days ago on the Today Show, Pat Buchanan stated that if elected President, John McCain “will make Cheney look like Gandhi.” Every once in a while Buchanan is such an unfiltered loony that I have to think he knows something we don’t.
Maybe he was channeling fellow wingnut John Bolton, who later in the week endorsed McCain because McCain’s approach to Iran promises to be more “robust” than Bush’s has been? (In Bolton’s version of Newspeak, “robust” translates into “bombs away.”)
Watch the video and quake. The money quote comes at the end. Let’s hope we’ll never see Cheney barefoot and humble.
Update April 5, 2009: The video has been pulled from YouTube due to terms of service violations – which, while I respect people’s right to assert copyright, strikes me as pretty minor compared to the violations that Cheney orchestrated during his reign.
