Cheney Takes Limbaugh Over Powell

There use to be a time where top political officials took the “elder statesman” approach to interviews. Not so with former VP Dick Cheney. There are few subtlties in his interviews when it comes to allegiances. When asked about the statements Rush Limbaugh made regarding former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and Secretary of State Colin Powell, Cheney did not mince words.

  1. Does anyone actually listen to Cheney any more? If they do, they really shouldn’t.

    To me, this Powell-bashing from Cheney just reinforces what I’ve been thinking for a while now: without new, solid leadership, the Republicans seem well on their way to getting third-party status. If fiscal conservatives keep peeling off in favor of the Libertarians and moderates continue to be won over by the Democrats, they’re going to be left as a marginalized right-wing theocratic party, and that does not bode well for anyone. I may be a “secular progressive” but I believe strongly in having a vibrant opposition. A single party gaining long-standing dominance over another is not good for American democracy. However, as I detailed in a recent post, I doubt the Democratic Party would maintain its dominance for long.
