Shootin' Thru The 'Tubes

I'm still digesting all the news and views that came out during my Heroes Hiatus (which I highly enjoyed!), so here's another installment of Shootin' Thru The 'Tubes:

Digby, fresh from her outing at the Take Back America conference, wonders why is it that it took the vaunted MSM nearly five months to realize that Dick Cheney considers himself his own branch of government. As for the White House, the excuse now appears to be that both Dubya and Dick don't have to follow White House rules. I guess next we will be debating whether the President is in fact part of the executive branch. If so, might I suggest a name change is in order.

With Operation Whack-a-Mole proceeding apace, TPM reader SM notices the sudden fascination with referring to all gun wielding Arabs in Iraq as "Al-Qaeda". I too have noticed the sudden "all al-Qaeda, all the time" reportage of late. Do you suppose it has anything to do with who we are currently teamed up with or has the media decided to simply go back to being stenographers?

"They'll stand up, we'll stand down" appears to again be operative, at least as far as possible drawdowns next spring are concerned. However, Cernig has the skinny on this pale pony rider.
