In Case you had Doubts: Dick Cheney is a Liar

I know, I know, all politicians lie. Nearly all are mean, opportunistic bastards, vindictive to any who cross them or even appear to do so. Many are hypocrits who operate on the principle "do as I say not as I do." But our vice president seems to be in an elite class (many of his clasmates also work for BushCo) where lying, opportunism, vindictiveness, and hypocrisy are seen as special virtues. You may think I am being a tad harsh. Perhaps so. But see the more temperate views of Joan Didion "Cheney: The Fatal Touch" in the New York Review of Books this week (10/05/06). It is enough to make you sick. Why are American not more like Hungarians?
