Mysterious and spooky,
They’re altogether ooky,
The Cheney Family.
As it turns out, even the lighter side of Dick Cheney can prompt major disapproval. As Sheryl Stolberg reported this morning, the vice president elicited a wave of laughter from the National Press Club on Monday by cracking a joke about his extended family, which includes a tie to Senator Barack Obama:
“So we had Cheneys on both sides of the family — and we don’t even live in West Virginia,” the vice president deadpanned […] “You can say these things when you’re not running for re-election.”
Well, kids. Your intrepid reporter (that would be me) has scoured the records and uncovered an old Cheney family portrait. Now, I’m no expert, but it doesn’t look like West Virginia to me!
