I had planned on just posting this on my own web log today but, alas, blogger.com is full of error codes & publishing is not possible at this time.
Probably part of the grand nefarious Cheney machinations, to keep people from making fun of the Cheneys on April 1.
But, since it was BC's Eric Olsen who brought this event to my attention, I thought it was only apropo to share, so...
[ YOU DON'T LIKE DICK AS I LIKE DICK... A Letter ]
An email from a reader on April 1's "Make Fun of the Cheneys Day"...
I understand to protest their harassment of the White House parody site; April first is "Make Fun of the Cheneys Day".
Pain me as it might, I read the whitehouse.org site - or, as much as I could humanly stomach - just so's I'd know what the heck all the hullabaloo was about. Now I know and, let me tell you something, buster, I'm none too pleased! Did you know it contains what are probably doctored photos of the Honorable Second Lady Lynne Cheney? And a fictitious biographical statement?
Is this what passes for humor in this fine land today? What's wrong with the comedic styling of Mark Russell? Or living legend Buddy Hackett? Now those are comedians! Not the mean-spirited "white house dot org" people who, quite frankly, just aren't funny! Well, I sure wasn't laughing and, I'd imagine, nor are any Americans worth their salt.
So, this fellow named Neal Pollack (www.nealpollack.com) called for a day of fun making, did he? Who is this Neal Pollack anyway, you might ask? He fancies himself a writer but, mostly, he makes stuff up. Real writers don't have to make stuff up. That's why they are called writers! So, really, he's just another sniveling no-goodnik trying to make a name for himself on the back of one U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney.
Some people obviously spend way too much time thinking, instead of doing, for themselves.
Get off Dick, Neal! You dumb pollack.
Dick Cheney is a good man with a good heart.
Well, he's a good man at least. His heart? Not so good. But that's o.k., because the honorable President George W. Bush has enough heart for the both of them. He is, after all, a "compassionate conservative." I think his record so far speaks to that fact.
