The Wizard of Oz

Via TBogg, this from Eleanor Clift on the subject of Bush’s agreement to testify before the full 9/11 Commission, but only if Uncle Dick is at his side:

A top Republican strategist dubbed the legal document striking the unusual deal “the Wizard of Oz letter” because it strips away the myth that Bush is in charge. Until now, it’s been all speculation about Vice President Cheney’s influence. With the revelation of the tandem testimony, nobody with a straight face can deny Cheney is a co-president or worse, the puppeteer who pulls Bush’s strings.

… Try thinking about it this way: can anyone imagine Bush’s father in a similar situation bringing his vice president?
