If you don't subscribe to Showtime, you can do the next best thing by going to the link below and reading Dowd's column. If you are as appalled by it as I am, keep reminding yourself that Dowd only hits the high points.
The article and the documentary show just how delusional Dick Cheney is and was. He thought of himself as the President, with George W. Bush as his puppet. It becomes clear how much contempt Cheney had for Bush. The relationship between the two was ruptured when Bush was kept out of the loop on the Justice Department's rebellion against Cheney's illegal warrantless domestic spying Program. By then, it was too late to rein Cheney in, but Bush did manage to keep Cheney from bombing a nuclear plant in the Syrian desert. A good thing. Otherwise, we might be enmeshed in yet another war, this time with Syria.
Dowd quotes Cheney as saying, "I dont lie awake at night thinking, gee, what are they going to say about me?"
At that, Dowd comments: "They're going to say you were a misguided powermonger who, in a paranoid spasm, led this nation into an unthinkable calamity. Sleep on that."
