Libtalker, Listeners: Dick Cheney 'Needs A Stake Through The Heart'
Liberal Radio: Why Won't Cheney Die?
On a day when touchy state-run media types are busy denouncing any reference to the late Senator Robert Byrd's (D-WV) Ku Klux Klan activities, it's interesting to see what happens when the shoe's on the other foot.
With Dick Cheney undergoing treatment over the weekend after a recurrence of heart troubles, the restraint expected of the right with Byrd's passing apparently doesn't apply to the former vice-president. Liberal talk radio's only real regret is that Cheney continues to survive rather than suffer the fate they believe he deserves.
From Friday's syndicated Mike Malloy Show:
MALLOY (05:13): the cause of his latest health problem is not clear. I think I know, but (long pause) he's done too much cannibalism, drunk too many cups of blood!
MALLOY (51:51): No, I'm not, uh, going to feel anything but intense gratitude, uh, that this miserable bastard has stepped off this earthly coil! Uh, really! And I'm sure on a much lesser scale when I die, there will be some of you right-wing flip tops who will feel the same way - I frankly don't give a damn!
But um, um - no - Cheney is responsible; Cheney is a murderer; he's a killer; he's a torturer; he is evil personified! He is a walking mass of, um, horror and when he's gone, this planet will be cleaner!
While reaction to the late senator's passing is examined syllable-by-syllable by the left's partisan sensitivity screeners, expect the hate emanating from the own side to once again be ignored.
Have these Byrd-brains ever done it any other way?
