Cheney’s got a front

It’s been amusing to see the fawning over US Vice President ‘Deadeye’ Dick Cheney during his late visit to Australia.

And it’s intriguing, to say the least, that a man who has been so consistently wrong wrong WRONG in his assessments about Iraq, should be given serious media coverage with his latest pronouncements. A lesser scoundrel might simply shut the f**k up, or deftly change the subject to one more attuned with proven expertise, such as hunting etiquette.

And yet it’s profoundly unsurprising that a certain Australian Head of Government (who shall remain mentionless, for a change) should fete Mr Cheney, taking said late pronouncements as somehow vindicating said Australian Government’s boneheaded position on the war.

Scoundrels all. The best that can be said is that at least we’re in the presence of bigtime, quality scoundrelry.
