I Like Dick Cheney
Originally posted at http://jumpinginpools.blogspot.com/2009/01/i-like-dick-cheney.html I know that everyone has a lot of fun making fun of Dick Cheney. But maybe that just means he’s cool.

Impeachnuts Should Listen to Ordinary Americans
I call them the impeachnuts. They’re a small but zealous group of members of the congress who are obsessed with their hatred of President Bush and members of his administration.
