The Dick Cheney of writing instruments

"I will not be complying with this demand. I’m done with Number 2 pencils. A lot of people don’t know this because it happened so long ago, but number 2 pencils totally usurped all the power from Number 1 pencils before it was their turn. Number 2 pencils didn’t care how many pencils they had to step on and break to get to the top. And they’ve outlasted their welcome. I think of them as the Dick Cheney of writing instruments. Number 2 pencils have left a wake of death, destruction and pencil shavings for the next pencils to clean up. I’ll leave this story for another time."
