WWW.THESMOKINGGUN.COM, after months of hardnosed digging and probing, have really gotten the goods on Dick Cheney! They found a list of demands he makes of hotels where he stays while on government business. The list has been reprinted and rebraodcast numerous times. Keith Olbermann spent hours on the Dan PAtrick show plugging the list that he was planning to reveal on his own MSNBC show.
Woo hoo… this must be really juciy stuff. It must be something SHOCKING, something the Powers That Be don’t want you to know, something that will rip the lid off this Administration.
What could it be? What could it reveal about our Veep? What do his insane demands reveal about his black heart.
Maybe the List Will Prove He’s a Rich, Out-of-touch Elitist!
Yeah, maybe he demands a gallon of caviar and a bottle of Dom Perrignon, and a classical string quartet, all bought by us taxpayers!
Maybe The List Will Show That He’s a Stereotypical Christian Hypocrite!
Yeah, maybe the hero of the Christian Right demanded a topless Oriental masseuse, or a stack of Penthouse magazines. Maybe he asked for a kilo of cocaine, or a case of Jack Daniels! Maybe he ran up a fortune in Spectravision bills!
Maybe the List Will Show He’s an Utter Incompetent!
THAT’S gotta be it! Olbermann and the Smoking Gun found that he ordered a copy of “The Middle East for Dummies.”
In any event, his demands are SURE to be ridiculous, extravagant, and/or incredibly expensive. right? I mean, even the most hateful, biased, liberal reporter wouldn’t try to make a story of a non-story, just to embarrass the Vice PResident. So, what WERE the insane demands he made?
Decaf coffee… Diet Sprite… water… the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal… an extra lamp… a temperature of 68 degress, and a TV set to Fox News.
SHOCKING! Why, he might as well resign immediately!
Look, when George W. Bush or Dick Cheney does or says something stupid and/or embarrassing, I don’t blame liberals for running with it! I EXPECT comedians, commentators, columnists and cartoonists to blast the Bush Administration whenever it provides them with ammo (as it frequently does!). Liberals wouldn’t be human if they didn’t gloat over their enemies’ foibles and gaffes. They wouldn’t be human if they didn’t make hay of the Veep’s hunting accident (I know perfectly well that Mallard Fillmore would have spent months mocking John Kerry if he’d done such a thing on a hunting trip).
But did ANYBODY at Smoking Gun or on Keith Olbermann’s staff really think there was anything shocking, embarrassing or even mildly amusing on that list? if so, I’ll be damned if I can see it.
Are these clowns just so blinded by anger and partisanship that EVERYTHING a member of this administration does, however innocuous, appears comical (at best) or sinister??
