Dick Cheney 'Honored' By Darth Vader Comparison

During an appearance on Laura Ingraham's radio show last week, former Vice President Dick Cheney said he enjoys being compared to Darth Vader, but that isn't the only controversial statement in the clip. Ingraham claims that after Vader, Chewie is the second most interesting character in the series. Perhaps her assessment was influenced by who's most likely to rip your arms off.

Ari Schwartz: Dark Lord of the Snark

Cheney is an ass.

First of all, Vader actually succeeded in subjugating a once democratic society, where Cheney only half-assedly gave us TSA (way to go, guys.)

Secondly, Cheney only managed to kill tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of people. Vader managed to actually go whole hog on the genocide thing.

Thirdly, Vader cut off his own son's hand for questioning him. Cheney hardly even rebukes his daughter for being a homogay IN PUBLIC.

Gotta step it up, Cheney. The Dark Lord finds your lack of initiative... disappointing.
