Cheney, Russia and Democracy

As though this wasn't funny enough,


U.S. Warns Russia to Act More Like A Democracy
Dick Cheney, of all people (and I use that term loosely), is now seeing fit to criticise Russia for their treatment of dissidents:
Cheney accused Russia of "unfairly and improperly" restricting the rights of its people and using oil and gas as "tools of intimidation or blackmail" against neighboring countries
That Dick Cheney feels comfortable saying such words is absolutely hilarious: Russia is using oil and gas as tools to intimidate countries. The Bush administration, on the other hand, prefers to use the good old fashion tools to intimidate other countries: nukes.
