I am not an entity

Dick Cheney has always been despicable and frightening, but he's becoming something out of a bad horror movie.

A few days ago in a spectacular bid to avoid another set of laws he doesn't agree with, he seems to be claiming that he doesn't exist. He said his office is not an entity in the executive branch. And that would make him a non-entity too. Meaning that he's a ghost, an invisible man, a spirit of the nether world. At many times in the past eight years, I guess he's been a little of each. Maybe he's just trying to cash in on some life insurance. Maybe he's referring to his approval ratings.

Or maybe, he's saying what he's been saying for eight years: "The laws you humans create do not apply to me."

Interesting ideas. I suspected there was a "cyborb exemption" included in a signing statement somewhere that exempts heartless SOB's running on Slick 50 from most laws.

(I know it's a cheap shot at the man's health, but according to the American Heritage Dictionary, the term does describe him: cy·borg (sī'bôrg') n. A human who has certain physiological processes aided or controlled by mechanical or electronic devices.)
