Is Cheney Allowed to Drink Hard Liquor?

Whether his doctors sanction it or not, we now know dick Cheney drinks. Get a load of this item that was in an Editor and Publisher article yesterday about Brit Hume’s interview with Cheney: “CNN today reports that Armstrong had told CNN she never saw Cheney or Whittington ‘drink at all on the day of the shooting until after the accident occurred, when the vice president fixed himself a cocktail back at the house.’” The sombitch drinks. He drinks even though any man with his serious medical conditions should not drink. Cheney’s health problems: 1978 - Heart attack #1 (age 37) 1984 - Heart attack #2 1988- Heart attack #3 1988- Coronary bypass surgery 2000 - Heart attack #4 2000-Coronary stent placed 2000- Abnormal heart function 2001- Unstable angina 2001- Coronary angioplasty 2001- Cardiac defibrillator implanted 2005- Popliteal artery aneurysm repair Has episodes of gout Has been treated for skin cancer Was arrested twice for drunk driving when he was young And yet, the man drinks. And he drinks when he’s stressed. There’s very little else we need to know about Cheney and booze. Cheney lies and Cheney drinks. Falsus in uno falsus in omnibus. It’s easy to assume Cheney lies about when he drinks, how often he drinks and how much he drinks. The LA Times has an article this morning about the besetting sin of the Bush administration, “Critics See a White House Failure to Communicate”, which has been perfectly epitomized by the way the Vice President’s office handled the Whittington shooting. Not surprisingly, LA’s main newspaper chose a favored movie quote in its headline. In “Cool Hand Luke” (1967) the Captain of a prison camp chain gang (Strother Martin) says the line to Luke (Paul Newman) when Luke won’t bend to the Captain’s will. The Captain beats Luke within an inch of his life and then says, “What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach, so you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. And I don't like it any more than you men. “ Although the MSM, Democrats, some Republicans and most of the people living in the United States are frustrated by the Bush administration’s communication failures re the war in Iraq, Katrina, illegal wiretapping and now the Cheney shooting, Cheney is frustrated by his failure to communicate that he’s boss. Like the Captain in “Cool Hand Luke”, Cheney can’t understand why he has failed to convey that what he says goes, that he doesn’t need to abide by any rules any time, anywhere, anywise. And like the Captain, Cheney is prepared to strongarm, intimidate and bully to get his point across. The two top men in our government have a drinking problem. One is stupid and drinks because he is failing to communicate that he’s been anointed by God to run the world. The other one drinks, drunkenly shoots people in the face and refuses to communicate anything to anyone except that he is the power behind the one who was anointed by God to run the world. The world is laughing at us. I wonder why.

What many people do not lmow is that Cheney is a clone, not a real human. I have 7 reasons why this is true on my site.
