hang 'em high

This piece from Andrew Sullivan about Dick Cheney's persistent attacks on the Obama administration over the past four months (and this weekend in particular) is EXCELLENT.

It's not just that I'd love to be allowed to frolic in the wading pool of Obamadoration without the bellowing of a grumpy old man getting in the way; I've been astounded by Cheney's insistence on making appearance after appearance, weekend after weekend. Hey, Cheney, you're out! You're done! Your reign of terror has come to an end!

But Sullivan things we should just let Cheney hang himself — and take the Republican Party down with him.

Those of us who want him to face real accountability should, of course, welcome all this. Cheney does not seem to understand that he is incriminating himself further with every interview, every time he adjusts his story, every time he moves from torture as a 'no-brainer' to a 'last resort,' every time he assaults yet another person who knows too much about him and what he did."

I can get behind that. Who wants to book Cheney for next Sunday?

Wouldn't it be great if someone would just put Cheney on the naughty step for a while and make him think about what he's done??
