Darth Cheney

"Shrub Shitkicker, I am your father...and your puppet master."

Damn, I was out last night and missed The Dark Side, which ran last night on Frontline. Oh well. The website is interesting enough, and I might kill some time Thursday squinting at the very small screen when it becomes available for online viewing.

You might want to take a look at producer Michael Kirk's online chat at the WaPo site today. Included is this now-quaint notion in light of shills like Judith Miller taking fourth estate employment:

Clearly some of the CIA officers who spoke to us wanted the opportunity to tell their side of the story. We of course didn't just provide them a forum--it is our responsibility to measure what they said against the public record, the documents being acquired by government agencies and prosecutors and other, off the record interviews we conducted. We regret that the Office of the Vice President would not help us understand their position by talking to us with equal openness.

Too bad the government (see my last post yesterday) prefers running things like a traveling gun salesman working out of his car trunk...
