During his last days in office, “experienced businessman” Dick Cheney ignored the economic collapse brought on by his administration and concentrated all of his persuasive efforts on bugging Bush to pardon Cheney’s former Chief of Staff, a convicted felon.
He hasn’t changed. In C.S. Lewis’s Narnia, “the dwarfs are for the dwarfs.” So too with Cheney: his daughter tells Fox News that he has come out of hiding because he fears prosecution for authorizing torture (frankly, I’d like to hear what a jury might decide).
So his chosen method? Destroy the Republican Party that made him everything he is today. .Knute Rockne used to say, “you don’t spit on a man’s head if you’re standing on his shoulders.” Well, the vexed and vexing Cheney is contemptuous of the party he helped to destroy. He will spit and sputter to his heart’s content. Ingrates! Traitors!
Important note: Cheney still has a lot of money and some very rich and powerful friends. There are a lot more people concerning whom he undoubtedly has incriminating information (remember Bill Clinton and those 946 FBI files Hillary collected in her personal library on their enemies?). So the party will not dismiss him lightly.
Nonetheless, everybody but the neocons and the criminals wish he would go away11:15 am on May 22, 2009 Email Christopher Manion
