Emergency rooms on each coast will need to prepare...

... for this is sure to cause tics, strokes and heart attacks everywhere but the heartland:

DickCheney.jpgDick Cheney has finished his memoir, according to his daughter, and the book is scheduled to come out on Aug. 30.

Liz Cheney said that the former vice president's manuscript was turned in at the beginning of the month. She said the book, currently being edited, will be "very straightforward," with "a lot of in-depth analysis of really critically important issues." Cheney's memoir, "In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir," is being published by Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster run by Republican strategist and former Cheney aide Mary Matalin.

...

A favorite of the right, Cheney is widely regarded as among the most powerful and controversial of vice presidents and his book is the most anticipated vice presidential memoir in recent history. His daughter, who collaborated on the memoir, said in a recent interview with The Associated Press that "In My Time" will show his "sense of storytelling and sense of humor," but also that he has "very strong views and a very clear perspective."

I'm thinking it'll rocket to the top of best seller lists and remain there for a very long time. 

You can bet'cher bippy I'll be gettin' a copy.

Cheney Brings the Awesome. This book will rock the Progressives and set the record straight on the "Bush Years" once and for all.

"I'm thinking it'll rocket to the top of best seller lists and remain there for a very long time." It's already in the Top 100 at Amazon.

I'm sure the lefties are busy right now in their parents' basements, photoshopping the cover of the book, like they did with Bush's book. It's the sort of thing they do best.

Truth-tellers with character and love of the Old America will always be "controversial."

It's tough if you are a leader and not pretending to be a messiah, or something, during these confused days.

God bless Dick Cheney

I don't agree with Cheney on quite a few things, but I have huge respect for him. One may almost say that the amount of integrity a man has in inversely proportional to Democrats' assessments of one's character. Obviously, Cheney has it in spades.

Caesar Augustus:

This entry assumes that coastal leftists have the requisite attention spans even to read a novel-length book, which in my experience is a false assumption.

That said, I'm very much looking forward to this item. Bush's "Decision Points" was in various respects fascinating but truth be told Dubya's writing style was very tame. Cheney, on the other hand, I strongly suspect, will proceed to knock it out of the park and in the process to tear a few new ones.

James H:

I understand it is only to be read in the light of the New Moon.

Now that I have gotten my token Dick Cheney book out of the way, I'm at least mildly interested in this. Particularly, I'd like to see how much he writes regarding the unitary executive, an idea popular with Republicans when Republicans are president and popular with Democrats when a Democrat is president.

The Bush administration put forward some strong ideas in this regard, particularly under the rubric of the president's commander-in-chief authority. I expect at least some of this originated with Cheney's office.

Ceasar Agustus,

An excellent point. Here on Wizbang I have already had to deal with a leftist who insisted on critiquing a much more compact volume [Liberal Fascism] which he had not read.

DC was the best VP I've had the pleasure to watch in my lifetime.

Personally, I'll never understand why he didn't take Leahy on a Snipe hunt and come back without him. Dick Cheney knew how to move things and get it done. He also didn't take any BS from libtards sitting down.

Some people think Cheney had a hand in the anthrax attacks of September 2001, to whip up grounds for war on Iraq on WMD fears.

One of the anthrax letters was sent to Leahy's office.

Conveniently, they had one scapegoat (Hatfill) proven innocent, then years later the "real" culprit committed suicide.

Brad:

The only cure for a leftie is to have his/her head spin off its axis. Paging Dr. Cheney.

I'm psyched for this book. Dick Cheney is a wonderful man. I met him once, and he is remarkably soft-spoken, and I was a little shocked by his somewhat soft handshake--that's neither here nor there, but I was expecting a strong firm handshake, given his strong character and seriousness. He is a really gracious guy, and I'm very pleased to have met him.

Off with the libs' heads!

Chico never seems to address Bill Clinton's draft dodging, ever notice that? Nor does he have much to say about the current Chickenhawk in chief. But any conservative that doesn't live up to his demands on military service sure gets comment from him. There's a name for that behavior isn't there?

ryan a:

Just kidding. For some reason I thought it out already. Well, I'll get it when it does come out. I find reading all of these memoirs and bios to be fascinating, all things considered. Hopefully Cheney had a good editor, because so many political bios (left and right) absolutely suck.

It would be a good idea to get someone to review it here at Wizbang--and then ask someone like hyperbolist or James H to publish a review as well. Just an idea...

"Some people think Cheney had a hand in the anthrax attacks of September 2001, to whip up grounds for war on Iraq on WMD fears."

Ok, that's a passive way of putting forth an argument if I have ever seen one. "Some people"? Are YOU one of those people who believe that Cheney had something to do with the anthrax attacks, or are you just passing around hypotheticals for the hell of it? If your main source for this is the article you linked, your case needs a bit of work. Just sayin.

It's like the south park 911 truther episode, 20% of the people in this country will believe anything. Hell I bet 20% of the people in this country believe Obama is a post partisan, post racial, healer of the earth.
