They were all this President’s men — Cheney and Rummy and Wolfie and Bolton — neoconservatives, hard-line conservatives, iron-fisted conservatives, unyielding conservatives.
Once they were not only The Untouchables but also The Unbudgeables. Now there is only one.
Don Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and now John Bolton have been bulldozed and/or forklifted out of power. Once the Team Bush Neocons controlled Bush’s Situation Room. Now they can caucus in a telephone booth — except it is unlikely Cheney can find one anymore.
