Dick Cheney will never forget you

Dick Cheney will never forget you

As Atrios already noted, it’s like all those Tom Friedman jokes we’ve made over the years turned out to be the basis of American Foreign Policy:

An Iraqi taxi driver may have been the source of the discredited claim that Saddam Hussein could unleash weapons of mass destruction within 45 minutes, a Tory MP claimed today.

I keep thinking that this must have been the most disastrous low-point in a lifetime of low-points in American politics, the nadir of political discourse. “How could that have happened?”, I wonder naively.

And then I wake up to see that Fred Hiatt has allowed Sarah Palin to put her (well someone’s) Facebook ramblings of FoxNews talking gibberish on global warming as an Op-Ed, and this, Glenn Beck’s “Christmas question”: “Do you believe Tiger Woods may actually be OJ Simpson?” and that may not even be the cherry on top of the crap-sundae.
