Scoot, scoot, scoot!

Thank you, Wonkette.

No, no there isn't. Can we push him down a hill and see how fast he'll go? There are some great hills here in Seattle

I kept hoping to see a reenactment of the "Little House on the Prairie" episode where Laura shoved a wheelchair bound Nellie Oleson screaming down a hill. But, alas....

He looks like Dr. Strangelove! How appropriate.

Yes, there is something better. You speed up the video play back and add a soundtrack of Yakety Sax.

Anything better than a Wheelcheney?

Umm...a Wheelcheney with a funny hat and some racing stripes?

Injury while packing to leave? Proof of karma.

All hail the departure of Palpatine.

Wonder if his opinions on ADA compliance have changed?

(a) injured while shredding documents, is more like it.

(b) for me, the day is best marked by the visual contrast of the decrepit, scowling, invalid Cheney and the bright-eyed, cute-as-buttons Malia and Sasha.

Obviously we need a version where they speed up the film and they add some yakkity sax.

I don't know. The commentary around all of this bothers me greatly. It doesn't speak solely to Cheney - it speaks to Americans with disabilities across the country.. and how they are perceived.

Oh my God @ 16...
It's been a great day, but that video is a personal highlight. Thank you!

@16 - perfect end to a great day!

@12 - cheney spent the last 8 years ruining everything for everyone. FUCK HIM.

i meant @17 on that second bit there...

Check out Liz Henry's thoughts:

I imagined, and then later saw, Cheney being shovelled about from place to place behind the scenes, through freight elevators and dank back-hallways, maybe even a steam tunnel or two, carried ignominiously or bumped up backwards over some surprise steps no one thought about, and I felt a bit of schadenfreude there though I'm not proud of it. But I wondered, would anyone in power notice, a little bit more than they did before, what inaccessibility means, how excluding and alienating and humiliating it can be?

Dude should totally get a Hoveround.

@22. Thanks for that.

OMG! Thank you internet! I didn't believe that the Secret was true until now. Ask and you shall receive! Thank you 16 even though you did it for Lindy and not me!

That's a whole lotta evil concentrated in one li'l ol' hobbled space.

Mum! Dad! Don't touch it! ...It's EVIL!

Let me tell you something else. I've seen a lot of spinals, Dude, and this guy is a fake. A fucking goldbricker.

Damn @23, I was really hoping the Hoveround actually, you know, hovered.

Actually, I think his personality suggests a "Little Rascal"

Can you see Cheney at some perky happy retirement village?
Posted by Catalina Vel-DuRay on January 20, 2009 at 7:14 PM · Report this
Cheney will be tried for crimes - he best get his saggy ass to Dubai

And the chair gig was just so much added value - worldwide 600 million people were hoping for a tip over or major crash down stairs

Now to find a party ...

27, that is the last thing i would call cheney. he is guilty of much, but *not* that. he knows how loathsome he is, and he has kept himself well behind the scenes: "ignore that man behind the curtain." [wizard of oz]

What a way to start my morning... most of y'all illustrate my points perfectly. Proof of karma, huh?
