    What's with the re-enactment photo? Why would Cheney agree to pose for that?

    This doesn't come close to Sharpton finding out from one of these genealogy reports that he's kin to Strom Thurmond.

    Eighth cousin?

    Figure that one out.

    I'm probably Osama Bin Laden's eighth cousin.

    Cheney does this with every new Senate member when they come to Washington, regardless of political affiliation. Not sure if it's with all the new House people or not. I actually watched this on C-span for like an hour a few y ears ago. I was sick with the flu, I think. But it was interesting watching the different people interact.

    "Author" Lynne Cheney. What a hoot.

    I recall Lynne Cheney's seminal A-to-Z effort (it really is a children's book in more ways than one) during a visit years ago to the kind of corporate shit bookstore created in the spirit of the Cheneys and this chickenshit administration.

    One's expectations of Lynne's new book, not to mention her sourcework, cannot be anything but low. This author and historian, after all, is a woman who has made a name out of savaging some of America's most vulnerable institutions -- from the NEH to public universities -- for cheaply scored political points.

    Her response to 9/11 was to whip up hatred for those awful dissenting pinko professors by sponsoring a collection of weakly wrought rhetorical bites purporting to show that higher education -- understand this now -- hates America because some teachers and students actually exercised the rights we are defending and did something other than sing hosannas to the scarecrow on a stick in the autumn fields otherwise known as "President" George W. Bush.

    It's been an ABC's kind of administration since Jan. 2001, I expect all of Lynne's books to follow the same. Maybe George knows the fourth letter by now.

    Obama's maternal great great father once owned Cheney's paternal great great great grandmother.

    No, you would have been smuggled out of the country w/o any questioning on Sept. 12, 2001.

    I agree with your post, but this has to be the longest sentence in SJ history, no?
