Dick Cheney is an SOB
When all is said and done, I think this administration will go down in history as the most corrupt ever. Every day we hear of new depths of unethical behavior by people who are entrusted with our lives. Dick Cheney heads the list of arrogant power mongers who don't give a rat's ass about the integrity of what our country stands for. According to this Washington Post article, Dick disagreed with justice officials about the illegality of wiretaps. Now that, of course, is not the problem. Everyone has the right to disagree. But, according to testimony of former deputy attorney general James Comey, Cheney's office retaliated by blocking the promotion of senior Justice Department lawyer, Patrick Philbin. Why did he block the promotion? Because Patrick raised concerns about the illegal surveillance that Cheney was pushing for. I'm sorry, this kind of retaliation seems to be commonplace in this administration. When will it stop? I think Cheney belongs in jail.
