The Washington Post is running a 4 part series by Barton Gellman and Jo Becker about Cheney and his Royal Dickdom. Here are the links to Part one and Part two . But just to tease you, here's an excerpt:
Cheney and former vice president Dan Quayle: "Cheney had just taken the oath of office, and Quayle paid a visit to offer advice from one vice president to another.

"'I said, "Dick, you know, you're going to be doing a lot of this international traveling, you're going to be doing all this political fundraising . . . you'll be going to the funerals," ' Quayle said in an interview earlier this year. 'I mean, this is what vice presidents do. I said, "We've all done it."' '

"Cheney 'got that little smile,' Quayle said, and replied, 'I have a different understanding with the president.'"

As Gellman and Becker write: "Cheney preferred, and Bush approved, a mandate that gave him access to 'every table and every meeting,' making his voice heard in 'whatever area the vice president feels he wants to be active in,' [now chief of staff Joshua] Bolten said.

America needs to be educated about this monster. Insert Dick joke here.

Maybe "insert" was the wrong choice of word.
