Beating A Horse That Shows No Signs Of Life

Isn't it amazing that Dick Cheney has not made a public statement since his quail-gone-wrong incident this weekend? The most important thing in politics is perception. And he seems clueless - and I can't believe Bush doesn't call him on the carpet and tell him to get this situation under control. All of this silence (causing the press secretary to be beaten to a pulp) just leads to the "perception" that Bush is a puppet and Chaney calls the shots. In conservative columnist Mark Davis' column today in the Morning News, he said "Thank heaven these people run a war better than a hunting accident." I'm not sure that's true at all.
