Offense enough to go around

Dick Cheney is unhappy.

He told the reliably-safe Chris Wallace of Fox News that the idea of anyone investigating the use of torture by the Bush administration "offends the hell out of me."

He's also rankled that those who favor such an investigation clearly aren't sufficiently grateful for Bush and Cheney's "track record now of eight years defending the nation against any further mass casualty attacks from Al Qaeda," as if the first mass casualty attack from Al Qaeda, against which they defended so poorly, was a mulligan.

I feel Mr. Cheney's pain.

Me, I'm offended as hell that he's not living out the remainder of his life in a cell in The Hague, while back home his name is being taught to school children along with other disgraced names from our history like Benedict Arnold, as a lesson for generations to come.

So, you know, I guess it's not a perfect world for any of us.
