Cheney further embarrasses while at Auschwitz
This is what he wears to represent the US? Way to push the message of "we don't give a crap for anyone else in this world"....



WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Vice President Dick Cheney raised eyebrows on Friday for wearing an olive-drab parka, hiking boots and knit ski cap to represent the United States at a solemn ceremony remembering the liberation of Auschwitz.

Other leaders at the event in Poland on Thursday marking the 60th anniversary of the death camp's liberation, such as French President Jacques Chirac and Russian President Vladimir Putin, wore dark, formal overcoats and dress shoes or boots.

"The vice president, however, was dressed in the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower," Robin Givhan, The Washington Post's fashion writer, wrote in the newspaper's Friday editions.

2. Dressed to watch the Patriots play Philly.
As the War Profiteer-in-Chief would say, "who cares what you think, go f*** yourself".

13. John Carptenter's version of 'The Thing'
And, yes, I think I could believe that Cheney has been taken over by an evil alien bug.

If he wasn't one already.

7. As someone on a WP discussion phrased it
He looks like a 10-year-old whose being forced to go to the theater with his parents and his bratty little sister.

17. Godsdamned Shitstain...
no wait, I take that back, he isn't a shit stain, he is the only living example of a tapeworm/hookworm hybrid. Spineless bloodsucker who lives on shit, and feeds on the misery of others. We need to shit the sucker out and immolate him in lighter fluid, the bastard!

20. Tacky, tacky, tacky
For all the money they manage to pilfer, you'd think republicans would have more class.

But you can't buy good taste.

Sheesh.
