posted by on April 4 at 9:27 AM

What the fuck is up with Dick Cheney? Why is he lurking in the bushes during Bush’s press conference? And God bless C-SPAN for this opening shot…

He's hoping someone will drop a baby or a pet or a weak/ill straggler will be left behind so he can feast.

you're seeing 2 men on the edge of nervous breakdowns, only holding on through the miracle of modern pharmaceuticals.

cheney was 'getting a grip on himself'.

I can't stop watching this.

maybe he is throwing his voice instead of having a radio transmitter hidden on bush.

Did you see the NY Sun's endorsement of Cheney for President? Priceless

Posted by E. Steven | April 4, 2007 10:20 AM

Wow. Cheney must have some really powerful undead mojo going on. To be able to stand out in broad daylight like that without crumbling to ash. Amazing!

I think konstantconsumer may be right. After looking at this clip a few times, Cheney's lips do appear to be moving.

The high-gain transmitter (the one he can use from is office) is on the fritz. Had to control his bitch from close-up today. Can't let him out on his own!!

He simply had to pass gas and decided to spare everyone.

OMG, that was hilarious... I hope there's some award that can be bestowed upon that cameraman and the producer who greenlighted that shot. That was just good journalism.

E.Steven: PLEASE make it happen. PLEASE let Cheney run. The kooks won't be able to take their eyes off their darling, and then in November he can go down to a defeat that will make Goldwater and Mondale look good.

YES. Cheney for GOP candidate '08.

The NY Sun is "concerned with extending Mr. Bush's campaign for freedom around the world and cutting taxes at home". That is rich. I've only recently begun to understand that the neocons actually think they can use force to "spread freedom" like peanut butter. How much you want to bet that there are people out there with colored world maps, thinking about how they can fill the world with red freedom?

^^But watch out, that peanut butter freedom might create life on its own once you open the lid.

My first thought upon seeing this clip was the scene from Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle with the crazy guy:

This your bush? You have a special bond with this bush?
You the king of the forest?

wow. someone needs to make some Cheney'08 bumperstickers.

Posted by konstantconsumer | April 4, 2007 12:50 PM


Seriously, that was my first thought too - Cheney's voice-throwing skills just keep getting better and better!

"Next Up: Cheney Drinks Glass Of Water While Shrub Speaks!"

I think Cheney's infamous "secure, undisclosed location" has finally been identified!

These people (P and VP) are fucking weird.

I would vote for Cheney if it meant the first family of this asshole country included a lesbian single mother.

If he really wanted to be president he would probably have Mary killed just to prevent the scenario.

"I would vote for Cheney if it meant the first family of this asshole country included a lesbian single mother."

Oh that's some genius reasoning. You'd fuck up everything in America and worldwide they way it has been for the last 6 years (and two more to go!) for the sake of putting a lesbian single mother in the first family? A person who has been a total traitor to lesbian and equal marriage rights? A person who campaigns for her far right wing father and then expects everyone to stay out of her business because her life is 'private'?

You know some things are more important than what gender person someone has sex with.

Posted by K X One | April 4, 2007 8:35 PM

Wow. I love the way Bush says "unacceptable" the first time. And Cheney is a creepy weirdo.
Personally, I think we should have a public tar and feathering for the administration.
