The Trouble with Dick

Last night I watched a [documentary] on PBS about Watergate that went over the entire timeline of those days. It was scary how similar some things were to today. So much of what led to the cover up grew out of the dirty tricks campaign against Nixon’s perceived “enemies”. And today the Washington Post has a [front pager] describing Cheney as the force behind leaking classifed info in an effort to “discredit, punish or seek revenge against” opponents of their Iraq policy. We’ve been here before…

Nixon saw dissent as treason. Sounds very close to “You’re either with us or against us.” Will Libby will turn out to be their Dean?

UPDATE 5/14: Andrew Sullivan [comments] on news that Cheney is our (badly aimed) smoking gun…
