Through the closed door we can still hear him cackling. In the early nineteen-sixties, Cheney dropped out of Yale twice, but one professor there made a deep impression on him. That was H. Bradford Westerfield, a diplomatic historian who believed that it was possible that the United States would fall victim to a Communist takeover. And then the shocking thing was that you would enter the classroom and here would be all these nice young people who honestly wanted to learn to write an essay. It was skeptical of power exercised by the United Nations and other multinational alliances, as opposed to that exercised by the United States unilaterally.

'Vice' and the Humanization of Dick Cheney - The Atlantic
Dick Cheney unknown. A man who can't tell the difference between a quail and his hunting partner. Our Vice President. Luckily, he is ok. Dick is just one step away from being president. Thank Jesus George W.
Dick Cheney is back but rehabilitation is not on Darth Vader's agenda
And McKay, who both wrote the screenplay and directed the film, never lets viewers forget for a moment that his protagonist has a loving family and a beating heart—even if by the end of the story after transplant surgery that heart is no longer his own. Then as now, the gap between his Darth Vader image and the Ward Cleaver vibe he gives off in person is hard to reconcile, but McKay does his damnedest. A story of a guy who had a bumpy beginning, wanted to make his way, wanted to make his wife proud, wanted to climb the ladder. Beside him through it all—kicking his ass when he needs it, holding his hand when he earns it—is his ferociously smart and ambitious high-school sweetheart turned wife, without whom one senses, in the film as in real life, he might never have made it out of Casper, Wyoming, at all. To watch Christian Bale in yet another one of his uncanny, shape-shifting performances in the title role is to forget that you are not watching Cheney himself.
The man for the job. People on Twitter had much to say about the moment, including the Church of Satan religious movement. Hail Christian!
