I Like Dick Cheney

I know that everyone has a lot of fun making fun of Dick Cheney. But maybe that just means he’s cool. I mean, if a guy is a popular target for dumb college kids and entitled hippies, then maybe he’s not that bad of a guy.

I wasn’t a fan of the man until 2004, when he bucked party Orthodoxy and declared his support for gay marriage. This was a neat little thing that endeared me to him. He’s a shrewd, intelligent politician who is able to accomplish things and wasn’t a bad Secretary of Defense.

The worst thing he did as VP was get hammered and shoot his best friend in the face. I mean, if I had a quarter for every time that happened. He was surprisingly open and unapologetic about his role in U.S. policy and was just an interesting guy.

So, Dick, I guess you did a good job, I guess.
