Elizabeth Cheney, the former
State Department official and daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, is not
going quietly into the night.
The mother of five children, Cheney has been involved in the State Department's Mideast policy. Talking to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee a few weeks ago, she said the "time for diplomacy" with Iran is "rapidly coming to an end."
"According to a Pentagon report this week, more than 1,000 nuclear missile components in the U.S. arsenal are lost and cannot be located. We can't even find our own weapons of mass destruction!" - Jay Leno

re. Mcsame's 300 million $ battery - Apparently McDickhead believes that the only thing keeping us from energy independence is the great lack of financial reward. The lucky (and clever) inventor who comes up with that battery and patents it will get 300 million bucks every week!

What Would The Media Coverage Be If This Was Michelle Obama?
Oct. 18, 1999 | PHOENIX -- GOP presidential candidate John McCain's wife Cindy took to the airwaves last week, recounting for Jane Pauley (on "Dateline") and Diane Sawyer (on "Good Morning America") the tale of her onetime addiction to Percocet and Vicodin, and the fact that she stole the drugs from her own nonprofit medical relief organization.
"Barack Obama's wife Michelle, have you noticed she's making the rounds now? You notice when you turn on the TV, she wasn't as visible before, but now she's everywhere. Yesterday on 'The View,' I don't know if you saw that, Barack Obama's wife Michelle did the fist-bump with all the co-hosts. She did that, yeah. And then she said that the fist-bump is the new high-five. That's what she said. Yeah, after hearing this, John McCain asked, 'What the hell is a high-five?'" --Conan O'Brien
