Can you say “missing the point”… again?!?! The Washington Post chooses
to focus on the appearance of our representative in comparison to the other dignitaries at the Auschwitz liberation ceremony. Maybe a slightly more (note sarcasm) worthwhile angle for a story would be to point out that Cheney represent the country that sacrificed many lives to assist the liberation in the first place. By contrast, many of the others sitting next to him were representing nations that, at best, stood by and watched the atrocities happen or, at worst, were responsible for what took place there. Come to think of it, back in the 40s the Nazis dressed a little nicer than the common American soldier. All polished and neat and ready to kill a jew or two. I mean... when is the last time you saw a member of British Royalty dress up in a Marine uniform for a rave party? No offense, but… ummm… I’ll take a warm jacket and some slow to market liberation over a nice suit and tie with a dose of genocide any day.
