How preposterous would Cheney have to be to not believe him?

Tom Tomorrow has figured out the source of Safire's "Air Force One threatened" and "terrorist-mole-in-the-White-House" theories after 9/11: none other than friendly Dick Cheney.

Safire, by the way, is a good illustration of the state of mainstream intellectualism in America. We have a man who is smart enough to correctly decline a Latin adjective and use it in a witty new phrase, and yet who is so credulous and uncritical that he believes stories silly enough to make your 4-year-old nephew wet his pants with laughter.

Anyway, perhaps the next time Dear Leader wonders if terrorists ever "put us politely on notice" before attacking, he can ask Cheney for his ideas on the matter.
