It's a good thing nothing is really going on because otherwise Dick Cheney's determination to go out looking like Lionel Barrymore in 'It's a Wonderful Life' would be worth more notice.
Vice President Dick Cheney pulled a muscle in his back on Monday while moving boxes and will be in a wheelchair for Tuesday’s inauguration ceremony.
Considering his alleged heart problems (the problems are real, it's the heart that's alleged) and his wealth what boxes were so important that only Dick could move them? Must be his line of CIA Operative trading cards.
In any case, I guess the old "history will vindicate me" line is not off to a good start when even Assrocket at Powerline tries to walk it back.
From this in July 2005:
It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can't get anyone to notice.
Everything considered, I give the Bush administration a B-.
Four letters off, but it's a start.
