Cheney's nonsensical outburst

"I had promised myself that I would do a better job of ignoring Dick Cheney’s corrosive and nonsensical outbursts — that I would treat them, more or less, like the pearls of wisdom one hears from homeless people sitting in bus shelters," wrote columnist Eugene Robinson. But "the shrill screed that Cheney unloosed Wednesday is so full of outright mendacity," that Robinson felt compelled to respond. Cheney's claim that "President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war" is "flat-out untrue," Robinson said.
