Yuck. US News sucks Dick off.

The issue showed up in my mailbox today. Seeing Darth Cheney's arrogant mug on the cover made me rip it right off. But at least I felt better afterwards.

Here's the link:

I didn't read the whole thing (life is too short for that), but here's the most revolting part that I saw:

In times of trouble, Cheney turns to the example of George Washington, whose life he has studied in great detail. Washington was criticized for being aloof and imperial, as is Cheney. But the VP believes America's first president had a knack for seeing beyond the crisis of the moment and for not getting thrown off course by "background noise." It's the same path that Richard Bruce Cheney is trying to walk at the dawn of the 21st century.

Wow. This piece is trying to conflate the man who stepped down after 2 terms to avoid becoming a king with the man who thinks a president needs to be a king. My mind just reels at this connection.

Hang in there, John.

Peace.
