This is from today's Progress Report ... when I saw the video clip of Cheney saying "So" on the Daily Show the other night I started yelling at the TV ... he has the darkest heart of any human alive ... and when he was asked in another interview about the Troop deaths reaching 4000 he said they were all volunteers ... like that made it OK to die in this bullshit Iraq war:

ADMINISTRATION -- HAGEL SLAMS CHENEY'S CALLOUS IRAQ COMMENTS AS NOT 'OUT OF CHARACTER: Last week, Vice President Cheney made notorious comments exemplifying his distance from the situation on the ground in both Iraq and the United States. When asked about the sour public opinion on the war, he replied "So?" And when asked about 4,000 dead U.S. troops, he said, "The President carries the biggest burden, obviously." But in two interviews this week on NPR, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) ripped Cheney's callousness towards the public and the troops on the ground. Hagel told Dianne Rehm on Tuesday that he didn't think the "So?" comment "was out of character for the Vice President." On NPR's On Point on Wednesday, Hagel again went after Cheney, saying that his sense of Bush's "burden" in the war is ironic coming from a Vietnam draft dodger. "There is a credibility gap here, at least a little bit, with the Vice President, as far as I'm concerned," said Hagel. "Here's a guy who got five deferments during the Vietnam War, said publicly that didn't work into his plans." The public agrees with Hagel. A recent World Public Opinion poll found that 81 percent of Americans believe that when making "an important decision," government leaders "should pay attention to public opinion polls; 94 percent want this done 'in between elections.'"
