Not that the whole "hate magnet" theory isn't really incisive, Peggy. Truly. My favorite part? That's it's just so worthy of a WSJ columnist.

So a couple of weeks ago Peggy Noonan wrote an opinion piece for the WSJ saying that she thought Cheney might resign in order to free his boss from the burden of his low numbers.

Now the online Moonie rag Insight quotes "senior GOP sources" saying that Dick and Bush just aren't feelin' it anymore.

Salon's War Room quotes Noonan spinning a complex web of interdependent reasons for Cheney's departure, but really, come on, there's only one reason, right?

How do you give the Republicans an advantage in 2008 if there's no sitting VP running?

If you think BushCo gives a fuck about Cheney's numbers or if you seriously believe they might split over POLICY DECISIONS, then you really should start paying better attention.

If there's one thing BushCo can be consistantly counted on to be, it's a cold, calculating power machine: how to get it, how to keep it, how to get more.

Of course that's not something Peggy's going to be likely to get into. Not if she wants to keep her WSJ job, and her placemarker in hell.
