Teens offer woman insurance against being egged, toilet-papered on Halloween @ 09:06 pm

I just finished watching the Vice Presidential debate (I'm a little behind) and I must say I'm really freaked out by Dick Cheney. That guy is a scary dude. I think he really distorted some of the facts. I don't think he said anything blatantly false, but he had a very unique way of spinning it. I don't trust that guy at all.

On another note Angie and I have to be up to 3:30am to get to the airport for a 5:45am flight. Suck! Here's hoping I won't be totally bored :)

It's really difficult, because I think that deep down, Cheney is really a good guy. I think he has a decent set of morals and beliefs, and that he really wants the best thing for this country, and more specifically, for his own family.

However, I think he's been shoved between a rock and a hard place. He's got an idiot president to cover for, and is a member of a political party that has contradicts his views on a few key issues.

In my opinion:
Bush = retard.
Cheney = misunderstood & weak willed.
Rumsfeld = motherfucking satan, yo.

have you looked at his record? his business practices? his involvement in various global trade groups? his personal actions while at Haliburton? his public statements on 9-11? hsi contributions to PNAC?

Cheney is a VERY strong, highly-manipulative, power-hungry hate-monger. he scares the shit out of me, far more than Bush ever could on his own. Bush is evil and his records prove it (read up on how much he fucked over investors throughout every business he's ever had) but Cheney is much, much worse.

Oh, I agree with you entirely. Well, mostly.

I'm just saying that if Cheney was say... the owner of a restraunt, and not the second-in-command, he'd probably be an okay guy. He might charge you a little too much for a hot dog, but he'd make up for it with a free soda. I think his position (both as VP and while with Haliburton) have forced him to make some tough decisions, and he's not always chosen correctly.

I'm not defending the guy. He's repeatedly proven he's a total cock, given the actions he's taken while in office. But I also think he's largely a tool of the republican party, and that accounts for at least *some* of his bad behavior.
