The hardest substance on Earth: Diamonds, right? Wrong. The hardest substance on Earth is the skull of a New York Times editorial writer.
Evidence? This. I'm only going to skewer the second paragraph, because after that, it's just meaningless.
Virtually from the time he chose himself to be Mr. Bush's running mate in 2000,
Because Bush can't make a decision on his own, he's an automaton.
Dick Cheney has spearheaded an extraordinary expansion of the powers of the presidency -
The evidence is?
from writing energy policy behind closed doors with oil executives
As compared with writing health care policy behind closed doors? Let's also ignore the fact that the Supreme Court said this was legal. And do the Democrats in the House and Senate also have to release a list of everyone they meet with to formulate their initiatives?
to abrogating longstanding treaties
Like the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with a nation that no longer exists and in a world where a rogue nation like North Korea could insanely launch a nuke our way on a whim?
and using the 9/11 attacks as a pretext to invade Iraq,
The pretext to invade Iraq was its failure to abide by the 1991 cease fire. It became an issue because Saddam was supporting terrorists. Abu Musab Al Zarqawi was in Iraq before we invaded.
scrap the Geneva Conventions
This just in: the Geneva Conventions don't apply to terrorists who wear no uniform, target civilians, etc. Has anyone there actually read the damn things?
and spy on American citizens.
If they are working with al Qaeda or its affiliates on putting another huge hole in New York. Next time it might be the Times building -- not that that would be a big loss.
The New York Times editorial board: No brains required.
