Unfortunately I believe that we are limited in what we can focus on. I think that if we proceed with the partisan sideshow of prosecuting Bush admin. officials, healthcare will get lost in the brouhaha.

Sneak Preview: New Book of Cheney Revelations

POSTED: 06:04 PM ET, 09/12/2008 by The Editors

Beginning this Sunday, The Post will publish a two-part excerpt from Barton Gellman's new book "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency."

Gellman, who this year shared the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting with Jo Becker for their Post series on the vice president's vast influence, recreates in the excerpt the week that Cheney nearly led President Bush off a cliff, keeping him unaware of a dispute that threatened his presidency. White House and other top officials speak on the record about an episode that one of them describes as nearing "Watergate territory."

In one instance, a top official sent a BlackBerry message, just after leaving the Oval Office, saying he told the president "he was being misled" by Cheney and his allies.

Check back on Sunday for the details. And on Wednesday, join Gellman for an online discussion of the new book.

cheney is just plain evil to the core. paranoid, corrupt, sneaky, very self-aggrandizing.

it was he that made a large part of the mess we are in both with our military and with our economy.

i remember in 1986 when ronnie was president, how these DB's froze military pay!!! yea do some research... these guys held up military pay raises... WTF...

and you guys think RR and cheney and the rest are so great?? that was the era when militart E1-E5's were getting foodstamps!!

how easiliy everyone is misled and duped.

i hope this book doesn't make cheney look like an angel.

Unless the book depicts him as John Milton, founding partner in Milton,Chadwick, Walters (Al Pacino in The Devil's Advocate), it's just another Republican soft sell.

This book is not a republican soft cell.
It is top notch journalism.
It gives the facts.
As far as I am capable of telling them.
Though I suppose it could be reverse disinformation tactics.
Serious psy-ops. don't even want to know.
