DadNews Daily – All Cheney Edition

Dick Cheney

Big Daddy Dick Cheney got all up in then-President George W. Bush’s grill when he was trying to get the Prez to pardon Scooter Libby. I have to admit, I wonder why Dubya didn’t issue the pardon. Not because Cheney was all up in his grill (isn’t that a phrase that white people need to stop using? Yes, it is) but because… well, why wouldn’t he just do it? He did a lot of other shit. (Huffington Post)

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was unwilling to say that the maniacs who believe that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and is therefore not a citizen, or “birthers” as they are apparently called (I hate giving them a name), are nothing more than conspiracy theorists. She says that the “birthers”, or “lunatics” as I like to call them, are merely “uncomfortable” with President Barack Obama, who she says is “an American president who seems to be afraid to defend America.” She gives an example about Daniel Ortega and how the President should have reacted more strongly to his obnoxious speech, but mostly just spouts GOP Conservative Hive Mind catchphrases. James Carville, after babbling in that weird accent, eventually hits the nail on the head at the end of this video of his appearance with Lizzie C. on the Larry King Show. The video is worth watching, although it will probably make you mad. (Huffington Post)

Last Cheney item of the day: the Dick himself may have to testify in the CIA investigation. Ooo. That could be interesting. (Politico)

DadNews Daily – July 14, 2009

Newspaper Boxes in Florida

Some news about Dads, with our take on the issues at hand:

White House Retracts: First Lady’s Father Not Buried at Burr Oak

The story: “The White House, correcting earlier reports, says Michelle Obama’s father is not buried at a cemetery where workers are accused of digging up and dumping bodies but at a cemetery nearby.”

Our take: Oh, leave the First Lady alone, Fox News. I’m not sure if this is something they’ve been flogging or not. But I’m sure Fox did something annoying. They usually do. (Fox News)

Insanity Defense for Man Accused of Killing Father

The story: “Dail W. Brown Jr. believed that a ‘far-flung syndicate’ of government and private power brokers had infiltrated society, his lawyer said yesterday. When he discovered that his father, Dail W. Brown Sr., played a role in this evil syndicate, the son confronted his father, tumbled down some stairs with him and accidentally killed him at their Vienna home.”

Our take: Yeah. I’d say that sounds like he’s insane. (Washington Post)

Michael Jackson’s father: Singer couldn’t have done 50 concerts

The story: “Joe Jackson is stoking controversy again. The father of late pop icon Michael Jackson, who died of undetermined causes June 25 at age 50, told ABC News today that his son was not physically capable of performing the 50 shows slated for his This Is It comeback concerts in London. “I was worried about his health because all the shows that I’m seeing—no artist can do those many shows you know, back to back like that,” said he elder Jackson, who’s been criticized for comments he’s made in the wake of his son’s shocking death. “I knew Michael couldn’t do all those shows.”

Our take: Joe Jackson the singer-songwriter (“Is She Really Going Out With Him?“, “Steppin’ Out”, et al) should wage a massive media campaign to force Joe Jackson, the creepy weirdo who used to beat the crap out of Michael Jackson and is now doing everything he can to make money from his corpse, to change his name. Joseph Jackson, perhaps. Anything but Joe Jackson. Because really, who wants to share a name with such a major league jerkoff?

Fox News Says Obama Admits To Being An “Imperfect Father”
