The clinically sane:
The Unraveling of Dick Cheney
While Dick Cheney undoubtedly remains the most powerful vice president this nation has ever seen, it's becoming increasingly unclear whether anyone outside the White House believes a word he says...
But as his astonishing interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer laid bare last week, Cheney is increasingly out of touch with reality. He seems to think that by asserting things that are simply untrue, he can make others believe they are so.
Maybe that works within the White House. But for the rest of us, it's becoming a better bet to assume that everything -- or almost everything -- Cheney says is flat wrong.
And the not:
One of the reasons I've always liked Dick Cheney is that he doesn't beat around the bush.
Don't worry -- I'm sure I'll get tired of this in a year or two. Maybe.
