And the Beat Goes on, Cheney Using a Wheelchair, Part IV

Frank Rich, one of our most widely read newspaper columnists, barked his shins on creativity and resorted to the "disability as evil" metaphor in his Sunday offering in the New York Times ...

PRESIDENT Obama did not offer his patented poetry in his Inaugural Address. He did not add to his cache of quotations in Bartlett’s. He did not recreate J.F.K.’s inaugural, or Lincoln’s second, or F.D.R.’s first. The great orator was mainly at his best when taking shots at Bush and Cheney, who, in black hat and wheelchair, looked like the misbegotten spawn of the evil Mr. Potter in “It’s a Wonderful Life” and the Wicked Witch of the West.
