Last week I raised the question of whether the Vice President of the United States is losing his grip.
After his weekend performance, others are asking the same question. Cheney told Wolf Blitzer:
Bottom line is that we’ve had enormous successes, and we will continue to have enormous successes.
Cheney’s statements about Iraq are not rational. Whether he has resumed drinking, or whether he has some organic brain syndrome, or whether he simply thinks he can tell baldfaced lies and get away with it, the man’s actions are not befitting the Vice Presidency.
On another front, testimony in the Scooter Libby case indicates that the Vice President was at the heart of the plot to expose CIA agent Valerie Plame, and also directed Libby’s attempts to cover up the scheme.
The Vice President should resign.
