Dick Cheney's Memoir
Published on September 1, 2011 by Sara Foss

Dick Cheney's memoir just came out and, no, I don't plan to read it, because I never read political memoirs.

However, I'm enjoying reading what people have to say about it, and I especially enjoyed this news report, which informs us that Condoleezza Rice became the third Bush administration official to accuse Cheney of lying in the memoir titled "In My Time." According to Reuters, Rice said that she "kept the president fully and completely informed about every 'in and out' of the negotiations with the North Koreans," "countering the former vice president's assertion that Rice misled the president about nuclear diplomacy with North Korea."

Wait, you mean Cheney's kind of a jerk? Who knew?

Over at Harper's, Scott Horton posted a list of questions reporters should ask Cheney, about incidents that aren't really discussed in the book, and that "Cheney would perhaps rather not recollect." My favorite involves a relatively minor incident: the time Cheney shot his hunting buddy in the face.
