Dick Cheney Was Right

Here's the Associated Press:

"The House Tuesday passed a bill to keep the government running until mid-November, with both Democrats and Republicans determined to avoid a shutdown. The bill, which passed 404-14, also provides funding to continue Pentagon operations in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Dick Cheney was right: The war "may not be popular with the public -- it doesn't matter" because in Washington, the will of the people is a punchline rather than a mandate.
