On inauguration day, I learned an answer to a question I never even knew I had.
The question was, “Exactly how hated do you have to be for people to make fun of you even if you’re in a wheelchair?”
To me, the image was fitting, in a way reminding me of Citizen Kane, as hidden cameras capture footage of Charles Foster Kane’s withering final years.
Turns out, I was being charitable, as others offered these comparisons:
(Though yes, it’s easy to imagine Cheney shouting, “The hippies will always lose!” – actually, most of Lebowski’s dialogue.)
Though I’m sure Bush looked at him and thought of only one man:
“C’mon, Dick, read mah mind!”
“That’s not the way it works, George.”
So. Goodnight, Mr. Cheney. May your spiffy new wheels carry your dark soul far, far away from us all.
