The author is an International Relations Theory student with an accidental Cheney obsession. This can be blamed in equal parts on a character study assignment, Dick’s possession of two man-sized safes, and those gray, merciless eyes.


The posts are mainly factual, reflecting the cold and calculating nature of the man: his life, his times, and the emergence of the most interesting political figure since Richard Nixon.

Sources include academic journal articles, thoroughly nonacademic news sites and the occasional book. Factual information is checked against multiple sources and is not cited.
