Stop clutching your chest, Dick!
While Inerrant Boy flees to Mongolia, and panders to the base by telling the Chinese to print Bibles (not the Origin of Species?) Dick "Dick" Cheney is blowing a gasket:
"[CHENEY] In Washington you can ordinarily rely on some basic measure of truthfulness and good faith in the conduct of political debate."
Oh my. Three words: "Downing Street Memos." Nine words: "The intelligence and facts were fixed around the policy." And that's just the start of it.
Look, I can't stand it. I'm going to leave out everything but Cheney's adjectives:
wild dishonest reprehensible irresponsible broad-based, bipartisan cynical and pernicious dangerous brave honourable
"[MURTHA] I like guys who've never been there that criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done," Murtha said.
I like it too. And you know what? I'd say "wild, dishonest, irresponsible, cynical, and pernicious" is a textbook case of Winger Projection Syndrome in action. Eh?
NOTE Michael Kinsley is Mark Danner's bitch. Not a pretty sight, but it had to be done.
