Well, it's only a little late-- how many years and lives since?-- but the Washington Post has issued the first of a four part series examining the machinations of Dick ("Go fuck yourself") Cheney. Very little of it will surprise, I'm sure, but some of the details and the manipulations are downright eerie. And, I tarry to say, not a little reminiscent of Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate.
Footnote: The more I learn about the inner working of the ChainGang, the more I find sympathy, partial and otherwise, for figures like Ashcroft, Rumsfeld and even the President himself. They seem more and more like characters from a French farce stuck in a geopolitical version of Othello. The hapless Desdemona, of course, is played by the American constitution.
