Time for some Chunky Monkey

Cheney says Saturday was one of the worst days of his life. But it didn't quite reach the crappiness of the day he realized, in all their enormity, the consequences of invading Iraq: likely well over 100,000 killed unnecessarily. These people were "peppered" with "spray," so to speak, under false pretenses; while the fondest neocon hopes of a Pax Americana in the Middle East would fail to materialize; as would the more modest hopes of a stable, US-friendly puppet regime right in the oil heartland. Global instability, torture, American armed forces stretched to the breaking point, growing domestic resentment, spiraling debt, a final deathblow to the staggering & wheezing notion of American military omnipotence. And again, the 100,000+ dead. No, the day he realized that, it was time for a Lil' Debbie snack cake binge.
