He Can Shoot a Man in the Face, but

apparently Cheney can't face those who disagree with him. So he's decided to snub the Japanese defense minister during an upcoming visit to Japan. What did the minister say that was so horribly offensive? Defense Minister Fumio Kyuma said that the decision to invade Iraq was a mistake. Yup. Something that just about everyone but Bush & Cheney agree with at this point. But wait, there's more. Kyuma pretty quickly backed up, saying no, what he really meant to say was that the US attack decision "should have been more cautious."

So having backed up and restated his position, and denying the word "mistake" -- has Kyuma bowed and groveled enough that the great Cheney would agree to speak with him?

Are you kidding? This is a guy who is waiting for the world to apologize to him for our doubts over his ability to rule the world. But the diplomats stepped up and noted that really the problem was that the Veep had a very full schedule before hand and there simply isn't any room to meet with the Defense Minister of one of our top allies.

These people have thinner skin even than Richard Nixon, and that's saying something.

I bet Cheney wishes he has Putin's range of punishments and murder options to use on his critics here at home. You just know he does.

Further proof that Cheney is running the White House: look at the list of countries/people to whom the administration will not talk. It is seemingly endless. U.S. diplomats will soon begin to take credit for any breakthroughs in North Korea, by pointing to our refusals to negotiate with them. You watch.
