Okay, he’s nothing of the sort. In their final installment in the Cheney series, the Washington Post tackles his environmental record. It’s not pretty.

We again see the same methodology: operating in secret, reaching down to the lowest levels of the bureaucracy to effect the policies he wants.

In this case, though, it’s hard to discern a guiding principle at work other than “in any conflict between the environment and business, business is always right.”

Actually, make that “businesses I care about.” Considering he helped destroy commercial fisheries in the Pacific Northwest in order to save a few politically-connected farmers farther upstream.

    Of course Cheney cares about the environment. He wants to be remembered as someone who never met one he couldn’t destroy.
