Cheney To Make First Larry King Live Appearance Since 'Last Throes' Comment
Tonight at 9 pm EST, Vice President Dick Cheney will make his first appearance on CNN's Larry King Live since May 30, 2005, when he infamously declared that the insurgency in Iraq was in its "last throes" and predicted that "the level of activity that we see today from a military standpoint, I think, will clearly decline." Only recently, in Stephen Hayes's biography of him, has Cheney finally conceded that "it was obviously wrong" to claim the insurgency was in its "last throes." The Progress Report assembled a video compilation of Bush administration officials defending the comment. (Watch it HERE.) You can send questions and comments to Larry King Live here and video questions for the show here. Separately, during an interview with CBS News yesterday, Cheney called himself a "big fan" of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. He also again refused to admit that he is a part of the executive branch, saying instead that he is "a unique creature" in constitutional government.
