Cheney - The Bad News Bear

You have to work hard, really hard to get as much bad press as Vice President Cheney.

Cheney's relentless advocacy of the Iraq war, his push to expand presidential authority and his hard-line rhetoric toward North Korea and Iran are raising concerns even among former loyalists now worried about the GOP's chances in 2008.

It seems Cheney fatigue is settling in some Republican circles.

Cheney starred in his own 4 part series showing the range of his micromanaging, lack of sentiment for salmon or the friend he peppered - no shot, directly in the face. He felt no need to tell his nominal boss or the boss's minions, but bless his heart, Cheney did find the most junior ranking reporter to mumble to about his role in the muddled story. Blaming the target for getting in front of his gun while shooting wingless birds was unique. But hey, Cheney had bigger fish to fry, his own minion, Irving Lewis "Scooter" Libby was on trial for Perjury and Obstruction of Justice, then CONVICTED, and got not a full-Monty pardon, but a commuted sentence on behalf of Guess Who...

The publishing industry will continue the book bonanza with this secretive and maladroit administration. What interesting book has really opened your eyes about the inner trappings of Bushworld?
