some things never change

You know, in a way you have to admire Dick Cheney for his sheer stubborness. Being asked a comfortable leading question by a sycophantic conservative talk-show radio host in North Dakota about waterboarding terrorists (they called it "dunking," like what you do to your teacher in a booth at the school fair), Cheney without blinking said again that waterboarding them was a "no brainer." He did say, however that he didn't think it was torture. Funny, we thought it was torture when we sentenced a Japanese officer to 15 years hard labor for waterboarding American POWs during WWII.

Also in the "some things never change" category is the fact that the Bush clan -- Papa George, Brother Neil, and Brother Marvin, are all profiting quite nicely from the Iraq war. Gosh, who would have thought that such a visionary foreign policy based on messianic visions of transforming the Middle East into a veritable garden of democracy would also have the nifty side-effect of adding to BushCo's wealth? Such a bonus. Oh, and don't forget Dick Cheney, earning that $34 million retirement package from Halliburton, which has also made a killing in Iraq.

The definition of profiteering is similar to Potter Stewart's definition of obscenity: I know it when I see it.
