The veep stopped by to address the Heritage Foundation here in Chicago today. The Tribune reports:

Vice President Cheney today attacked Congressional leaders as the intellectual heirs to Sen. George McGovern's "far left" policies of the Vietnam era and warned withdrawal from Iraq could result in the devolution of the country into a new version of Taliban-era Afghanistan.

I'd be more willing to trust Darth Cheney if non-Taliban-era-Afghanistan, aka the Afghanistan of Right Now, wasn't at risk of turning into Taliban-era Afghanistan II, as the New York Times reported, um, yesterday. You might have seen something about that on the cover of Newsweek... if you don't live in America (image via Huffington Post):
