HBO plans Dick Cheney miniseries

Former Vice President Dick Cheney

First Sarah Palin, now Dick Cheney.

HBO is developing a miniseries about the former Vice President based on Pulitzer prize winner Bart Gellman‘s best-selling book: “Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency as well as the PBS Frontline documentary, “The Dark Side.”

The cable network already has a miniseries Arizona Sen. John McCain’s failed Presidential campaign with a focus on the selection of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her bombastic rise from obscurity to political phenom.

What’s next?

    ‘The Penguin redux’ …!

    It’s not often that there’s a miniseries about one of history’s arch villains while still alive, well kinda so. I understand his heartbeat is undetectable by any known technology. So too, how on earth did he master that out of the corner sneer is beyond me? His facial expression in this photo is a dipstick sampling of his core persona; i.e., an sob incarnate. He didn’t have to sell his soul to achieve his life’s goals it was already mortgaged when he was born. So too he can now afford to live ‘forever’…well almost. His Dark Master will want him to square up the contract in time. : |

    “The Nightly News with Brian Williams was told that Former Vice President Dick Cheney may not have a heartbeat anymore due to a type of technilogical implant and valves that no longer “pump” exactly, providing the apperance he has no heartbeat. He also has to plug himself in every night. ” …extract from AboveTopSecret.com…link category Science and Technology

    A remake of “The Creature From The Black Lagoon?” Or will it be a documentary on the making of a Disney animatron?
