Bronx cheer for Cheney

The Washington Post's Harold Meyerson devoted his column today to our "feel-good veep," who justified his cussing out of Pat Leahy the other day by saying it made him feel better, and, Meyerson reminds us, rationalized the dividend tax cut, a boon for the rich, by saying it was his party's "due" after the midterm elections.

"Considering that he's out of the public eye most of the time, it's remarkable that Cheney has become just as much of a polarizing figure as his boss," Meyerson wrote. "But then, Cheney is a master of high-impact public appearances."

Cheney felt most of the impact of his appearance last night at Yankee Stadium, where he was booed by the fans when his mug appeared on the Jumbotron during the seventh-inning stretch. Maybe the crowd mistook him for a Red Sox fan.
