James Fallows:

"The former vice president, Dick Cheney, has brought dishonor to himself, his office, and his country. I am not aware of another former President or Vice President behaving as despicably as Cheney has done in the ten months since leaving power, most recently but not exclusively with his comments to Politico about Obama's decisions on Afghanistan. (Aaron Burr might win the title, for killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel, but Burr was a sitting Vice President at the time.) Cheney has acted as if utterly unconcerned with the welfare of his country, its armed forces, or the people now trying to make difficult decisions. He has put narrow score-settling interest far, far above national interest."
Selective amnesia for sure.

 Since we can consider Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, all of which haven't shut up or stopped criticizing Republican Presidents since leaving office.

 When they spoke the uber liberal Fallows would say they "spoke truth to power".

 Obviously he's selective on that belief as well. For this he brings dishonor on himself and the profession of journalism.
