Cheney Lies

Dick Cheney is a pathological liar. He claimed at one point during last night's debate that he had never met John Edwards until the debate, despite the fact that Edwards is a senator and Cheney is, as vice president, also the president of the Senate. So how can he explain this photo of the two of them standing together at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2001, and the fact that Cheney specifically addressed remarks to Edwards at that breakfast? Also, Edwards escorted North Carolina's other senator, Elizabeth Dole, to her swearing in as a new Senator in 2003 by, you guessed it, President of the Senate Dick Cheney. Is there nothing so trivial and unimportant that Cheney won't lie about it?

Of course, Cheney can also lie about more substantial matters, like stating that he never claimed there was a link between Iraq and 9/11.

You think that you're such a smart girl
And I'll believe what you say
But who do you think you are, girl
To lead me on this way?

Lies!
Lies!
I can't believe a word you say
Lies!
Lies!
Are gonna make you sad some day

Note: I’m tired of clearing the spam from my comments, so comments are no longer accepted.

I heard that when wife Elizabeth refreshed Cheney's memory after the debate, he smirkily replied "Oh Yeah" indicating that he had indeed remembered their meetings.

This comment was obviously pre-planned in an effort not only to highlight Senate absences but to dismiss Edwards as forgettable and to imply that he was a Nobody. Edwards was smart not to take the bait and leave it to reporters to group this untruth with the more serious declaration that Cheney had never verbally implied a link between Saddam and 9/11.

Intentional or not, it seemed to work well for Edwards.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
