Cheney’s Book Features Foreword by Satan

Great satirical article from Andy Borowitz at  “The Borowitz Report”.

At least I think it’s satire.  It could well be true…

Hat tip to my friend, Vanita, for making me aware of  this….

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) – Publishing circles were abuzz today with the news that the new memoir by former Vice President Dick Cheney features a foreword by an unusual contributor: Satan.

In his introduction, the Prince of Darkness said he rarely reads political memoirs but made an exception in the case of Mr. Cheney “because we had worked so closely together in the past.”

When he began to read the Cheney manuscript, however, the Lord of Misrule said he was “surprised” by what he found.

“Quite honestly, I couldn’t put it down,” Satan wrote.  “It was almost like a book I would have written myself.”

In what could be construed as minor criticism of the book, Satan admitted he was “miffed” that Mr. Cheney took total credit for the idea of invading Iraq, but added, “We were such close collaborators at the time, it may be hard for Dick to remember whose idea was whose – half the time we were finishing each other’s sentences.”

While Satan said he is unlikely to make a habit of writing introductions to books, he said that he could foresee making another exception in the future: “I’ve heard Rupert Murdoch is working on his memoir.”

Elsewhere, after Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) said God created last week’s earthquake and hurricane to punish America, God issued this rebuttal: “Actually, that’s why I created Michele Bachmann.”

Cheney: My book will have ‘heads exploding’ in D.C’

Who the hell wants to read this?

Haven’t we heard enough about this crew that destroyed our economy, sold us out to corporate power and oil company greed, screwed the Middle Class and workers, abused and misused those in our military, tried to ruin the environment and tarnished the image of America, possibly forever, with their lies, power grabs, unconstitutional actions and wars of choice?

All I want to hear is when they will be arrested, prosecuted, convicted and sentenced.  Enough of their lies, rationalizations and attempts to alter history…

 

When former Vice President Dick Cheney releases his memoir early next week, it may cause the second earthquake in Washington, D.C., this month.

Cheney: My book will have ‘heads exploding’ in D.C.

“There are gonna be heads exploding all over Washington,’’ when his memoir comes out Aug. 30, former Vice President Dick Cheney said in an interview that will air Aug. 29. Among the revelations: Cheney kept a resignation letter in a safe in case he had a heart attack or stroke.

“There are gonna be heads exploding all over Washington,’’ Cheney told NBC’s Jamie Gangel in an exclusive interview that will air on NBC’s “Dateline” at 10 p.m. ET Aug. 29.

In the book, titled “In My Time,’’ Cheney addresses a broad range of topics, including the attacks of Sept. 11; a secret resignation letter he kept in a safe in case he experienced catastrophic health issues, and his thoughts about former President George W. Bush and ex-Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell. The 46th vice president discusses those topics and more in his candid, unapologetic interview with Gangel, and he’ll likely have more to say when he appears live on TODAY with Matt Lauer on Aug. 30, the day his book hits stores.
