Who’s the cynic?
: Pardon me for thinking it’s cynical of Dick Cheney to warn that another terrorist attack is imminent.
So now whenever whatever attack happens, the White House can say that they did warn us this time — even though the warning is utterly nonspecific, utterly unhelpful, utterly uninformative (because they don’t know much more).
You could say I’m the cynic for saying this. Or you could say that Cheney et al are the cynics.
