Young Cheney

by Richard Brookhiser

Re: Aaron’s post on the villagers in northern Iraq who named one of their children Dick Cheney. If the broadcaster’s description of them. phonetically transcribed by CNN as “Yasiti,” was meant to be “Yazidi,” then they would belong to the northern Iraqi minority that worships Satan. They also call him (Him?) the Peacock Angel. I am not clear whether their worship is admiring, or propitiating (Here’s your offering, now leave us alone.)

Will the critics finally admit that we have a multilateral coalition?
