That President Bush and Vice President Cheney live in a bubble of flattery and delusion, largely sheltered from the people who are actually suffering from the consequences of their actions, is not exactly news.
But perhaps nothing has crystallized their detachment and self-involvement so vividly as Cheney's assertion yesterday that when it comes to the war in Iraq, it is Bush -- not the soldiers and Marines who fight and die, or their families -- who is bearing the biggest burden.
Does Cheney really believe that Bush's burden is so great? The president tells people he's sleeping just fine, thank you, and in public appearances appears upbeat beyond all reason.
Or does Cheney simply have no idea what it means to go to war? He and Bush, after all, famously avoided putting themselves in the line of fire when it was their time.
Or are they just so wrapped up in themselves they can't see how ridiculous it is to even suggest such a thing?

Damn, there we go again with that phrase 'out of touch with reality'.
Not to be a nuisance but I always have to interject ... they are not out of touch with reality, they are satanists and know exactly what they're doing. Cheney is a man who is visibly evil and malignant... people joke about it but they have no clue. They are in denial of how evil these people really are... so we stick to writing news articles about them instead of lighting a torch.
