perhaps it's just because i'm descended from a crude and simple folk, but am i the only one to get the impression that cheney's smirk conveys embarrassment and that the "cloud" hanging above him could be methane?
no wonder bush loves having him around. after all, who would be the "butt" of all dubya's — and time's — fart jokes?
he loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. a top insider let that slip when explaining why president bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. but he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. he's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.
they make quite a pair, dick and dubya. stinking up the white house — in every sense of the term.
