Does Cheney Have Bush-Envy?

It must be hard being Bush's veep. Watching W stride through life with his C-average strut that mysteriously captivated millions while at the same time being an international punch line for his inability to speak his native language, remember salient facts (such as who actually invaded us on 9/11 vs. who he didn't like). Darth Cheney, on the other hand, can't even get away with shooting an old man in the face - even AFTER the old man apologized to Cheney & his family for it.

So it must be especially grating for Cheney to be mocked now for a very Bush-like flub, after mixing up Venezuelan Prez Hugh Chavez's nation with that of Peru. Cheney on Chavez, "The people of Peru, I think, deserve better in their leadership. But that's obviously a matter they've got to resolve for themselves."

Then again, maybe Cheney knows something we don't -- that the people of Peru are working with the CIA to invade Venezuela? One never knows with this crowd.

I think Cheney is unconsciously aping Spiro Agnew, who memorably declared that if you've seen one slum, you've seen them all. In Cheney's world view, seen one two-bit southoftheborderbananarepublic, seen'em all.
