Hornswaggler | The culture, the humor, a bit of the sports, not so much the politics, and the workplace distraction

Hornswaggle is an alternate spelling of hornswoggle, an archaic word that means to bamboozle or hoodwink. I take my pronunciation from the late Harvey Korman in "Blazing Saddles" --

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, conmen, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers and Methodists!"

Thursday: Mus' be Dick Cheney day

So I guess Cheney's going to give his big speech today. He must be really worried about how things are going for him to increase his already ridiculously high media exposure like this. As Will Ferrell said, he's on TV more than the Sham-Wow guy.

The funny thing is the American people and major pundits don't seem to give a shit about torture, so he'd be better off laying low. Instead he's digging himself deeper. It's increasingly clear that he authorized torture in a bid to prove a nonexistent link between Iraq and al-Qaida, and I highly doubt that, as more evidence comes out, there will be anything to vindicate him.
