We’ve been wondering what Cheney’s role in Rove Gate was and found some of the questions are cleared up here. Questions, of course, that lead to more questions. Could it be that Cheney is the real target of the Fitzgerald investigation?
Cheney is the real power. Bush is an empty suit dancing on a short leash, allowed to shoot off his mouth, strut, bully and act out within the strict confines of a script written elsewhere. The viciousness of the Plame outing suggests both Cheney and Rove and my guess is that the junta is delighted that Rove is getting all the attention and Cheney, so far, is skating.
