Dick Cheney, Man of Peace
Some people on the left like to employ profanity and overly broad generalizations in a desperate attempt to win arguments which the facts would not otherwise allow them to do. These desperate tactics are on display daily on left-wing blogs such as The Katrinacrats and Atrios.
One such common left-wing falsehood is that Dick Cheney is a warmonger. Plainly, this is false. Dick Cheney is a man of peace, in fact the ultimate man of peace, because he is a man of peace with a plan b if the whole peace thing doesn't work out. And plan B is war.
When you go to the doctor for a major operation, you want him to have a plan of action in case something doesn't go as expected. And peace is a wonderful ideal, but you want a leader who has a "plan b" as well.
