Talk about not knowing when to retire! I wish him well, but it might be time for him to let someone else have a chance. He makes the case for term limits.

Have to admit I admire his stamina.

He got upset with Cheney's remark


WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President Dick Cheney threw a verbal insult at West Virginians on Monday, but quickly apologized.

Talking about his family roots and how he's distantly related to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, the vice president noted that he had Cheneys on both sides of his family.

"And we don't even live in West Virginia," Cheney quipped.

Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., blasted Cheney, saying that for a vice president to openly display "such contempt and astounding ignorance toward his own countrymen" was an insult to all Americans.

"Now that he or the administration he represents no longer needs their vote, Mr. Cheney apparently feels that he is now free to mock and belittle the people of West Virginia," Byrd said.

Don't want to tempt fate by including McCainIt's old Irish ,Word of death always comes in threes !I included Mc Cain because he has been sick or at least he was in to a hospital recently and I agree his death now would be a catastrophe . Lautenberg will live forever on the take !And that old liberal fosilized bird exhibits all of his liberal knee jerk roots by going after Chaney over a inocent remark about Obama.The Grand Floogal should be in a nursing home someplace quiet so he has time to make his peace with his maker.

The bad ones always do. Sigh.

Had 3 good aunts, 1 not so good one. You can guess which one lasted forever and ever.

Had heard that bad things happen in 3's. Guess death is at the top of the "bad thing" list.

I heard that quip last night and I thought it was pretty funny. What's not funny is all this fake outrage on "behalf" of people who probably know 27 good incest jokes for every occasion. :rolleyes:

Yeah, really! Doesn't Cheney know that only Democrats can insult Americans and get away with it? Why, it makes me want to cling to my guns and church,... uh, synagogue.
