Cheney to visit Michigan next week; Democrats are delighted.

POLITICALLY SPEAKING

Cheney is coming; so is the criticism


Vice President Dick Cheney will be in Michigan next week as the guest of honor at a private fund-raiser for U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Tipton.

Republican supporters will pay $500 to attend the private house party in Marshall, or $1,000 for a personal photo op with Cheney.

Democrats also are pleased: They get to spend the next nine days working out on the Cheney punching bag. State Sen. Mark Schauer, D-Battle Creek, Walberg's likely opponent, got things rolling Tuesday with a mock e-mail message from the vice president to Walberg's backers.

It contained a series of anti-Cheney missives about secret energy meetings, payoffs from Halliburton, undisclosed locations, and was signed "The REAL Commander-in-Chief." Doesn't anyone have anything new to say about Cheney? How about a shotgun joke?

Staff writers Kathleen Gray, Chris Christoff and Dawson Bell contributed to this week's Politically Speaking.

1. Maybe we could arrange a hunting trip for Cheney and Leon Drolet.

2. Nice,
Somebody had to say it!

Hopefully we can get enough full ticket Dems to win Michigan for all the Blues out there.
