Yesterday Dick Cheney emerged from his lair to join Sean Hannity in his lair, where the former vice president/current burrower demon tackled tough questions, like why President Obama is such a wild-eyed kowtowing "radical" (answer: no, no, that's the 'you decide' part).
Cheney also weighed in on the upcoming trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed…
Cheney said holding the trial in a lower Manhattan courtroom near ground zero will make Mohammed "a hero in certain circles, especially in the radical regions of Islam around the world."
"He'll be able to go in whenever he's up on the stand and proselytize, if you will, millions of people out there around the world including some of his radical Muslim friends and generate a whole new generation of terrorists," Cheney said.
That is exactly the problem with people who want to gin up extremist anger. You give them a national platform and they just use it to spread their inflammatory messages. Terrible terrible idea, all around.

The 9/11 Never Forget Coalition (a.k.a. a bunch of fucking teabaggers) were in New York City yelling and screaming and holding their breath this past weekend, partially to protest the upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in the city.
But mostly your entertainment. And, as always, they did not disappoint…
When are these people going to get their own reality show on MTV?I'll bet Black Guy with Megaphone would totally get it on with Lady with Tea Bags on Hat in the communal pool. (I hope Racist NRA Dude with Flag doesn't find out!)
