Team Six: From Cheney’s Secret Assassination Squad to Obama’s Super-Awesome Cleanup Crew

Ha ha ha! Mmmm, that’s good irony.

But wait. Cheney is bad and Obama is good, right? So… how will our moral, ethical, and intellectual superiors avoid giving The Evil Dick Cheney any credit for this? What rhetorical gymnastics will they perform to praise the brave men they once slandered as the instruments of Satan? How can they celebrate this victory for their beloved Obama without reversing themselves on the methods he used to achieve it?

Aw, they’ll find a way. If all else fails, they can just pretend they never said any of that stuff.

P.S. Keith Olbermann is an astonishing hypocrite. I know, I know, dog bites man… And as Michelle Malkin points out: “Guess we are all secret detention advocates now, eh?”

P.P.S. Mark Levin to Obama: You owe Dick Cheney an apology. Line forms to the right.

P.P.P.S. Nancy Pelosi is utterly consistent in her partisan hypocrisy.

P.P.P.P.S. Iowahawk: American pride is back out of the closet!
