Cheney’s poor grasp on reality



Last night’s Vice Presidential Debate between Vice President Dick Cheney and Dem candidate John Edwards was quality viewing and a nice follow-up to last week’s presidential debates. Unfortunately, VP Cheney said to hopeful Edwards during the debate: “Tonight is the first time I’ve met you, sir.”

Whoops.

VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY DELIVERS REMARKS AT NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST FEBRUARY 1, 2001 SPEAKER: VICE PRESIDENT RICHARD B. CHENEY CHENEY: Thank you. Thank you very much. Congressman Watts, Senator Edwards, friends from across America and distinguished visitors to our country from all over the world, Lynne and I honored to be with you all this morning. I’ve always counted myself fortunate to have been raised in a part of the country where the Almighty chose to do some of his finest work. (Photo above taken at said breakfast)

Cheney forgetting his prior meeting with Kerry is the most glaring error, but the entire catalog of inaccuracies VP Cheney delivered is catalogued here.

Lastly, witz.org randomly ran into Michael Moore speaking at the NYC Union Square Barnes & Nobles yesterday. Moore was adamant in stating that if Bush gets re-relected, the military draft will be re-instated, making all young males between 18-26 in the crosshairs for military service. Newsweek tackles Moore’s fears in this article.

Tell your friends in swing states to get out and vote.
