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.”

Charming guy. You can read all about it here.

But then, we knew he was a compassionate and caring man already, didn't we? His love and respect for Americans knows no bounds.

I claim no connections with this man as a (fellow) water-bearer (concerned with the wellbeing of mankind my ample ass!!). Other than the fact that my former step-father was roommates with him for a while in college (and former step-father was an equal gem, to say the least ;p ). ::shudder::

Yeah. I grew up in WV. This is just one of the many put-downs you hear all the time.

You wouldn't think a Vice President would resort to that kind of thing.

Yay! More stupid moves by prominent Republicans! I love seeing stuff like this in the election year.

Hell, I have a friend that is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican that commented that he's voting Democratic this election because he is embarrassed by his party.

In case you haven't seen this yet:

proves Bush supporters as clueless as Bush himself.
