Scooter Who?

Loyalty is a one-way street in Cheneyville. Asked by Bob Schieffer today on "Face the Nation" about conversations with his former Chief of Staff since Scooter Libby fell on his sword for him, the Vice President answered, "There hasn't been any occasion to do so."

Schieffer repeated his question. "But as your friend, wouldn't you even call and express your regrets?" Schieffer asked Cheney. "I mean, I am surprised to hear you say that."

Cheney said again, "I just—-I haven't had occasion to do that." Asked if he felt at all responsible for Libby's demise, Cheney said, "Bob, I'm simply not going to get into the case. And I think it would be inappropriate for me to do so."

Alberto Gonzales, take note: When you take the fall, this bunch doesn't send flowers or even call.
