One thought on “Cheney Unleashed (and absolutely right)”
“The president of the United States now for 50 years is followed at all times, 24 hours a day, by a military aide carrying a football that contains the nuclear codes that he would use and be authorized to use in the event of a nuclear attack on the United States…He doesn’t have to check with anybody. He doesn’t have to call the Congress. He doesn’t have to check with the courts. He has that authority because of the nature* of the world we live in.”
dang. good reality check. how would you like to be the guy holding that football? (insert funny joke about an NFL player who fumbled in a key game this weekend who shouldn’t get the job…)
*for hope, see “Joy to the World”, third stanza!
