(11:30am) Fresh from the heart of the leftarded blogosphere:
Well, it wouldn't take a genius to predict that oncethis story made the wires, the seething leftarded "base" of the Democratic Party would be expressing their sadness that Cheney survived.
But to see it in their own words, as expressed at one of the rabid left's most popular gathering spots, The Huffington Post, is something else entirely.
Here are some excerpts (to be added to as the hours and days unfold):
"Cheney's spokeswoman said he was fine"

You can't kill pure evil. Like an exorcism you have to drive a stake through it.

They missed?? Dammit. I hope they try again before he leaves.

It's good to see this asshole living in the world he has created. All I can say is "better luck next time".

Jesus Christ and General Jackson too, can't the Taliban do anything right? They must know we would be so gratefull to them for such a remarkable achievement.
By: hankster2 on February 27, 2007 at 08:32am
It's just as well they missed. We wouldn't want to owe the Taliban such a debt of gratitude.
By: alpine on February 27, 2007 at 08:33am
Obviously they're fightin' this vile bastard over there, so we don't have to fight him here.
By: beaver on February 27, 2007 at 08:34am
If Cheney was seized by the Iraqi government ,tried,convicted, and hung by the neck until his freakin head popped off, then I would say Iraq is making " remarkable progress " .
By: lornejl on February 27, 2007 at 08:37am
Cheney escapes justcice again we live in hope the next time he faces the justice he so richly deserves.
By: Marhamptom on February 27, 2007 at 08:37am
Forget the bombs fellas, next time just expose him to a big magnet and turn his pace maker into an 'in body' IED
By: pinehermit on February 27, 2007 at 08:58am
Its a shame they missed the bastard.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. It would be such sweet, poetic justice if it happened. Sorry if that offends you who worship the devil of D.C.
By: TOMVICKERS on February 27, 2007 at 09:28am
If only Cheny and Chimpy traveled together. They could kill two turds with one stone. And then---President Pelosi! Neocons wake up screeming.
By: TOMVICKERS on February 27, 2007 at 09:35am
If Bush and/or Cheney were assassinated, BILLIONS of people worldwide would celebrate.That's a reflection of THEIR (lack of) character, not the celebrants'.Live by the sword, die by the sword....

Cheney's pure evil. The sooner he goes, the better.
By: bookish on February 27, 2007 at 09:52am
THANK GOD, WHO IN HIS GRACE PROTECTED DICK CHENEY! In precisely the same way He saved Adolf Hitler in an even closer call in 1944. He ain't the Hebrew War God for nothin', ya know.

From what I've heard Demons are immune to explosives and fires....Maybe lighting????
By: NorCal on February 27, 2007 at 10:10am
I am a pacifist. I am against capital punishment. I am against evil. But maybe, just maybe, if they had killed Cheney today, our world might have been a little bit safer for my children...
By: bmermaid on February 27, 2007 at 10:18am
SEE UPDATE 2 AT END --- THIS IS WHERE I LEFT OFF, AND HAD TO PICK UP AGAIN, BECAUSE HUFFPOST IS REMOVING THE PAGES OF THIS THREAD, STARTING FROM PAGE 19 BACKWARDS:
When you see your government being terrorists you think you should be also.What's worse strapping on a bomb killing yourself and a dozen or more other innocent people or dropping a 1000 pound bomb on a building and killing say 10 in that building 5 in the building on one side and 7 in the building on the other side 15 people in the street out front part of the other affected building collapse and kill another 20 and thirty get wounded from the blast and several others are hurt trying to help the injured and trapped.What I am trying to get across to you is that there is no high ground in murder, and war is murder!Everyone that participates in war is a FOOL or worse.Never ever trust stupid lying republicans

With cheney's heart condition all you would need is a well placed doughnut.

serial killers don't deserve special consideration just because they may be VP of the USA.
By: yappymutt on February 27, 2007 at 11:17am
2. Hmmmmm......y'know, the case is pretty strong that Cheney is not our legitimate VP. He's supposed to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. He hasn't done anything like that....quite the opposite, in fact, so his Vice Presidency is illegitimate ....
By: ChimpyMcCokespoon on February 27, 2007 at 11:18am
And I wonder how many people Gov. Bush executed for killing someone in the commission of a felony, even if they didn't start out trying to murder anyone?
By: ncjohn on February 27, 2007 at 11:29am
Well, well, well.
If "60 Minutes" or some other newsmagazine wanted to do a really interesting story on the state of culture in America, they would present all this to our citizens, and get Mike Wallace to hound down Queen Arianna and ask how in good conscience she can host such a site, and actually charge advertisers to promote their products and services there.
And if the MSM was really adventurous, they would explore how the talking-points and concepts of "justice" that are expressed by the rabid left in America could be so eerily similar to those of the jihadist murderers that comprise the Taliban (and their murderous bretheren in al Quada, Hezbollah, Hamas, etc.); whoops, I forgot... they are merely "freedom fighters" putting up a noble and justified "resistance."
And they could go further: by exploring how, as I have pointed out repeatedly at JQWorld, that the supposed advocates of "tolerance" and "diversity" and "inclusiveness" and "understanding" --- who can excuse the most vicious acts of murderous jihadists, and every form of human depravity --- could possibly harbor so much hate, such mind-numbing rage that is now referred to as "Bush Derangement Syndrome."
Yes, maybe, someday the MSM will explore all this...
*** crickets ***
UPDATE 1 (12:00PM): HUFFINGTON POST SHUTS DOWN THREAD LESS THAN 4 HOURS OLD
Unlike the other threads in which HuffPosters get to give voice to their Bush Derangement Syndrome for days on end, this thread --- which was posted at 7:59am on Tuesday, February 27 --- was closed at 11:43am. (And the entire last page, 19, was deleted in entirety)...
Perhaps the administrators at HuffPost are developing something resembling a conscience!?
One can only hope.
UPDATE 2: HUFFPOST ADMINS ERASING PAGES ON THIS THREAD!!!
As noted in Update 1, above, this thread at HuffPost was on page 19 and going strong at 12:00pm.
Rush Limbaugh got on the air at 12:07pm EST, he opened by talking about this thread... and read some of the more disgusting comments at HuffPost... and continued until 12:12pm. He closed by saying that he was going to have his people post a link to this (HuffPost) thread.
BUT WHEN I FOLLOWED THE LINK ON RUSH'S WEBSITE OUT OF CURIOSITY AT 12:42pm, see how he framed the issue, THE THREAD ONLY WENT UP TO PAGE 14 --- pages 15-19 had magically *disappeared!!!*
I then began to clip and paste the posts from page 14 backwards to the last page I left off on (page 9), before they could erase the rest of them. The break point in my thread here was the post at 10:18am (see red note).
As of this moment, 1:17pm, the HuffPost thread is now down to PAGE 9
If they deleted it, Rush's link (and mine) would go to a blank page. So instead of doing that, they are apparently removing the pages (if not the offensive posts), one by one, in true leftarded fashion --- to conceal the real outcome of their actions, "by degree," or "progressively."
UPDATE 3 (1:25pm): RUSH LIMBAUGH DESCRIBES DOCUMENTATION ON JQWORLD --- and MORE!!! (Though not by name --- yet)
Starting at about 1:16pm, I began emailing Rush with updates to this post... highlighting the fact that HuffPost admins were removing the pages... sent him two updates... then, at 1:25pm, Rush returned from break and mentioned exactly what was in my emails to him moments earlier --- and MORE: most notably, that the HuffPost admins are actually REMOVING INDIVIDUAL POSTS, starting with the FIRST ONE cited above.
"Cheney's spokeswoman said he was fine"
By: geoman77 on February 27, 2007 at 08:10am
Geez. You'd think the Taliban would be grateful to Cheney & Co. for diverting off into Iraq and allowing them to regroup and resurge. Ingrates!
By: Thalia on February 27, 2007 at 08:10am
RUSH: "By the way, a little update, ladies and gentlemen. Our first item in the program today: the Huffington Post, in their news section, posted a story on the attempted assassination of Dick Cheney today by Taliban commanders and terrorists at Bagram Air Force Base, leading to comments after the news story suggesting that it was unfortunate Cheney was not killed. We posted the link to that site at RushLimbaugh.com. They've now shut down the comments and they have eliminated some of the offensive ones. So if you go there now, you will not see the first comment -- and I didn’t share this one with you because it's the F-word. That's all it is. The first comment, the news that Cheney didn't die, that's gone, and it's been replaced with something sweet and light and so forth and so on. But they've stopped comments to that particular item in their news section and have eliminated, I'm told, some of the offensive comments hoping that Cheney dies or should have died or will die in the next attack or what have you."I know for a fact that this post by "Thalia" was actually stamped at least 2 hours later BECAUSE I WAS ON THE THREAD (under my 24th login ID since being "banned"... "WhereInTheWorldIsJQ") ... yet the HuffPost admins are apparently now manipulating what was said on their thread, and when.
I hesitate to use the word "unbelievable" in regards to anything the rabid left in America does, given what they've done in the last 4 years... but this almost is.
MINI-UPDATE: 1:37pm: HUFFPOST ADMINS ARE NOW DOWN TO PAGE 7; PAGES 8-19 HAVE MAGICALLY "DISAPPEARED" --- and the remaining "posts" are being removed, and replaced with less-offensive ones, with new time-stamps.
MINI-UPDATE: 2:04pm: Well, they're now down to page 6. And the number of "comments" has been re-numbered from "160" to "141." Pages 7-19 magically went away... along with all the offensive posts (typically about 25 per page)... and the inoffensive ones have been re-timestamped to provide the illusion of "nothing out of the place here... nothing to see folks, now move along...."
As my friend A.T. says... what a HOOT!!!
UPDATE 4: 3:10p: PROOF OF POST REMOVAL AND INDICATIONS OF TIME-STAMP MANIPULATION AT HUFFPOST
Here is a screen shot of what the thread looked like at 2:04pm, when there were "6 Pages":
And here is a screen shot of what the thread looked like about 10 minutes later, when there were "5 Pages":
And here is a screen shot of what the thread looked like about 10 minutes later, when there were only "4 Pages":
NEXT: Here is the front page of HuffPost at 2:04pm, when there were "141 comments":
NEXT: Here is the front page of HuffPost about 30 minutes later, when there were "76 comments":
Well, well, well indeed.
The Stalinists, the Maoists, the Hitler-worshipping Nazis and the others in socialist-fascist-totalitarian tyrannies were masters at this sort of thing... airbrushing out or otherwise "eliminating" anything that exposed their true nature.
In a precient stroke of timing, last Sunday's "60 Minutes" profiled how the Nazis, under suspicion of murdering tens of thousands of Jews at the Teresenstaph concentration camp, transformed it into a veritable "Jewish paradise," replete with cafes, playhouses, fancy clothes, etc... all to fool the Red Cross on the only one-day visit they were permitted to have. And as soon as the Red Cross left (satisfied), the Nazis resumed their murder.
What this thread --- and the lunatic leftists who expressed all these wishes for Cheney's death, in synch with the actions taken by the Taliban --- represented was a clear, timely view inside the leftarded blogosphere.
Well, right up until it was all airbrushed out of existence by Huffington Post administrators.
Those familiar with JQWorld know that I've been doing battle with, documenting, and lampooning leftist lunacy for a little over a year, primarily at HuffPost.
After all the threads I've seen, all the loonbatted comments (and conspiracy theories), I must admit --- the hundreds of posts on this thread at HuffPost astonished even me.
But what astonished me even more was the fact that the HuffPost administrators apparently didn't heed the lesson of Watergate and other scandals: it's not the crime or the action that nails ya, it's the cover-up.
Maybe one day the MSM will decide to cover all the America-bashing, Jew/Israel-hating, jihadist-appeasing, UN-worshipping, Bush Derangement Syndrome lunacy that goes on there. Let's hope.
LAST UPDATE: It seems Michelle Malkin and I were on the "same page" today... and she documented the actual screen-grabs of some of the most loonbatted posts, before the HuffPost administrators could purge them, and pretend they never existed... see here.
And be sure to check the time-stamps on these posts... as opposed to the "cleansed" version I documented earlier.
Oh, by the way ---- now, this HuffPost thread is down to 1 PAGE, and 12 posts... and the surviving posts are so sweet, so innocent... straight out of Disney!!! The first one --- the top of the list that anyone who links to the thread will see first --- NOW reads:
glad the VP is OK.How sweet... isn't it?
