The Left: still quite unhinged about Dick Cheney.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney…
You probably remember him.
…anyway, Darth Cheney has a book out today (“In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir“): and the Left is acting – about as you’d expect, honestly (note that I’m including in that list a bunch of people who are still trying to pretend that they’re not on the Left, these days). The shrieking is highly amusing, not least for the reason that most of the poor schmucks doing it are fairly transparently trying to avoid thinking about the fact that the current administration is more or less doing a Cargo Cult imitation of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rice’s foreign policy. Which is to say, if you look at it from a distance and squint then it kind of looks like the previous administration’s foreign policy… but get up close and you realize that it’s all bamboo and palm fronds where steel should be. Not to mention all the people standing around and scratching their heads over why the magic spells weren’t working.
Then again, that’s an improvement over our 2008 expectations with regard to this administration.
At any rate, the book’s out today, and it promises to cause just as many hysteria-based aneurysms as Donald Rumsfeld‘s Known and Unknown: A Memoir did. So, you may want to check it out for that alone.
