Shooting a lawyer was the best thing Cheney could have done for his career last week. It distracted the country from the Pillar accusations about Cheney and the Irag invasion, and the Libby accusations about Cheney and the Plame affair.
So I now live in a country that almost brought down a president for lying about sex, but won't impeach an administration guilty of subverting the constitution, leaking intelligence for political advantage, and sacrificing more than 2,000 soldiers in a vanity war because monstrous egos ignored expert advice.
Maybe this isn't America. Maybe I'm a Tuvalan . I live in a country that's sinking into the ocean, and the United States Congress isn't doing a damn thing about it.
