Dick really is a dick.

CNN.com - CNN Political Ticker Cheney blasts anti-Petraeus ad at GOP fund-raiser «
"Like most Americans I admire the integrity and the candor that General Petraeus showed in his hearings before Congress," Cheney said during a fund-raiser for Missouri Republican congressman Sam Graves. "The attacks on him by MoveOn.org in ad space provided at subsidized rates in the New York Times last week were an outrage."

The Times said last week that MoveOn.org paid $65,000 for the page — the normal rate for an advocacy ad from a non-profit group, according to newspaper spokeswoman Catherine Mathis. The newspaper had no additional comment Monday.

Cheney was one of the leading advocates of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and remains one of the now-unpopular war's most outspoken supporters. Fellow Republicans have used the MoveOn.org ad to attack Democrats who now support withdrawing American troops from the conflict.

"It's bad enough when politicians turn their backs on a war they voted for and supported when it was popular," Cheney said Monday. " But no one in politics,regardless of party, should hesitate to object when an American soldier at war is mocked and insulted."
My, my, Dick, how times have changed. It seems like only yesterday you were partying with the rubes from the Heartland at the GOP convention in NYC. You remember, dontcha? Those purple band-aids mocking John Kerry's three Purple Hearts sure were all the rage, weren't they?

Delegates mock Kerry with 'purple heart' bandages
Democrats: GOP 'mocking our troops'

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Delegates to the Republican National Convention found a new way to take a jab at Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's Vietnam service record: by sporting adhesive bandages with small purple hearts on them.

Morton Blackwell, a prominent Virginia delegate, has been handing out the heart-covered bandages to delegates, who've worn them on their chins, cheeks, the backs of their hands and other places.

Blackwell is president of the Leadership Institute, an educational foundation he founded in 1979. According to its Web site, the institute prepares conservatives for success in politics, government and the news media.

I guess it's OK to mock them after they come home from war. Hypocritical douchebag.
