On Tuesday, the New York Times ran the following correction on a story about Dick Cheney telling House Republicans to "embrace a strong military and reject a rising isolationism in his party":

Correction: September 9, 2014

An earlier version of a summary with this article misstated the former title of Dick Cheney. He was vice president, not president.

2. I have been seeing Duers being accused of embracing isolationism because they oppose

this action now I see where that talking point came from. Very revealing.

4. Poor Georgie can't get no respect. His tomb will read, "Barbara said I was the real President."

 

Next comes Jeb, the smarter son.
