Information Clearing House has an interesting article about Dick "Porn Star" Cheney's recent attempt to aerate his hunting partner. Apparently, upon hearing that his vice-president had shot a DC lawyer in the head, Bush said, "Well, it's a start..."
One wonders why a man who has twice been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol is allowed to be the vice-president of the most powerful nation on earth.
Silly me! Of course! What's good enough for the president has to be good enough for the vice-president, but at least Curious George was never actually convicted. We commie-pinko bastards north of the border (I like to call it 'our' line in the permafrost there, eh?) could make it hard for Bush to visit Canada, though.
Alcoholism and criminality are not the only things you need to join this club, however, and shirking one's duty is way up the list of requirements. Dubya technically served some time in the armed forces. Maybe Cheney IS smarter than his boss?
It's a good thing mature, responsible, level-headed people we can trust are in control(???) of 10,000 nuclear warheads. Otherwise, how could we sleep at night?
