    Stewart's and Letterman's jokes aren't saying: "aww, isn't Dick Cheney haplessly cute and lovable"

    They're saying: "he's an asshole"

    Also, making jokes is their job.

    Whereas Jeb Bush and McClellan's jobs are political leader, and spokesman for a leader, respectively.

    Either Scott and Jeb are trying to minimize Cheney's offense, or they're trying to distance themselves from him.

    If you're actually a leader with some gravitas (or in McClellan's case, the spokesman for one), if you need to distance yourself from a reprehensible renegade (soon-to-be-former) member of your team, you f***ing do it with some sense of responsibility.
