In a Dither

Hey kids! By now you’ve all heard Deadeye Dick Cheney’s remark about President Obama and the war in Afghanistan. To refresh your memory:

The White House must stop dithering while America’s armed forces are in danger.

Well, kids, that got me thinking. Why dithering? Who says dither these days? Then it hit me. I know why dithering came to Deadeye Dick’s mind. I remembered something I had seen on the news during the Chimpy George W. Bush administration. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the video, so I used the stills and added the dialogue so you could understand what was going on.

See? Dithers & Company! They had a little pet name for the Chimpy White House!

    You know, I though of Mr. Dithers!

    Thx, Nonnie. I smiled so hard my cheeks hurt. πŸ˜€

  2. reminds me of a blogger who had McCain yelling “23 skiddoo and the bees knees !” at the hags on The View… the best part is that Cheney meant it earnestly, as you said who even uses a word like that except an old outta touch white guy who lives in caves and has no clue how his own language is even spoken these days…working in the shadows as he might say. Funny, they say bin Laden (fellow cave dweller) speaks a stilted form of Arabic that most people don’t warm to as well….hmmmm..

    • mick,
      the funniest part is that we know he has speechwriters. he didn’t come up with that himself, so he probably told his toadies to make sure there were lots of verbal sneers in it. maybe he requested dithering. or maybe frank luntz did a focus group to see what word would be the nastiest. yeah, that must be it.

  3. The nerve of Dithering Dick…. who draft dodged Vietnam, started 2 failed wars & inserted Halliburton & KBR (the rape company) into the whole mess.

    I like what Grayson had to say about him….

    “Speaking on Hardball, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) denounced Cheney’s attacks on President Barack Obama, who posited that Obama was “dithering” in failing to endorse a troop surge.

    “I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes, because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking,” Grayson quipped. “But my response is this: He’s just angry because the president doesn’t shoot old men in the face. But by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just then turn into a bat and fly away?”

    Grayson rocks!

  4. Wasn’t it treason to criticize a President about war policy, just a year ago?

    I sort of remember that when it was retired generals and admirals criticizing, they were accused of subverting the C-in-C. Now, of course, the ethics seem to have changed a bit.

    Hmmm …

  5. Cheney needs to look in a mirror. However, Barry does need to end this thing. Matthew Hoh has it right.

    “I have lost understanding of and confidence in the strategic purposes of the United States’ presence in Afghanistan,” Hoh wrote in his resignation letter, dated Sept. 10 but published early Tuesday. “I have doubts and reservations about our current strategy and planned future strategy, but my resignation is based not upon how we are pursuing this war, but why and to what end.”

    Now my blood pressure is all out of whack. Can you post some Sarah please to get my blood redistributed?

  6. Good one, nonnie.

    Next I’d like to see a comic where Bush gives a motivational speech extolling the virtues of picking up all the poop left behind by his administration.

    • hi props!

      i think chimpy is all motivated out after his big $19.95 speech at the scam circus. besides, he’s still busy trying to master picking up barney’s poop. his administration’s poop would take his learning how to operate a bulldozer.

  7. That’s some brilliant cartoon work you did, Nonnie. Dithering. Tres 1940’s.

  8. Dammit. I was trying to post a picture, but I suck!
