The Cheney factor

At the start of the Bush presidency, Dick Cheney was viewed as the
grown-up, the seasoned hand to guide an inexperienced president. Now,
he’s the center of controversy.

Sometimes a story comes along that presents a unique chance to
educate the American people. I refer, of course, to Vice President Dick
Cheney shooting an attorney.

Jimmy Carter fought off a killer bunny. Ronald Reagan was almost
flogged by a turkey. And Andrew Jackson’s potty-mouthed parrot was

Dick Cheney’s legacy

In politics, certain unplanned moments can suddenly _ and often
unfairly _ crystallize a vague and unformed public impression into a
lasting stereotype.

Shoot first, take questions later

No doubt you are as sick and tired as I am at having to listen to
