As a Bush lover, I still get an enormous

Thinking like that is not as funny as might seem. During the JFK administration, Air Force General Curtis Lemay was inspecting a new military aircraft.

Cheney's nonchalant "So?" brings to mind Lady MacBeth's, "What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?"

"Let them eat cake"
