    Cheney On The Ballot In Massachusetts

    Cheney On The Ballot In Massachusetts

    Or so it seems. Democratic Representative Mike Capuano is running in the Democratic special primary for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. While running against numerous other high-profile Democrats, such as Attorney General Martha Coakley, Capuano has put Dick Cheney at the center of his campaign strategy.

    In an advertisement (below), which is running frequently on television, Capuano urges voters to select him because he is the only one who can stand up to Dick Cheney:

    “Because there’ll always be people like Dick Cheney and the need to stand up to them.”


    It will be interesting to see how this strategy plays out, considering that Cheney is not on the ballot in the Democratic primary, will not be on the ballot in the special general election, and is not Vice President anymore.

    This is either the most irrational example of Bush-Cheney Derangement Syndrome, or the most brilliant strawman argument since Obama demanded that conservatives grab a mop to help Obama clean up Bush’s mess.

    If I were a Massachusetts Democrat, I would vote for Capuano, because the one thing we are lacking in Washington, D.C., is someone willing to blame Bush-Cheney for our problems.

    I actually saw this during the parade and just started laughing at the Cheney bit. The only thing that will amuse (or sicken) is that some people in the room were like "damn right" to his Cheney comment…which made me laugh more.
