I’m linking to this MoDo piece on a Cheney/Rumsfeld “conversation”…
…(care of the much more interesting Jen Rubin) for two reasons. One, people like Dowd really do think that we think and talk like this:
“I hear Poppy Bush is furious at you,” he says. “He’s telling folks he put Junior in your care and you stole his presidency and destroyed the Bush name and derailed Jeb’s chances to ever be president, and P.S., you wrecked the country and the Atlantic alliance to boot. He has it in for Lynne, too. Thinks she spun you up, like she did in high school with her flaming batons. He thinks you got loopy from all the heart procedures. And Colin’s mad at you.”
“He can go to yoga with Pelosi for all I care,” Dick growls.
Bizarre to contemplate, but true. There are people out there who apparently just can’t function in life unless they’ve convinced themselves first that the opposition has a Deep, Dark Conspiracy in place. I suppose that it’s a motivation exercise, or something.
PS: The second reason? I thought that I’d give whoever she might have ripped off to write this piece a better chance of seeing it.
