Jon Stewart and the Daily Show have found a new moniker to label former vice president Dick Cheney with after: 'America's Tragedy Herpe'
June 24, 2014

Whenever Dick Cheney drops into our TV sets and espouses doom and gloom about war and torture, you know Jon Stewart and Comedy Central smile with glee. He's an endless treasure trove of material for them and they never fail to use it wisely.

Stewart and his team of brilliant writers had a lot of material to work with after Cheney appeared on TV attacking Obama for pulling out the troops in Iraq that he bragged about himself in 2009, starting a new Super PAC and looking like Cliven Bundy and even mocked him for shooting a friend of his in the face during a hunting trip.

Stewart: There he is, America's tragedy herpe, Dick Cheney.
