Cheney to give Republican response to Obama national security speech tomorrow

Apparently, Ronald Reagan had previous commitments.

Seriously, though, at some point someone in the Republican party is going to have to speak up and tell Cheney to STFU. The man was at – what? – 20% in the polls? And he’s the Republican giving the speech responding to Obama’s national security address? Of course, Cheney chose himself to be the GOP point man, but as Joe posted this morning, it’s not like the Republicans are trying to distance themselves from good old Dick.

And while the media is busy covering Cheney, they might want to as Mr. National Security where bin Laden is, why they let him escape at Tora Bora, why they didn’t keep after him, and ultimately why they pretty much gave up.
