English literature on the Cheney-Bush relationship

Wish I could take credit for this one myself, but I can’t. It is a letter to the editor (me) at my newspaper; yes, there are a few blue people in red states:

Dear editor:

Two quotes by Sir Walter Scott made 200 years ago explain the Cheney-Bush relationship: “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” And, “I cannot tell how the truth may be, I say the tale as it was told to me.”

We should all be aware by now that Vice President Dick Cheney was the invader of Iraq for the purpose of controlling Iraq’s oil and further enriching corporate friends. The first quote by Walter Scott pertains to Cheney and the second explains Bush’s relationship to Cheney.
