There hasn't been this much sick gloating at the Democratic Underground since Jerry Falwell passed away. The cause of the latest DUer outbreak of venom is the news about former Vice-President Dick Cheney's heart problems. The DU administrator, David Allen, recently posted absurdly detailed rules about what one can say about Barack Obama but apparently it is open season to indulge in venomous hate there when it comes to conservatives such as Dick Cheney.
Here are just a few of the poison pen tidbits posted by DUers on the subject of the health of Dick Cheney:
The mother f---er should have his bones picked by Vultures.
I hope Dick is in pain and drowning in his own fluids.
don't worry, he'll shoot someone in the face and then steal their heart while they are writhing in pain from the buck shot.
I hope he dies a slow death. The amount of pain due that man would be no where close to what he deserves.
It's not really surprising that the DUers are posting about Cheney with an utter lack of class. They are just taking their cue from other leftwingers such as liberal radio talk show host Mike Malloy who recently had this to say about Dick Cheney:
... I'm not going to feel anything but intense gratitude that this miserable bastard has stepped off this earthly coil! Really! And I'm sure on a much lesser scale when I die, there will probably be some of you right-wing flip tops who will feel the same way - I frankly don't give a damn!
But no - Cheney is responsible. Cheney is a murderer. He's a killer. He's a torturer. He is evil personified! He is a walking mass of horror and when he's gone, this planet will be cleaner!
