Cheney makes former President Nixon look like an amateur.
This article on Truthout tells the tale of Dick Cheney’s involvement with Halliburton and its subsidiary, KBR.
It is one long litany of charges of conflict of interest. Only problem is, he’ll never have to pay for his avarice and deceit. Even if he is impeached and even convicted which I consider highly unlikely while the Republicans control congress, but if the improbable were to become probable and he were through some infinitesimal probability convicted, Bush would immediately pardon him.
This dovetails nicely with the farcical Ethics link I posted a few days back. Sometimes reality truly is stranger than fiction.
But at last reckoning, isn’t Cheney’s approval rating somewhere around 18%? I don’t think he’ll be running for President once Dubya’s term is up. But I could be wrong.
