The ability of Dick Cheney to convince himself he has done nothing wrong during his 8 years of disastrous tenure is nothing short of amazing. From Slate:

In an ever-escalating game of chicken between the executive branch and


the rest of the world, Vice President Dick Cheney wants you to


understand that he has done nothing wrong over the past eight years. In


fact, to hear him tell it to Chris Wallace on

Fox News Sunday yesterday

,


we are all safer for his infallibility in the face of our own


complacency. His liberal critics, for their part, answer Cheney's moral


certainty by continuing to vigorously debate all the reasons to let him


off the hook. What other possible response can there be to all that


bristling manliness? History will remember Dick Cheney as the man who


managed to make President George W. Bush

look like a wimp
