Cheney threatens legislators

The sickening news generated by the White House just comes out so blindingly fast that's it's just plain work to keep up with all the criminality, but here's one more dumb move:

Not that it's any big surprise, but apparently VP Dick "Halliburton is not a Briefcase" Cheney is threatening, and in person, legislators including Senators McCain, Graham and Warner. Said elected representatives are trying to come up with some sort of rational plan to investigate the torture incidents at Gitmo and other spots along the gulag archipeligo.

He's told them, in essence, that if they go forward with any kind of investigation of prisoner abuse the Preeez will veto next year's Defense Department budget! WTF?
