Looks like the new batteries have kicked in:
Vice President Dick Cheney Tuesday dismissed congressional investigations into the firings of nine U.S. attorneys as “a bit of a witch hunt.”
“First of all, there’s no charge,” Cheney said. “What’s the allegation of wrongdoing here? Frankly, there isn’t any.”
“They keep rolling over rocks hoping they can find something, but there really hasn’t been anything come up that would suggest there was any wrongdoing of any kind,” Cheney told CNN’s Larry King, adding that he did not feel that Bush senior political adviser Karl Rove need testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the matter.
“The president feels strongly — and I do too, I agree with him — that it’s important for us to pass on these offices we occupy to our successors in as good a shape as we found them. And that means protecting and preserving the integrity of those processes,” Cheney said.
Too [bleeping] right. Bush may or may not be judged kindly by history—but I can tell you one thing right now. This Vice President has more gonads than the previous several combined (going back to Truman).
What little heart he has left is stout indeed.
