Explain to me, please, why this isn’t a major, major hypocritical fuckup that needs some attention. Now, we all know that Cheney’s assault on Kerry for saying that, among other things, he would be more sensitive (to the concerns of our allies) was complete and utter slimeball. And we know it was hypocritical bullshit given that virtually every other Bush official including Cheney has described the need to be sensistive about various things in the War on Terror: including the very things Kerry was talking about.
But this latest instance came in the VERY SAME INTERVIEW in which he just got done bashing Kerry for the use of the word!!
i.e., the U.S. has to be careful with Sadr because it’s a culturally sensitive situation. Oh, but of course, Cheney’s “sensitivity” isn’t the “Kerry’s a wussy fag” code-word kind of “sensitivity.” No no, it’s a realpolitik, morally serious “sensitivity.”
How can such a giant douchebag get away with this when Kerry is repeatedly slammed because he was in Cambodia in easrly January instead of Christmas?
