After Dick Cheney’s speech yesterday, the journalists at McClatchy’s DC bureau fact-checked what he said and found a lot of omissions and misstatements. This morning on KIRO/Seattle, bureau chief John Walcott joined me to recap them.
My favorite part of the speech was when Cheney accused the Obama administration of not following through on its promise of open government. That’s like Barry Bonds accusing another player of not taking a drug test. Or Bristol Palin being a spokesperson for abstinence. Or the “Lost” writers complaining about another show’s plot being too confusing.
