Eyes On Cheney Eyes As Fitz Eyes Cheney
Read this recent update.
Imagine what Cheney is thinking.
What do you see in his eyes?
Those are not your grandmother's carbuncles.
"... the timing [of events outlined] suggests an attempt to obscure
Cheney's role, and possibly his legal culpability. The vice president is shown
by the indictment to be aware of and interested in Plame and her CIA status
long before her cover was blown."
Have some empathy. Your eyes would be in bad shape too, if you were implicated in this leak investigation.
Fitzgerald is not a good adversary for Cheney. Neither is Jack Mutha, for that matter. The character contrasts are too stark.
Incidentally, did you notice Cheney's eyes becoming carbuncular* only after his foul mouth tirade in front of some Senators a couple of years ago? Maybe political infection?
Fitzgerald's press conference now looks like it was Cheney's sixth deferment.
The first five deferments saved Cheney from going to Vietnam.
The sixth 'deferment' has saved him from being indicted - - for the time being.
As the article continues:
"Even some White House aides privately wonder whether
Libby was seeking to protect Cheney from political embarrassment.
One of them noted with resignation,
"Obviously, the indictment speaks for itself."
Deferment or not, it's still possible Cheney will be indicted.
Tom DeFrank of the Daily New, now says Cheney's relationship with the President has cooled.
Without Bush's solid support and public opinion, Cheney's power continues to erode and his political exposure expands. Without power, what does he have? Character?
Ask not for whom the chickenhawk cackles.
Do ask those on the receiving end of these allegations -not just Plame's contacts, but Plame herself and her associates, along with related parties.
Recall those eyes. Now, notice the projection of Cheney's conscious or subconscious feelings.
Thanks to his government rolodex, Cheney was once made the CEO of Halliburton. Cheney's record as a CEO was judged weak due to poor asbestos-related acquisitions. He managed to make money for himself though.
Bush may have saved "big time" big time when he made him VP. If not for Iraq and Afghanistan, Halliburton may have faced big unprofitable trouble from "big time's" days.
Now Cheney has to worry about being implicated by Rove, Libby, or others. It looks like a number of folks may have committed crimes, in response to Joe Wilson's politics. Did the Bush admin. criminalize politics?
Cheney is in trouble, not just because of what he told Libby, as noted in the investigation, but because of the resulting damage likely done to Plame, her colleagues, and her covert contacts.
Even if Cheney escapes indictment, like he escaped Vietnam, the consequence of Plamegate and the Iraq War will weigh on his conscious.Can you see it in his eyes yet?
If eyes are the windows into the soul, then Cheney watchers should consider this:
... And thus o'er-sized with coagulate gore,
With eyes like carbuncles, the hellish Pyrrhus (Cheney?)
Old grandsire Priam seeks.
...Striking too short at Greeks ("Plot Against Wilson"?) ;
his antique sword (I. Lewis Libby?) , Rebellious to his arm, lies where it falls ("Grand Jury"?),
Repugnant to command: unequal match'd, Pyrrhus at Priam drives;
in rage strikes wide (Compromise Plame's status and contacts?);
...So, as a painted tyrant, Pyrrhus stood, And like a neutral to his will and matter, Did nothing.
But, as we often see, against some storm, A silence in the heavens, the rack stand still,
he bold winds speechless and the orb below As hush as death, anon the dreadful thunder
Doth rend the region, so, after Pyrrhus' pause, (Cheney now trying to smear war criitcs?)
Aroused vengeance sets him new a-work (post Libby's plea or trial? further Indictments?)
Selective parallels? Secret parts of mis - fortune - from Hamlet's discussion with an actor?
Update: Cheneymammon gets sloppy.
*Note - Another possibility - The redness and inflammation are just illusions due to poor photo editing and/or Cheney's reaction to flashbulbs, not boils.
We are not eye specialists, nor are we professional photographers, so we'll refrain from making a definitive judgement as to why they are the way they are.
