In contrast to Cheney’s book, the new memoir from ex-Delaware Senate candidate and non-witch Christine O’Donnell ranks as number 45,666 in Amazon’s hardcover list. Do you think that if she was selling as well as Cheney, she’d be appearing on-stage in Iowa at that tea party gathering with Sarah Palin? She got uninvited from that, if you haven’t heard. Something to ponder.
Meanwhile, Cheney’s been wrapping up the week with appearances on the friendly confines of Fox News and other conservative media outlets. With Mr. Powell and Ms. Rice out of the way, who’s he going after next?
“Well, I’ve never gotten around the question of her having left the governorship of Alaska midterm ... I’d like to know more about that,” said Cheney.
On Sean Hannity’s Fox show Thursday night Cheney opined on how he thinks the incumbent is going to have a tough time next November.
“I think the economy is clearly going to be a major problem for him,” said Cheney.
Then Cheney took a shot at Mr. Obama’s experience, saying that, as vice president, he had traveled to Illinois to campaign for Obama’s opponent in Obama’s first Senate race. Obama won, and Cheney swore him in – that’s one of the duties of the vice president.
