Let Them Eat Yellowcake

[via ThinkProgress]
[ABC White House Correspondent Martha] RADDATZ: Two-third of Americans say it’s [ie, the illegal immoral war and ongoing military occupation of Iraq] not worth fighting.


RADDATZ So? You don’t care what the American people think?

CHENEY: No. I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls.

Cheney is what Roosevelt used to call an "economic Royalist." Of course that smug self-appointed aristo, petrodollar-fat, bullet-fat Dick Cheney doesn't care what the American people think. Never has, never will. And because our Democratic representatives refused to demand the accountability in the name of which we chose them in a dramatic Change Election in 2006 that too many of them proceeded to betray he had no reason even to pretend to care.
