A word in praise of Dick Cheney

A short, small one.

Until this week, I would not have thought that any politician could be less sensitive than Cheney, but that's what I get for not underestimating the Teahadis. I mean, Cheney actually showed some slight sensitivity, on one issue, when his daughter decided to be a lesbian. Up to that point, not so  much, but better late than never.

You might suppose that Rand Paul would give some thought to his own record as a father (putrid) before lecturing the people of Baltimore, but no.

But then you might have thought he would have given some thought to the fact that black kids in college might have learned something about their own history, too, before insulting their intelligence, but you'd have been wrong then, too.
