The Delaware Liberals keep it classy!

Delaware Dem, one of the bloggers on the Delaware Liberal, has noted that former Vice President Richard Cheney is in bad shape and might be dying:

Dear Lord. I digress to say that if Sarah Palin’s death panels and health care rationing did exist, Dick Cheney would be an obvious candidate for being ordered to go home and die. But of course, he still lives, and that is ironic, for it disproves further Republican lies about the health care reform, but like I said, I digress. So how long will Cheney survive with this device?

Of course, while the Obaminable health care bill passed, it hasn’t really been put into effect yet, so DD’s statement is wrong: it disproves nothing.

But while most of her article was strictly above board, she just couldn’t help herself at the end:

Dick Cheney is not in his 30’s. To live much longer, he will probably require a heart transplant. And I would think that he is not a good candidate for one. So yes, Dick Cheney is dying. And because only the good die young or quickly, I expect his dying will be as horrible and long lasting as his life has been.

Vice President Cheney, last time I checked, left ofice, peaceably, when his term ended, but some people just can’t escape their bitterness.

But DD’s original is actually kind of mild compared to some of the comments. Nevertheless, I’m not disappointed, because I expected nothing more.

  1. Not that I’m condoning that kind of nonsense, but…

    Dana if you’re a big fan of his how about you go live among his handiwork in Dimock, PA? Make sure you drink the well water when you’re there!

  2. Since when has Cheney been drilling for gas in Dimock???? Can you make the direct connection between Cheney and Dimock??? A very direct connection that would be first hand knowledge and running the operation.

  3. Yorkshire, as CEO of Haliburton he had to know how hydraulic fracturing worked. Even with the knowledge that it destroys all of the land and water around the well, he still helped to push for an exemption from environmental legislation for the natural gas industry. If you want to see real hatred just wait until the heavily armed hunters of NEPA can’t drink their own well water anymore.

  4. Shall we dig up how the fine people of this blog reacted to Ted Kennedy’s illness and death?

  5. When he died, CSPT posted a piece that he died and may he rest in peace. I know, what a horrible, gut wrenching, hate filled tribute.

  6. Sure thing Naggy, do it and let us know what you find. I’m willing to guess it won’t be what your fancy paints. In fact, I think York’s memory is right on the money.

  7. From that thread:

    DNW: “As far as mistakes go, it was the people of Massachusetts that made the big mistake, when buying into the propaganda emitted by the Kennedy family publicity machine, they first mistook him for a man of integrity and personal honor.”

    John H.: “I have to say Ted did as much damage to my kind as he possibly could.”

    Dana: ” I shall list only what I see as his positive accomplishments:

    1 –”

    Art Downs: “Ted Kennedy was no champion of Liberty and a man driven by a lust for power.”

    JohnC.: “Kennedy was a creep who couldn’t do the right thing when everyone was looking.”

    and: “When bad people burn, I say burn baby, burn. He was a prick.”

  8. i will say that living next to a crash cart can really change your life’s focus. i am fairly certain that cheney is probably not fretting about what others write or say about him at this point.

    “the great equalizer”. nope, not obama or the progressives…

  9. From DL:

    Dick Cheney is not in his 30’s. To live much longer, he will probably require a heart transplant. And I would think that he is not a good candidate for one. So yes, Dick Cheney is dying. And because only the good die young or quickly, I expect his dying will be as horrible and long lasting as his life has been.

    Real classy in comparison.

  10. Hey, naggy, ever take things out of context? Like my statement? Do you want to try again, like publishing my full statement? Or would that defeat your reason for partially quoting my statement?

  11. Like I said, when he died, this was posted:

    Senator Ted Kennedy Dead at 77
    Posted byYorkshire on 26 August 2009, 9:29 am
    May he Rest in Peace

    I didn’t say what the comments were, just what CSPT Posted.

  12. I didn’t say that, but he is the ONLY one who had the influence of the vice president’s office over policy that also had that knowledge.

    It boils down to this. He put profits ahead of people’s health, economic future and way of life. Because of that, I will shed no tear when he bites it.

  13. I’m glad to see that a liberal will be sensitive when Cheny goes. Seems to be a common affliction like the lady who wouldn’t lift a finger if she saw Limbaugh on the floor with a heart attack.

    Sorry, but I read your inferences as this being all Cheney’s fault.

  14. Here’s the whole quote, apparently cross-posted at Patterico:

    Being a Christian first, a Conservative second and a Republican third, I have to say Ted did as much damage to my kind as he possibly could. But, as a Christian, I cannot help but feel a great sense of sorrow for Ted. The man’s life bore witness to the man’s character and I would never wish for anyone to go through what I believe Ted is going through right now.

    Since I believe in the afterlife as fervently as I believe “I exist,” Ted’s death does indeed pain me greatly.

    I just grabbed one sentence, for brevity. While the overall message wasn’t one of slavering hatred, my point was that part of your post seemed like kicking a man when he’s down. Kennedy was a political opponent. He wanted to build a better country for the benefit of all Americans. If that ‘damages’ your kind, then so be it.

    The original article here seems to focus on a much smaller percentage of Delaware Dem’s message.

  15. “He wanted to build a better country for the benefit of all Americans. …”

    You do have a sense of humor after all.
