IRONY OVERLOAD ALERT: Nigeria charges Dick Cheney in bribery case

Nigeria will file charges against former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and officials from five foreign companies including Halliburton Co. over a $180 million bribery scandal, a prosecutor at the anti-graft agency said.

NIGERIA is upset over financial fraud? Mr. Pot meet Mr. Kettle. HALLIBURTON is involved in bribery? I’m shocked. Just shocked.



1:5 say Cheney worst VP ever, who is #2?

One of out of five Americans think that Dick Cheney is the worst vice president in American history. Twenty-three percent of those questioned in a CNN-Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday say that Cheney is the country’s worst vice president, when compared to his predecessors. Another 41 percent feel that Cheney is a poor vice president, with 34 percent rating him a good number two. Only 1 percent of those polled say that Cheney is the best vice president in U.S. history.

Whether he’s worst, poor, good or best, he is 1 on a list of 1. Is there even another VP about whom this question could be asked? Quick, name another VP who did not move up to president who had any real impact on the nation? I suppose you have to go with Spiro Agnew if only because he was indicted and replaced in office. Beyond that it is impossible to think of anything that noxious man even did.

So is the list

  1. Cheney
  2. Agnew
  3. Everyone else?

Let us then give Mr. Cheney credit for disproving John Nance Garner (32nd VP) who said that being VP is “not worth a bucket of warm piss.” Let that be his epitaph: “Dick Cheney — he made the VP worthy of a bucket of warm piss.”

Company introduces “Sarah-Cuda” hunting bow

What’s pink, cuddly and can bring down a moose or at least a Biden? The GOP hopes it’s Sarah Palin, they might want to invest in Lakota Industries adorable new hunting bow. While the pink camo is certainly fitting  … you really have to hope anything your hunting is color blind. Or maybe it will distract Dick Cheney if you ever have to go hunting with the current VP.

Other potential candidate/product tie ins:

  • The Joe Biden Leaf Blower — How much hot air do you need?
  • The John McCain Pistol Holster — Allows you to shoot from the hip and automatically hit your own foot.
  • Barack Obama Holy Water — Everybody keeps telling me he can perform miracles.
Are Bidens in season?

Are Bidens in season?

Nice move: The company will donate 10 percent of Sarah-Cuda proceeds to the National Association for Down Syndrome.
