If someone had told me a mere three years ago that Dick Cheney wasn’t the worst and most destructive politician (or indeed person) in America I would have laughed in derision. Ah, good times, good times…

Speaking of good times, here’s a photo of Cheney and Rumsfeld during their Nixon White House years:

Don’t they look happy smirky?

Both ends of the Axis of Evil right there. Well, a lot of the world revolved around them for a while…

Fux News is on it!

The Best and Brightest!

She’s too stupid to be a Nazi.


#17

I used to say that about Trump. Now, I’m not so sure.


#18

Can she not see Russia from her house?


#19

Now if only Sean Hannity will get waterboarded with the signed water jug.

Who?

Also, where?
