Cheney on Wheels

Cheney on Wheels

Outgoing Vice President Dick Cheney coasted through the inauguration of Barack Obama and Joe Biden Tuesday. He was in a wheelchair.

Mr. Cheney pulled a back muscle after spending the weekend hunched over a document shredder in his office.

The former Vice President claims he hurt his back moving boxes out of  his old office, but Stanley I. Kutler of the University of Wisconsin Law School says: “[W]hen the Archives goes to open Cheney’s papers, they are going to find empty boxes.”  A federal judge allowed Mr. Cheney to determine which of his official papers should be preserved.

    A credible theory, I think, only hampered by the fact that since it’s out there, it’s probably masking something even worse.

    He looks like Ebenezer Scrooge in that shot. I’d buy the paper shredder theory.

    Nurse Lenia told me that when she was listening to the Bob & Tom show and someone there mentioned that Cheney hurt his back lifting boxes that contained all of the lies they told for the last eight years.

    Ebeneezer Scrooge nothing. He looks like Mr. Potter from “It’s A Wonderful Life”.

    Do we really need documents to tell us what sort of man Cheney was?

    If there is any justice he’ll be torn limb from limb by rabid dogs in the not-too-distant future.

    He really does remind me of “Mr. Potter” from “It’s a Wonderful Life.” LOL>

    He is 803 years old and has had a gazillion heart attacks does he really expect us to think he needed to move any box for any reason? He didn’t want to have to stand when the swearing in too place.
