    ...that makes what would be a very tough call on the basis of insanity alone into a...  somewhat... easier judgement.
    LaPierre is a one-issue, localized, flash-in-the-pan nutcase.
    But Cheney is an all-purpose, multi-dimensional, long-term screwup.
    You name it -- from the obvious warmongering, torture-supporting, Halliburton-war-profiteering, fossil-fuel-extorting, and climate-demolishing, to the upending of our most cherished laws, traditions, and norms of behavior -- he's made our country, and our world, worse in almost every possible way.
    LaPierre is responsible for the deaths of hundreds, thousands -- perhaps tens of thousands -- of Americans.
    Cheney is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, maybe millions, of citizens of God-only-knows even how many different countries -- and the deaths will continue for at least a full generation yet to come.
    That realisation makes it an easier call.
