    It’s a sorry mess for the remaining, and dwindling number of Republicans that the two poster boys for their party are Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney, two of the most nationally unpopular and polarizing figures in America. Rush has to continue his daily rants and divisiveness, he’s got a multi-million dollar contract to do just that, but Dick Cheney?

    When Cheney left office he had an approval rating hovering around 13%. It’s doubtful his “Torture is Good Tour” is doing much to improve on that mark.

    The same shadowy, fearful man, who spent eight years in “an undisclosed location”, now is splashed across the media on a daily basis spinning his version of his terms. It’s a great puzzle that he would think he’ll be effective. It’s challenging to find anyone that has less credibility than Dick Cheney. Volumes have been written, and proven, about his flawed logic, his false claims, his absurd predictions, and now he wants to be taken seriously.

    It’s understandable that he’d like to re-define the policies he helped create, supported, and played a direct role in. After all, it was Dick Cheney that led the charge to start a needless war based on 100% false claims, that’s caused over 4,000 American deaths. It was Dick Cheney that pushed for sacrificing our moral standards and lowered America into the sewer of torture as an official policy. He’d like to put a smiley face on his role in those acts, but creating a label like “enhanced interrogation” is like calling a bank robbery a “forced withdrawal”. It is what it is.

    His daily arrival on our television sets only serves to remind us what was wrong with our nation, which was given a course correction in the 2006 and 2008 national elections. Smarter leaders in the GOP realize this, but their party is in such disarray they can’t find a way to simply tell Dick Cheney to return to his “undisclosed locations” and let us get on with fixing these messes. So a man with a 13% approval rating and zero credibility will continue to show up on our television sets. I suspect Americans would rather see more Billy Mayes than Dick Cheney.
