According to Darth Cheney, the only time opinion polls reflect any the feelings of intelligent Americans is when the polls are in favor of BushCo's pitiful excuses for policies. As such, we should not be surprised that a man named Dick would respond to a poll that indicates that two-thirds of Americans now think the war was not worth fighting with an answer that shows the same utter contempt for Americans and the administration shows for the Constitution, the truth and anything that does not belong in the demon world. ABC may have inadvertently done Cheney more justice by editing his response to make it look as if he just said "So" since the full response wasn't really much better.

He then implied that when the American public changes their opinion when given the actual facts on which to based an opinion, it would be ludicrous to consider a corrected course of action:

"Q Two-thirds of Americans say it was not worth fighting.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: They ought to go spend time, like you and I have, Martha. You know what's been happening in Iraq. You've been there as much as anybody. There has, in fact, been fundamental change and transformation, and improvement for the better. I think even you would admit that.

Q Let me go back to the Americans. Two-thirds of Americans say it's not worth fighting, and they're looking at the value gain versus the cost in American lives, certainly, and Iraqi lives.


Q So -- you don't care what the American people think?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: No, I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls. Think about what would have happened if Abraham Lincoln had paid attention to polls, if they had had polls during the Civil War. He never would have succeeded if he hadn't had a clear objective, a vision for where he wanted to go, and he was willing to withstand the slings and arrows of the political wars in order to get there. And this President has been very courageous, very consistent, very determined to continue down the course we were on and to achieve our objective. And that's victory in Iraq, that's the establishment of a democracy where there's never been a democracy, it's the establishment of a regime that respects the rights and liberties of their people, as an ally for the United States in the war against terror, and as a positive force for change in the Middle East. That's a huge accomplishment." []

He went on to say that he is certain of victory, though he didn't clarify if victory just means bigger profits for himself and his carpet-bagging buddies.

Cheney then noted the economy was going through a rough patch, grabbed his pole and borrowed the Sultan of Oman's 60-foot royal yacht to do some fishin'.
