He's Absolutely UnAmerican to the Core

ABC News - Five years after the start of the war in Iraq, Vice President Dick Cheney offered a positive assessment of the war today and called last year's troop surge a major success. "On the security front, I think there's a general consensus that we've made major progress, that the surge has worked. That's been a major success," Cheney told ABC News' Martha Raddatz.

When asked about how that jibes with recent polls that show about two-thirds of Americans say the fight in Iraq is not worth it. "So?" Cheney replied, "So?"

"You don't care what the American people think?" Raddatz asked the vice president. "No, you can't be blown off course by polls," said Cheney, who is currently on a tour of the Middle East.

A government of the Cheney, by the Cheney, and for the Cheney? Clearly "the people" don't matter anymore.
