  •  Howard Fineman provides a good example of why (8+ / 0-)

    I can't stand milquetoast centrist beltway pundidiots. He says in kos's link that Cheney has "adroitly capitalized" on the current situation. For the sake of the Democratic Party and progressive ideals everywhere, I fervently plea that Mister Dick keep "adroitly capitalizing" -while support for Obama grows every time Cheney opens his soulless piehole.

      something tangible has to be gained:

      1. Has Cheney garnered increased power, respect, gravitas?  No.
      1. Has Cheney damaged Obama or the Democratic Party?  No.  Some would say, "Quite the contrary."
      1. Has Cheney recast his dreadful legacy that will remain in recorded history as him being the longest serving criminal in the White House?  No.
      1. Has Cheney seen his popularity soar with the American people, giving him hope that he's just been misunderstood and now folks are starting to "get" him?  Well, polls aren't out yet, but I'm betting "No" on this one. too.

      So, Howard "Pundit" Fineman where's your evidence to support your claim of "adroit capitalization" by Cheney?  Eh?

        very disappointing.  Frankly I'm rather shocked by his comments the last two days.
