This Dick Cheney Guy Is Nuts Right?
The journalism news organizationPolitico drove to Dick Cheney's house last night to let the former vice president rant and spit for 90 minutes straight about whatever. The write-up of this interview is, even by Cheney's standards, among the most vile pieces of propaganda since the Bible. Here's the quality we're dealing with: "Cheney was asked if he thinks the Bush administration bears any responsibility for the disintegration of Afghanistan because of the attention and resources that were diverted to Iraq. 'I basically don't,' he replied without elaborating." Eh, must've been too difficult for Mike Allen to ask follow-up questions with Cheney's cock in his mouth. *Not that there's anything wrong with that.* [Ben Smith]
