When it comes to the Bush administration, hypocrisy competes daily with incompetence as the most defining characteristic.
Vice President Dick Cheney gave a speech today, in which he said that:
“In many areas of civil society — from religion and the news media to advocacy groups and political parties — the Government has unfairly and improperly restricted the rights of the people.”
This was no mea culpa. Don;t expect an apology anytime soon.This was part of an address that he made in Moscow today. Moscow, the capital of a country whose leader is Putin. Putin, the leader of Russia. The man into whose soul Bush can see. Russia, an absolutely essential ally in any attempt to slow down Iran's production of nuclear weapons.
