You will not be surprised to learn…

In Michael Gerson’s new book we learn Dick Cheney doesn’t care about people. FromWaPo is this: (viaTP)

He [Gerson] recounts meetings in which Cheney’s office tried to kill proposals
to increase training of death-row defense lawyers, transition
assistance for prisoners and aid for Hurricane Katrina victims.

“The storm had also revealed a political and moral chasm in the

opportunity to open a debate on race and poverty. Anti-government
Republicans saw Katrina as an opportunity to cut off medicine to old
people. It confirmed the worst image of Republicans as the party of
shriveled hearts.”

UPDATE:Oyster has more. No profanity though the gulf between Bush’s promises and the subsequent reality is profane.
