Format: Hardcover
DICK CHENY'S DIARY is a quirky SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE style satire in which Cheney, the Bush administration (and a few democrats) are portrayed as feckless frat boys bent on getting as drunk as skunks and scoring as many babes as possible. Sometimes satire is the only effective commentary in a society unwilling (or unable) to hold its leaders accountable for extreme corruption and moral atrocities. Kriesman's book also fills a major void left by the mainstream media in their failure to explore the personal motivation of a group of men who used their eight years in office to (let's face it) rob the US Treasury for the benefit of their friends and themselves and in doing so virtually destroyed the US economy. When the media makes no attempt to analyze what these events, the public can only draw the conclusion they are motivated solely by ruthlessness and greed - which is clearly the explanation Kreisman favors.

During the whole eight years Bush was in office, I never once saw any mainstream commentary on the relationship between Cheney - who was obviously running the country - and Bush - who was obviously a nincompoop and not allowed to make any decisions. Kreisman plugs this gap in the historical record with a few scenes straight out of FIGHT CLUB. Likewise the mainstream media never once questioned how someone who was repeatedly having heart attacks could possibly run the most powerful country in the world. Kreisman explains this quite nicely, though Cheney's doctor has to be summoned whenever the pacemaker interferes with TV reception.
