Dick Cheney Appreciation Night

You've got to hand it to the guy. By defiantly defending his participation in crimes against humanity, he dares mealy-mouth reformists, Serious thinkers and play-nicers to continue plowing the ship of empire right through the iceberg which is now plainly visible for all to see. Previous American war criminals at least kept their activity out of the press long enough for establishment historians to edit it out of the textbooks. But this guy is putting it right out there, making the apologist scribes look even more venal in defending him from The Hague than any genuine anti-imperialist ever could.
