So MSNBC commentator Lawrence O'Donnell said of Cheney's grand-slam speech today:
This guy just has to lie from beginning to end through his setup of his opposition's position in order to advance any of his ideas at all, none of which have any proof to them at all.

Sez you.

He talked about "sleaze" and "Spiro Agnew" and mischaracterizes what Cheney said, and to illustrate what Cheney didn't any proof of he then spews speculation that Bush and Cheney "knew" the 9/11 attacks "were coming" and that they were going to use airliners and did nothing.

At best, he's fighting what he has defined as "lies" with what by his own definition are also "lies". I know the memo O'Donnell speaks of. It was some vague information that looked pretty important only in hindsight.

O'Donnell doesn't have any proof that Cheney doesn't have any proof, so I guess he's lying too. Of course, a lot of the evidence (TIK #1) Cheney is talking about is in the memos the Obama administration has selectively decided not to release.

So he's basically saying, "don't go listen to Cheney. Hisssssssssssss!!!!! He's EEEEEEEEEvil. Hisssssssssssssss! He's a Liar™! Hissssssssssssssss!!!" (do I detect indirect shut uppery again? And remember when Gollum convinced Frodo that Samwise was bad? Lotta hissin' goin' on there, too.)

O'Donell is on the level of the "Truthers".

Go read Cheney's words and Obama's words yourself and then watch this rabid guy's reaction and you decide who is "lying".
