Silver-tongued devil

George McGovern takes the hide off Dick Cheney and the rest of the chickenhawks. Whether or not you agree with his politics, McGovern exploits the raw nerve of Cheney and Bush's lack of service in Vietnam with the deftness of Sir Lawrence Olivier's character in Marathon Man.

One of McGovern's biggest failings was that he expected all politicians to maintain his lofty ideals. Would the U.S. have been better off under him? Who knows? But it probably would have been spared a lot of inner turmoil and anguish. Cheney is in no position to be questioning the philosophies of anyone else.

Here's the money quote:

On second thought, maybe it's wise to keep Cheney off the battlefield — he might end up shooting his comrades rather than the enemy.
