Will calls Cheney "clinical"
From George Will:

In a recent interview with Vice President Cheney, Time magazine asked, "If you had to take back any one thing you'd said about Iraq, what would it be?" Selecting from what one hopes is a very long list, Cheney replied: "I thought that the elections that we went through in '05 would have had a bigger impact on the level of violence than they have ... I thought we were over the hump in terms of violence. I think that was premature."

He thinks so? Clearly, and weirdly, he implies that the elections had some positive impact on the level of violence. Worse, in the full transcript of the interview posted online he said the big impact he expected from the elections "hasn't happened yet." "Yet"? Doggedness can be admirable, but this is clinical.

2. George Will's nimble phraseology and and balletic wordsmithing
can not absolve him of his complicity in this evil.

My sympathy for him is somewhat overshadowed by feelings about the dead soldiers and Iraqi citizens who might still be alive if not for this historically selfish and stupid war.

But all are welcomed back from the dark side, if they can find their way.
