"But I'll Miss Sheriff Lobo"

This little bit about Cheney, via Dan Froomkin, makes yesterday's victory on the Iraq vote in the senate all the sweeter.
"There was a call that came in from Republican leadership 5:00 to Cheney's office that said look, you need to get down here right away. It looks like the vote is going to be very, very close, very tight. His motorcade sped away, he was on the Hill. As being president of the Senate, he was there for the tie-breaking vote. He did not need to cast that vote, because obviously there was that two-vote spread, so it made it a moot point, but very clearly every step of the way is important to this administration."
Won the vote and made Cheney miss his favorite afternoon reruns. You can't beat that.

Ohmigod, you mean they've brought back "When Things Were Rotten"?

(There's an industrial-strength challenge for trivia buffs.)

I'm surprised he didn't have a small coronary from the extra excertion.

His performance was simply no better than this clip from the correspondents' dinner last night. Crooks and Liars has the goods...if you can call them that. Painful.

If Cheney comes out of his hole and doesn't get to vote, that means six more weeks of winter!

Nice 70s reference there, SWA. I wonder if Dick Van Patten will play Cheney in the made-for-TV movie about this admin.

If you do a google images search on "snarl," you get a nice assortment of images. First five are animals, then Marylyn Manson, then Cheney.

They made the Penguin miss his afternoon tea with the Masters of Evil? For shame

Hmm. I tried the Google image search, THous, and Cheney wasn't there.

Maybe having the "safe search" feature on keeps him from popping up. I can respect that.

Whatever happened to Dick Gautier?
