Thanks for including us in your process.

How often do you use other folks' ideas ... not really referencing this cartoon, more on the Sunday cartoon?

Oh, jeeez, you had to remind me! My wife did a lot of genealogy work the last two weeks and just found out I'm some distant distant distant cousin of Cheney's (!!). I hope I'm on the healthy side of that tree. Regardless, I'm going to go get drunk.

At first I thought the tree might be accurate but Annie Oakley would never have shot a man in the face (at least by accident!). There is no way they are related. The others I can believe.

Ha ha ha, JKR just announced in NYC that Dumbledore was gay (at the Carnegie Hall Q&A event) so you need to add an asterisk in your tree.

Maybe I'd find this cartoon a masterpiece if I despised Dick Cheney as much as you do,Jimbo.As it is however I find it as just another pen and ink over the top exaggeration and
personal attack on the vice president drawn by the chubby fingers of the Enquirer's most LIBERAL staff member.
Your bias stinks.As you've matured,Jimmy,you've become much more partisan.You NEVER present DEMOCRATS in the mean light you so routinely portray REPS in.When I cancel my scrip to the Enquirer you will be the reason.

maybe that's because there's never been a vice-president who has seemed as genuinely EVIL as cheney does. before him it was all just dinguses and dooduses.

at 10/26/07, 2:39 PM Blogger G-RANT said...

i meant doofuses.

at 10/26/07, 2:55 PM Blogger G-RANT said...

i mean they always go after the current administration. the only way to avoid ridicule is to not be in power.

at 10/28/07, 10:24 AM Blogger BarbaraP said...

I liked the general idea of the cartoon a lot but I'm embarassed to admit I don't quite "get it." Is the idea that Cheney is descended from the bad side of the family tree, i,e,, Adam/Cain instead of Stevie/Abel (had Abel lived)? How did Adam and Eve become a gay couple? - Confused in Amberley,

"Apparently we do have a common ancestor about eight or nine generations back," the vice president said.

Lynne Cheney had dropped the bombshell revelation two weeks ago, telling MSNBC television that she had made the surprise discover while researching her new book, a memoir of growing up in the western state of Wyoming.

Yeah, like Bush can count!

BAGHDAD - Violence is down 55 percent in Iraq since a U.S.-Iraqi security operation began this summer, U.S. officials said Sunday, even as at least 15 Iraqis were reported killed in bombings and shootings.
