senates moves to defund cheney's 4th branch of government

AP has the story, but Wonkette has the funny on the insanity of it all:

Now the Democrats are one step closer to making good on their threat to stop funding the Vice President’s rogue, free-floating office of no fixed branch. A Senate approps panel refused to grant Cheney’s office the $4.8 million it takes to maintain the thousands of industrial cooling units that keep the Vice President’s radioactive exoskeleton from overheating, cooking his decrepit innards like a slab of roadkill in the desert sun. Should his body temperature rise above 90 degrees, all of Northwest DC would be incinerated in the resulting firestorm. Ye gods, let the man say he’s in whatever branch of government he wants, Durbin, can’t you see there are thousands of lives on the line???

He'll just use some of the billions he has diverted from the occupation of Iraq to fund his subversive branch of evil. This was very funny though...

From the AP story: Such a step, said Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., would set a terrible precedent in relations between the executive and legislative branches of government, which have historically let each other set their own budgets. "This is going to further erode any sort of working relationship back and forth," Brownback said. "This is a patently bad idea."

And there goes Brownback's Presidential campaign, whooosh! Down the toilet. Hooray hooray.

I'm seeing little lights at the end of a long, long tunnel. Are you?

tiny, tiny little pinpricks. i'm not sure if it's just random cells firing in my optic nerve, or if it's really, actually, truly, honestly, miniscule, too small to actually register, sparks of hope that there may indeed be light at the end of this long fucking tunnel.

These politcriminals are going down in history as the worst bunch to rule this country ever. Cheney is a sore loser bully. His side is losing the war, losing the respect of the American people, losing influence, and losing the few political friends that are left. So Cheney's predictably doing what all bullies do: Not giving up even when cornered.
