Dick Stepping Out Behind George's Back?

It looks like the passionate embrace and fond cuddling phase is over for the Bush-Cheney marriage. Rumor has it that Cheney is stepping out behind Georgie's back, committing what some might call infidelities of a highly criminal kind. And we thought this marriage was made in heaven.

Steve Clemons has the inside poop:

The zinger of this information is the admission by this Cheney aide that Cheney himself is frustrated with President Bush and believes, much like Richard Perle, that Bush is making a disastrous mistake by aligning himself with the policy course that Condoleezza Rice, Bob Gates, Michael Hayden and McConnell have sculpted.

According to this official, Cheney believes that Bush can not be counted on to make the "right decision" when it comes to dealing with Iran and thus Cheney believes that he must tie the President's hands.

On Tuesday evening, i spoke with a former top national intelligence official in this Bush administration who told me that what I was investigating and planned to report on regarding Cheney and the commentary of his aide was "potentially criminal insubordination" against the President.
Okay, so what else is new in Washington, where relationships are a dime a dozen and people swapping partners is about as common as a new penny.
