The all-important Cheney endorsement

The point is not that Dick Cheney’s formal endorsement of John McCain and Sarah Palin was surprising for which candidate he endorsed — as one CNN analyst that I heard yesterday was exasperatedly emphasizing — but, rather, that he chose to make such a public endorsement at all.  Presumably, Cheney’s support for McCain would lead him to want to see the latter elected; yet Cheney is also assuredly aware of his own unpopularity, and possesses the logic necessary to concude that a public endorsement will not exactly help his chosen candidate.  This leads to the conclusion that Cheney is either extremely short-sighted, painfully vindictive, or simply inflated by an overwhelming sense of self-importance.  Or, of course, all three.
