Cheney Attacks Reid: Dems Rejoice

There can be nothing better for the fortunes of Democratic leaders in Congress than to be attacked by Vice President Cheney, especially on Iraq. Today, Cheney Accommodated Dems:

The battle of words over an Iraq war-spending bill intensified this afternoon as Vice President Dick Cheney suggested that Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic majority leader, was indulging in cynical political calculation. Mr. Reid dismissed the vice president’s words as the utterances of President Bush’s “attack dog,” and said the administration remained in thrall to a failed policy, one that Democrats would continue trying to change.

Can you doubt that Dems are thinking "more please" from Mr. "Shoot Them In The Face," whose personal approval rating is around 32%?

    Sen. Reid must really be irritating the bozos at 1600, but it saddens me that members of the US Armed Forces continue to die & be injured while Bu$h xliii & Cheney prance through their pathetic alpha dog pretenses (pun on the rover intended).
