Il se penche vers le secret

"Penchant for secrecy" has become a tiresome cliché, thanks to Cheney. Are there any other penchants in current usage? Here it comes again: Bush 'Very Satisfied' With Cheney's Explanation - does anyone not find that says more about Bush than it does about Cheney's explanation?

Cheney and his spokesmen Bush and McClellan have all reached new heights in obfuscatory answers to straightforward questions, as this article bizarrely shows. We know Armstrong hasn't been able to keep her story straight, and we have heard conflicting stories now on the role of alcohol, and how close it was to dusk. Is it just me, or is there a palpable air of more inconvenient details waiting to reveal themselves? Because I'm palpating that air right now.
