Imperials Good, Bad and Ugly

When it comes to pronouncements by The Imperials, there's the good, the bad and the ugly.

Let's start with the bad.... on Friday The Decider rejected Congressional criticism of his Iraq war plan, giving what he probably considered the final word on the subject.... "I'm the decision maker." We'll see about that, Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) will commence a Judiciary Committee hearing tomorrow on "Exercising Congress's Constitutional Power to End a War."

The ugly.... In a Newsweek interview with Snarly Dick conducted by Richard Wolffe on January 25, Wolffe asked about "criticism from Scowcroft about not knowing you anymore--people have got quite personal, people you worked with before. You wouldn't be human if it didn't have some reaction."

Cheney's response: "Well, I'm vice president and they're not. (Laughter)." Ugly arrogance.

But there is good news from the Imperials.... Rice the Unready in an interview in Brussels, Belgium on Friday was asked "Could you imagine any circumstances under which you would be on a Republican ticket?"

To which Rice replied, "Oh, I'm going back to Stanford." Good!

The question is when? The nation's first director of national intelligence John D. Negroponte has moved to State. A demotion for Negroponte, or to step in when Rice prematurely leaves for Stanford? Stay tuned....
