Oliphant rips into Cheney, exposing him for what he is.

Cheney proves his irrelevance

By Thomas Oliphant, Globe Columnist | October 6, 2004

THE COUNTRY doesn't need Dick Cheney any more.

After his 90 minutes on the stage last night,

it is clear he is no longer an essential person in politics, and government.

Four years ago, he had a glow of the Wizard of Oz about him

filling an obvious hole in his running mate's background; last night

Cheney was just the grumpy old man behind the curtain

Can you help us out?
