Great moments in Vice Presidenting


Afterward, he took questions from a group of 30 troops in a large tent. "From our perspective, we don't see much as far as gains," Marine Cpl. Bradley Warren told Cheney. "I was wondering what it looks like from the big side of the mountain -- how Iraq's looking."

"Well, Iraq's looking good," Cheney responded. "It's hard sometimes, if you look at just the news, to have the good stories burn through."

This kind of just flies by in the story, but take a look at what's going on here. A Marine Corporal, on the ground in Iraq, tells his vice president that from his perspective, the troops are not seeing "much as far as gains" in the country.

To which Cheney replies: it's all the news media's fault.

This gang loves to blame the rooster for crowing at the sunrise. Now they're telling our troops that their own eyes are being warped by the media. Psychotic.
