HE'S OUR DICK
Dick Cheney apparently doesn't know how to dress like an adult, and it's offended quite a few national leaders, and probably more folks by this time tomorrow.
Cheney attended the somber Auschwitz memorial ceremonies today wearing a fur-trimmed parka with his name on it and the legend "Staff 2001." European leaders, most of whom come from countries where you need a coat and tie to go to a restaurant (how many Outback Steakhouses are in Europe?), were appalled.
Cheney might have a medical explanation. After all, his entire vice-presidency has been overshadowed by his heart health. Most people would have bet on Johnny Carson to outlive Cheney. Heck, in 2000 they would have bet on Strom Thurmond to outlive Cheney.
The criticism is that, even though we know he has a nice dark overcoat (last worn in public on January 20 for the inauguration), he chose to wear ski-jet attire to a ceremony reminding the world of an evil greater than the one currently confronting us. Maybe it's part of the current Administration's effort to make Saddam Hussein look Truly Evil, instead of one of dozens of international dirtbags (all of whom should be out of power).
I hope he at least showered.
