File under B for blind.
The problem facing us is "will we have the stomach to fight?" After the laughter dies down, I have this sense of fear that sets in. Dick Cheney thinks it's all about our gumption. I can't believe any man this hellbent on painting obscure word pictures and avoiding saying I was wrong could still be respected. To those folks driving around with Bush/Cheney '04 stickers in their windows...can you tell me what he means, because I don't hear a direct answer to anything.
My band of brothers has a phrase we use to acknowledge when someone has shared something, a feeling/hope/desire/etc. with no confusion. A statement that gets to the essence of their truth without distractions. We say it's a clean statement. Dick Cheney was not clean in his "sharing."
John Stewart helps me find some comic relief in it, but it's the kind of comic relief that involves poor Yorick's skull in the punchline.
