Well, who would have seen this coming -- Commander Chimpy actually starting to twig to who's responsible for the clusterfuck that his presidency has become:
The role of Vice President Dick Cheney as the administration's point man in security policy appears over, according to administration sources.
Over the last two months Mr. Cheney has been granted decreasing access to the Oval Office, the sources said on the condition of anonymity. The two men still meet, but the close staff work between the president and vice president has ended.
Good old Chimpy -- it's always someone else's fault, isn't it?
AFTERSNARK: It's amusing to read, in that article, about the redirection of blame by Commander Chimpy:
The sources said Mr. Bush has privately blamed Mr. Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for the U.S.-led war in Iraq.
This would be the same Mr. Bush who so eloquently proclaimed back in March of 2002, "Fuck Saddam, we're taking him out."
I guess it all depends on what you mean by "we," doesn't it?
AFTERSNARK 2: Um ... huh?
The sources also said Mr. Rumsfeld is expected to remain in his post until U.S. troops are withdrawn from Iraq.
Excuse me, but Rumsfeld is, like, 73 years old or something. And there's an election in 2008. Someone seems to be overly optimistic here.
