It's funny 'cause it's true

Via Josh Marshall, there's this little gem from Dick Cheney.

If the Democratic policies had been pursued over the last two or three years, the kind of tax increases that both Kerry and Edwards have talked about, we would not have had the kind of job growth that we've had.

Question, does Dick Cheney have any clue what's going on outside of his bunker? You know, that Bush is the first president since Hoover to preside over negative job growth? You'd think he'd try to at least, you know, draw attention away from Bush's abysmal economic records.

Also, as Marshall points out:

Cheney seems to be caught in some sort of weird mental causality loop since what Kerry and Edwards support is a repeal of the 2001 Bush tax cuts (or most of them). So if their policies had been pursued over the last three years that means that the cuts simply never would have happpened at all, not that there would have been big tax increases.

He doesn't really mention the unintentional hilarity of Cheney's comment, though.
