(All Too) Well-Preserved

Shouldn't a golem have an expiration date? Wasn't Darth Cheney's chest supposed to be all full of rotten flesh and fragile electronics? He was talking again today:
Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney has defended the Bush administration's use of harsh interrogation methods, saying they were necessary to get information from terrorists and save American lives.

In a speech Thursday at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, Cheney said President Barack Obama and other officials have largely "mischaracterized" the previous administration's approval of such techniques.

He said they were "essential," "justified," "successful," and the "right thing to do" and that they prevented the violent deaths of thousands and possibly hundreds of thousands of people.
I fancy that a deal with Old Scratch might well be the least-hypothesis explanation for Mr. Cheney's longevity. Don't look now, sir, but I think some diabolical-looking imps are prodding you toward the smoldering edge of a glowing abyss ...

Without question, the photo supports your hypothesis.

And he just keeps enabling Obama to continue the bipartisan War Party program, by being so "out there" that Obama can look conciliatory and reasonable and peaceable while, in fact, expanding the wars. Cheney has just got to be on the current regime's payroll.
