The audacity of Dick Cheney never ceases to amaze me. Check out what the Veep says in response to a question by ABC's Martha Raddatz about 2/3 of Americans thinking the war was not worth fighting.

Raddatz: Two-thirds of Americans say it's not worth fighting, and they're looking at the value gain versus the cost in American lives, certainly, and Iraqi lives.

Cheney: So? <sinister smirk>

Raddatz: So -- you don't care what the American people think?

Cheney: No, I think you cannot be blown off course by the fluctuations in the public opinion polls. Think about what would have happened if Abraham Lincoln had paid attention to polls, if they had had polls during the Civil War. He never would have succeeded if he hadn't had a clear objective, a vision for where he wanted to go, and he was willing to withstand the slings and arrows of the political wars in order to get there. And this President has been very courageous, very consistent, very determined to continue down the course we were on and to achieve our objective.

The Lincoln references just kill me. If there's one thing you gotta admire about Dick Cheney, it's that he sincerely doesn't give a f*ck what you think.

Elsewhere on Planet Cheney:

He linked Iraq to 9/11,

...said the economy is going through "a rough patch",

...and went fishing.

...and he still sincerely doesn't give a f*ck what you think.
