Cheney and Ahmadinejad

Nicholas D. Kristof

Twins Separated at Birth ?

Nick Kristof revealed today in a brilliant column in the N.Y. Times that Dick Cheney and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may in fact be twins separated at birth. The circumstantial evidence mobilized in support of this stunning finding by Kristof is persuasive. The two are clearly working in close harmony to stir the Iranian passion for nuclear weapons. It is a toss-up to decide which of the two deserves more credit for driving the Iranian nuclear program. Kristof's column speaks for itself and deserves to be read.

What is astonishing to me is not Kristof's discovery of the relationship between Cheney and Ahmadinejad per se, which I had long suspected in any event, but the comments posted in the Times in response to his column. Do read them. Two clear conclusions emerge:

First, there is in America an almost frightening pent up animosity toward Dick Cheney, and

Second, there is a palpable hunger for a genuine impeachment movement.

I have written earlier about the legal foundations for an impeachment proceeding against Bush and Cheney in a post in this blog, when referring to my classmate Elizabeth Holtzman's book on the case for impeaching Bush and, by extension, Cheney.

Can it be that the time is coming?
