I have often observed that watching Dick Cheney speak is like watching someone lie through their teeth. He has the oddest way of manipulating and holding his mouth.
Clayton Eshleman watched him speak one night on the news and then wrote this. It is an apt description, in my opinion.
Dick Cheney's mouth
slides on circular-saw teeth, with rakers,
to rip out the throats of words,
to drape their worm-casts,
scare-nets, over brains hypnotized by
the blind light of innocence,
that tunnel of camouflaged history called
"it's a free country."
