How To Roast Dick Cheney 101: Waterboard Jokes

Dick Cheney

There was no shortage of material at the top-secret, off-the-record roast for former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Conservatives from all over America gathered at the Plaza Hotel on Monday to pay tribute to the greatest a Vice President who ever lived: Dick Cheney. Since there’s nothing funnier than torture, the roast included jokes about waterboarding and his other policies regarding the war on terror.

The top secret roast (which wasn’t so top secret after everything was leaked to Buzzfeed) featured speakers such as former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey. Even Senator Joe Lieberman got a few jabs in there.

Lieberman “said something to the effect that it’s nice that we’re all here at the Plaza instead of in cages after some war crimes trial,” recalled one person who was there. Not sure if that one was a joke or the truth…

While the edgy jokes went over went with most of the crowd, one guest was less than impressed.

“There were some waterboarding jokes that were really tasteless,” the guest said. “I can see the case for enhanced interrogation techniques after Sept. 11 but I can’t really endorse sitting there drinking wine and fancy dinner at the Plaza laughing uproariously about it.”

Dick Cheney’s love of waterboarding wasn’t the only thing to make fun of – and neither was Dick Cheney himself. Conservatives also made fun of Barack Obama (that’s a given), Secretary of State Colin Powell, and even Vladimir Putin.

Nevertheless, the roast was a surprising success – mainly because no one got shot in the face by Dick Cheney.

    Couldn’t they invite Dick Cheney to a roast where they actually roast him?…like on a Spit?
