Criminals victims include their loved ones: The VP's Wife give a tour...
We are all so angry at the Vice President for the horrible things he treats as "no-brainers" but we should never forget that his wife and other family members don't probably feel that way. She probably doesn't know or doesn't want to know that her husband allows those sorts of things to happen.

We need to remember that their are always two victims in crime: the victim wronged by the criminal, and the criminal's family. I feel sorry for her.

Now she is a little uppity rich woman, if you listen to her talk she reminds you of the typical rich lady. (I know this having a couple family members who talk/act the same exact way.) But hey, that isn't any reason to "hate" or dislike someone.

Anyway, just to help us remember that these people are still humans, here is a page from the White House. The First Lady and the Second Lady (I guess that's what you call her??) give tours of parts of the White House and the VP's House on the Naval Observatory.

You can also watch Bush/Cheney/Rove give their tours, as well as Scott McClellan and Andy Card (you know obviously before they left the White House.)

1. I'm sorry, can't do it.
She's a nasty, snotty "person". See, I was nice.

3. She is indeed a nasty snotty person...
but I like their dogs. They have two labs, one black and one tan. They have dog wars. I am a sucker for dogs. (Though I have to say, I don't think I like Barney too much, I don't know why I just can't like Scotties. (Hey maybe that explains my disdain for Scott McClellan.))

Think about the three grandchildren they have, whom Mrs. Cheney talks about in the video. They like to play with the dogs in the big open areas of the VP's house.

These people are human beings just like us, all we have to do is show them compassion and get them to reconnect with that common humanity. We have to remember we are human beings as well; we should be human to them.

You possess a kind and forgiving soul. Too bad these people you mention don't. They don't care about you and no matter how much you try to appeal to their humanity, they never will because they traded their humanity for money and power ages ago.

I feel for the pets and the children. Throughout history some of the biggest monsters had loved ones they cared about. Then again, how is behaving like a monster to the masses supposed to help loved ones? Hell, even Hitler loved his dog. That didn't stop him from poisoning the poor beast at the end.

2. Sheahright
The Second Lady runs an organization that terrorizes college professors who say anything bad about her cowardly, murdering husband. She's on TV with sickening frequency defending Deadeye Dick and all of his evil doings. It will be a great day for America when the Ugliest Second Couple in History are not being paid with my tax dollars any more.
