I never thought spending a week inside the mind of Dick Cheney would be an enjoyable experince but this book is really good!!

Love him or loathe him you have to admire his mad political skilz. He basically is the President without being the President and with Bush's blessing. OK so maybe that last part isn't so hard to believe but the way he plays his game on the world's chessboard is masterful.

Oh and in an interview he said he really likes the nickname "Darth Cheney" because it humanizes him. So much so he dresses his dog as Lord Sith.
