Originally, this was going to be a recap and critique of the remarks made by Dick Cheney yesterday during an interview with a pair of conservative radio talk show hosts. But really, how many ways are there to describe his latest round of mischaracterizations, half-truths and outright lies? So instead, let's look at the some of the tough questions that he subjected himself to in the interest of getting his version of reality out to the American people.

I'm wondering, Mr. Vice President, whether some politicians are -- they prefer to make political points rather than winning the war.

Nancy Pelosi thought nothing of going to Syria's Assad with an alternative Democratic foreign policy, and, yet, balked, as we know, at meeting with our President -- as did Reid -- about funding the troops. How dangerous is this to the success of our important mission?

I don't quite understand. What is this running off to meet with these tyrannical thugs? And yet they don't want to go and sit down with the President and work out a way forward to win the war?

Who is, in the Congress, would be the biggest stumbling block, in your mind, when it comes to success in Iraq?

We deeply appreciate your steadfastness in emphasizing the importance of this war on terrorism to our public.

Mr. Vice President, I'm so glad we had a chance to talk to you. You act out of principle, not polls, and I know that a lot of Americans appreciate that. Thanks for coming to Chicago.

Oh, ouch. Dick Cheney hasn't faced such a grilling from a skeptical media since being forced to admit to Brit Hume that Harry Whittington was sorry for getting in front of his gun.
