"First of all, there's no charge," Cheney said. "What's the allegation of wrongdoing here? Frankly, there isn't any."
"They keep rolling over rocks hoping they can find something, but there really hasn't been anything come up that would suggest there was any wrongdoing of any kind," Cheney told CNN's Larry King, adding that he did not feel that Bush senior political adviser Karl Rove need testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the matter.
"The president feels strongly -- and I do too, I agree with him -- that it's important for us to pass on these offices we occupy to our successors in as good a shape as we found them. And that means protecting and preserving the integrity of those processes," Cheney said.
Cheney added, "I think that an offer has been made" wherein senior officials would meet with members of Congress -- "but not under oath, not in public, no transcript, to discuss these issues."
O.K. I think I'm going to try and watch this.
So if you see a news report tomorrow morning about some whack job in Clay County who killed his flat screen TV with a spiked flail and then ran himself through with a hand-and-a-half medieval broadsword, then A) You probably saw it on Captain Spaulding's site first, and B) It was probably me.
Here's hoping I have sense enough to just take a deep breath and change the channel.
