Elizabeth Edwards vs. Dick Cheney
"I don't know why somebody else's marriage has anything to do with me,'' she said. "I'm completely comfortable with gay marriage.''
The gang at Pandagon wonder if this is the first step in a planned "conversion experience" for her husband. I sure hope so.
Meanwhile, back at the cesspool:
Will the Washington Post's series on Cheney actually get traction in the MSM? And by "traction", I mean "make them realize you don't have to be a moonbat to want to impeach this guy."
hilzoy at Obsidian Wings is doing a series on the WaPo articles.
These articles should be assigned to management classes as studies in what not to do. They describe the exact sort of decision-making process that reliably leads to disaster, and the kinds of personal dynamics that enable it. It's a model of complete organizational breakdown, and it should be studied for generations to come, so that it is never repeated.
The so-far-unanswered question: Why does Cheney have more power over the President's mind than Condi Rice -- who is *far* closer to Bush personally and politically? Why would she have to let him read her correspondence with her subordinates and make policy changes behind her back, changes that she only found out from the news media?
I'm not saying I necessarily leap to the idea of blackmail, but his power must be coming from *somewhere*.
