Dick Cheney is a booliboo.

Booliboo? Don’t run to your dictionary to look it up. No such word. I made it up.

That’s what you can do when you enter Cheney’s fantasy world. On his unlit planet, Dorothy’s yellow brick road is more authentic than Interstate 71. Pinocchio’s nose doesn’t extend but grows backward into his skull. The invasion of Iraq would lead to a peaceful conquest in a few weeks.

Booliboos resort to Orwellian newspeak, the patron of duckspeak in which it is perfectly OK for apples to fall up from trees rather than to the ground below, Newton be damned. Torture is the untorture of enhanced interrogation. Besides, only sissies kiss the enemy on both cheeks. Patriots never have to apologize for waterboarding, rectal feeding or stuffing people in cramped boxes until further notice. How else can we insure America’s safety?

So, yes, Cheney is a booliboo who was once a heartbeat – today, not even his own! – away from the presidency. Thinking about that close call is torture enough for the rest of us.

    The Dispatch must be booliboo central after reading that fluffy, rah-rah piece on Kasich today. Too bad most of it was stretching the truth or ignoring the truth. But voters believe anything. Also a joke was Morrison’s whining about corporations abusing power and silencing news organizations with slapp suits. Hmmm… no mention of the NEO news organization threatening to sue Plunderbund over showing the Kasich interview video where the governor acted like a two year old, slouching and scowling. Some speech must be freer than others. And what did the Dispatch expect on a crusade to empower corporations over people and democracy? Did they suddenly discover Audrey II is eating them in a political shop of horrors the rest of us face everyday? There is reality, then there is the insular world of the Dispatch and GOP.
