I never found BattleStar Galactica to be watchable on a long-term basis. Rather quickly I realized it was only of symptomatic interest as to attitudes to the war amongst a certain kind of people. I suppose it is therefore logical to regard Cheney's opinions and values as relevant to a 9/11 series. I have to skip over the details about Cain.
But, this is years later, after the trendy is over. How could we possibly take seriously a positive view of Cheney? And, by extension, a defense of Cain?
