Anyone Wonder Where the Vice President Is?


You know, Cheney? Remember him? The VP? The guy they bring out to give a rousing speech when things are going bad, like war confidence drops to zero, or social security momentum dies? The one who supposedly is really running things? Hasn't he been noticeably absent from the throng, except for a photo op or two standing behind Bush while he's trying to save face and stating that he's "pleased with operations in Louisiana thus far" from the Rose Garden?

Washington Post reports he's buying a house.

Well, at least he has a good excuse for being absent from the worst national tragedy in over 100 years. House buying can be a real emotional experience, a bit of a time drain, and extremely distracting.

By the way is he called Richard B. Cheney? In some time people might even forget his name.

Maybe he can donate the old digs to a displaced family?

And our tax dollars are paying his salary. We should know where the hell he is and what he is doing.

Love Bush's speech on his first visit to the destroyed area. "I'm satisfied with the response, but we can do better" yeah, 10,000 dead, very satisfactory. And his call to help Trent Lott re-build his destroyed house, how he's looking forward to sitting on Lott's porch again. Warms the heart, really, doesn't it? That's why Rove sent him back again a few days later. "Can we do a photo op that isn't a total screw up?" must have been the note. Must be exhausting to have someone on such a short leash all the time just to keep things not embarrassing. Must wear a person down after a while. Look to Rove taking an medical leave for exhaustion as this crisis continues to spin out of control.
