Cheney for Prezident

Please God:

Lawrence Kudlow wrote a column a while back saying he hoped President Bush asked Vice President Cheney to run for president in 2008. It was a fine idea then and it still is — not because the current field is particularly weak, but because Mr. Cheney is so much more experienced and shrewd a figure, one who could help settle some of the arguments about the Bush years in favor of Mr. Bush. A White House aiming to get Mr. Cheney elected could also avoid some of the hazards that befall lame-ducks — drift, brain drain, irrelevance. Such a campaign might lift Mr. Cheney 's own standing in the polls.

Cheney's approval rating is running close on either side of 30%, and this is a guy one can only guess at what he does.

He'd be like Bob Dole but on some kind of twisted Viagra.

Here's Charles Rangel, courtesy of Crooks and Liars, providing a refreshing corrective to Cheney's radio re-appearance Thursday with Rush Limbaugh:

"Well, less than 30% of the people have confidence in what the President has to say and less than that have confidence in what the Vice President has to say and it's abundantly clear from his five deferments that he's not too familiar with military fighting."

The fact that they won't talk to anyone is finally just cowardice. He's too much of a wuss, Bush is too much of a wuss to do anything but hide behind other people's bodybags.

When the secret history of this era is written, it will be much, much worse than either you or I imagine.

And what you find out about Richard Bruce Cheney will frighten you at night.
