The Dark Lord and the Minions

The crazies at CPAC got a surprise visit from their evil master. Dick "the dick" Cheney was greeted with cheers:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney just made a surprise appearance at CPAC after his daughter, Liz Cheney, finished her speech.

The crowd went wild, standing up and cheering for several minutes before he began talking. One man yelled, "Four more years!"

"Knock it off!" Cheney said. "A welcome like that is almost enough to make me want to run for office again. But I'm not gonna do it."

He spoke briefly and offered his predictions for the November mid-terms.

"2010 is going to be a phenomenal year, and I think Barack Obama is a one-term president," he said to wild applause.

These people are seriously nuts. The man is a self-admitted war criminal who did more damage to America during his eight years in office than any other individual in history. The man who came right out and said that he wanted more waterboarding (in clear violation of international law), and that shrub was "too soft" on terrorists.
But I shouldn't be surprised; the CPAC people are merely better organized tea partiers. They started their conference off with jokes about Obama's use of a teleprompter...being read from a teleprompter.

Yet another reason for health care reform: maybe we could get some of these barking loonies on the proper medications.
Added: Damn, why is it that almost every time I write political snark, Rachel Maddow riffs on the same topic...she does it so much better than I do.
