I accidentally left the TV on NBC after local news a couple of nights ago and that useless sack of farts Jay Leno had Dick "Fuckin'" Cheney on plugging his self-serving (is there any other kind of political memoir?) autobiography and Leno, feeling very bold, as if Cheney might order him killed on the spot for such temerity, dared ask about the torture. In effect, Cheney says, "well, it weren't nothing we don't do to our own people!" As if putting your agents through controlled waterboarding during their training were exactly the same as being kidnapped and threatened with death by foreigners who actually do have power of life and death over you.
Leno, humbled, chastened, dropped the one softball he managed to lob with a "wow, see? I didn't realize that" and moved on to some pointless jibber jabber about Palin.
