The Evil Vice President Sweepstakes

It looks like Dick Cheney favored bombing Iran because of the country's nuclear program. Why am I not surprised? The more Cheney opens his mouth -- about torture, about national security, about foreign policy the Dick Cheney way -- the queasier I get. Was this guy really just a heartbeat away from the White House? God help us all.

He's really hardening his reputation as the Great Lord of Darkness. He's even got the perpetual scowl and snaggly, discolored teeth to pull it off.

Just for fun, I thought I'd compare vice presidents: the amiable Joe Biden to the more-than-slightly terrifying Dick Cheney. Who is considered more evil? Well, according to Google, Cheney has what appears to be an insurmountable lead, unless Biden goes nuts and decides to rape and slaughter an entire convent of nuns.
