Republicans Line Up to Mock Vice President
Sunday, February 19, 2006
(SNN Washington) Going on the second week since Vice President Dick Cheney shot a 78 year-old lawyer, Republicans have been having a lot of fun at his expense.
Jeb Bush is rumored to be related to the president.
It started with Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who is rumored to be related to the president. Governor Bush wore bright stickers on his chest during a lunch reception and said, "I'm a little concerned Dick Cheney is going to walk in."
On the program Face the Nation, Bill Frist said "Whittington looks great," after viewing him on television. This is of course a jab both at Cheney and Senator Frist himself. Who could have forgotten that Bill Frist last summer after viewing a tape of Terry Schiavo said "She certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli."
Cheney is a real butthead.
Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, showing his usual wit, said, "Yeah, that Cheney is a real butthead, that's the kind of thing you'd expect a gay to do."
And Senator and Vietnam veteran Chuck Hagel of Nebraska told the Omaha World Herald, "If he'd been in the military, he would have learned gun safety." This is of course commentary on the fact that when Cheney was eligible for the draft in the Vietnam era, he decided he had better things to do. When asked about Hagel's comments, White House Spokesman Scott McClellan said, "Oh Snap!"
Wow, so in Texas, a lawyer must give notice before sodomizing the client!?
