This is just a blather post. But I wanted to mentioned that I watched Frontline last night. The topic was the politics over the last 20 years around the issue of global warming.

It was striking that the current Bush administrations policy processes were almost identical to the lead up to the Iraq invasion/occupation. And I was shocked (although I shouldn't be by now) at just how powerful and influential Cheney has been. In the serious, key issues of the day, Cheney has been really acting as the defacto president.

I know. Duh. I guess a small part of me wondered if there wasn't a lot of hype built into the CW that Bush is a puppet. No longer.
