A Delusional in the West Wing
Like Cheney himself, I seem to have been behind the times.
I have long thought Cheney was the brains behind the throne in the West Wing and, perhaps when you stand him in a room with W. Bush, he IS the brainier of the two.
But, as Froomkin notes in The Unraveling of Dick Cheney, the delusion -- the total lack of even a nodding acquaintance with reality -- does seem to have become obvious.
