Parsing words is the liar’s last resort. So Cheney Boy had nowhere else to go to justify his absurd claim that the Iraq insurgency was in its last throes. “If you look at what the dictionary says about throes, it can still be a violent period, the throes of a revolution,” he said on CNN. Uh-huh. If you look at what it says about arrogant, it’s still spelled C-h-e-n-e-y, who also calls Gitmo a tropical resort kinda like a Club Med (“They got a brand new facility down at Guantanamo. They’re very well treated
down there. They’re living in the tropics. They’re well fed. They’ve got everything they could possibly want.”), B-u-s-h, who relishes calling himself “the war president,” R-u-m-s-f-e-l-d, who insists on the delusion that we’re not losing in Iraq, and R-o-v-e, who claims liberals wanted to “offer therapy and understanding” to the 9/11 terrorists.
