Darth Cheney Definitely Is Inside The Deciders' OODA Loop

I mean, I know that once he steps into a room, the temperature may drop ten degrees, and he has a unique talent with cougars, but can he really be this awesome?

JEANNE CUMMINGS {generic Beltway MSM Hack}: I think that the country actually suffered a setback this week. This debate was supposed to be about edifying the reasons why the Bush White House had its policies and Obama has their own policy, but if the presumption is Guantanamo was going to be closed either Bush, McCain, or Obama, it just got much more difficult this week because the Vice President made it political. He went on shows saying basically “I don't want to be the member of the House who sees terrorists brought to a jail in my district.” And that changed this debate in a way that has made it much, much harder to close Guantanamo, which the President is already committed to doing.

....

CUMMINGS: Cheney really did damage to the effort to keep our country secure by turning this into a political issue. We were going to have to deal with this and to make it a political issue is not helpful. It's just not.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER {second in line in the Awesome Olympics behind the Dark Lord}: Cheney is the one who turned it into a political issue? I thought it was a 90-6 vote in the Senate. Just about every Democrat in the Senate-

CUMMINGS: No, Cheney started making political arguments a week ago. That is when you did start to see the tide turn up on Capitol Hill. It was after Cheney started to talk about “I don't want to be the member who says I brought a terrorist to a jail in my district.”

KRAUTHAMMER: Oh, so Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, says he that will not allow any terrorist out of Gitmo onto American streets or even in American jails -- it's because he had heard it from Cheney and was hypnotized into believing it?

CUMMINGS: Not hypnotized. Cheney hit a nerve. There's no doubt about it, it's a good political argument. It's a strong one.

Well, duh, sweetheart. After all of these years, do you not know with whom you are tangling when you invoke the Dark Lord's name? Let me refresh your memory.
