And this guy pretty much ran things...

I'm starting to wonder if Boy Blunder at least may have actually managed to keep shit from getting even worse.

Though this sounds like a joke, former Vice President Don Cheney and his doctors were legitimately scared about him getting assassinated via terrorists hacking into his defibrillator and causing a heart attack. So they turned off the wireless feature so nobody would kill him via heart hack.
Remember this is the same genius who during the First Gulf War tried to send military strategy tips to to his generals by sending tapes of Ken Burns' The Civil War.

You know, projection is the Republican pole star. If Cheney feared the heart hack, he must have had operatives working on the technology...

Over the last twelve years, we've gotten better at being terrified than any nation in the history of mankind.

And we've borrowed and spent more money chasing rank fears than any nation in the history of mankind.

Another reason for our grandchildren to despise us. We should be legitimately terrified of the retribution they will exact upon us thirty years from now. Their righteous rage is inevitable.

...but can you PROVE they didn't try just this, and he's an evil genius to escape their madcap misadventures?

I didn't think so!!

Boy Blunder could have not picked Cheney at all, y'know. But, this is all of a piece with Cheney's previously noted obsessive fears--wouldn't go anywhere without a biohazard suit, used hydrogen peroxide by the tanker load, etc. Ol' Deadeye Dick was afraid of everything, and it made him happy to make that fear contagious.

Your leadership at work and play.

Didn't Cheney pick himself for Veep?

"Didn't Cheney pick himself for Veep?"

Well, that was the story for public consumption. Even if Cheney had picked himself, it was up to Little Boots to give the final okay. That Boy Bush wanted a daddy figure with a neurosis over germs running the dark side for him says a great deal.

David Gregory just announced that he "gets" to interview Cheney who's plugging his book, and he's happier than a pig in shit.
