"In My Time"

That’s the title of Dick Cheney’s new book, news and a preview picture of which was released yesterday, causing the liberal media to pretty much lose its collective mind.

Chris Matthews said that he hoped the release of the book would lead to Dick’s daughter Liz Cheney learning how to pronounce the family’s last name, as she has been pronouncing it incorrectly for years. Seriously, he actually said that. Seems she grew up bearing that name and never learned to pronounce it correctly. Matthews believes he is the only one in the country who knows the correct pronunciation, and he keeps correcting people on his show. I think he has a mental problem. He fawns over every guest he has, and then corrects them on trivia.

“You are the best in the business. I cannot tell you how much I admire you. You are the journalist of journalists. Nobody is better at this than you, but you don’t know how to pronounce Dick Cheney’s name.”

I never watch Rachel Maddow, but Bob Somerby watches her so that I don’t have to, much as I watch Hardball so that you don’t have to. I read his Daily Howler so that I can keep up to date with her insanity, and I want you to trust me on this; compared to Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews is the epitome of sanity and intelligence.

According to Somerby, Maddow is freaked out by the picture on the cover of the book, noticing that it is the identical pose that Obama struck when announcing the death of Osama bin Laden. She notes that the picture was taken in the same spot, that he is using the same stance, wearing the same color suit, shirt and tie that Obama wore on that occasion, and that he even has a flag pin in his left lapel as Obama did. Her surmise is that Cheney is trying to make us think that he is the one who killed Osama bin Laden with the publication of this picture.

Her rant is delusional on so many levels that it hardly bears debunking, but consider that Osama bin Laden’s death was announced just 19 days prior to the release of that publicity shot. Does she really think that the publisher can PhotoShop the picture, do the artwork for the cover, print the cover, and release the news item all in less than three weeks? There is absolutely no question that the dust cover for that book, including the picture that she is so freaked out about, was printed long before Obama stood on that spot announcing the death of Osama bin Laden.
