Cheney has been pretty vocal lately:
On Sunday, he said he would pick Rush Limbaugh over former secretary of state Colin L. Powell as a model for the Republican Party and virtually wrote his onetime colleague out of the GOP.
- As Cheney Seizes Spotlight, Many Republicans Wince


That says so many things.

1) Cheney's crazy.
- and he is completely incapable of evaluating Powell and Limbaugh's skills as politicians.

2) He has no idea what regular Republicans want to hear (I hope!).
- nor does he know what the general population wants to hear.

3) He's so right-wing. No surprise there.

forgot to say:
4) He's pretty cold. I think Powell got pretty burned by the Bush Administration to begin with, and Cheney's just stepping in open wounds.

An amusing addendum:

Jesse Ventura's say:

"You look at Dick Cheney who ran and hid [from the Vietnam war draft]," Ventura said. "I have no respect for Dick Cheney. I have tremendous respect for General Powell."

Waterboarding, Ventura said, "is torture... It's drowning... I'll put it to you this way, you give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I'll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders".

I love that you still read the Post regularly. Does it make you miss D.C.?

Hee. I really like the Post. I haven't found a better newspaper yet. What do you normally read?

It does make me miss D.C. a bit; especially when they talk about local things like museums, etc.
