Act I, The Dark Lord talks out of the side of his mouth:
During a question-and-answer session with about 200 supporters at a Des Moines hotel, the vice president said that it was imperative that the nation made the "right choice" in November, adding that decisions made by the next administration would affect the next 30 or 40 years.Act II, the young master faces the fiefdom's scribes:
"If we make the wrong choice, then the danger is we'll get hit again and we'll be hit in a way that'll be devastating from the standpoint of the United States, and we'll fall back into the pre-9/11 mind set that these terrorist attacks are criminal attacks and we're not really at war," the vice president said.
"I think that would be a terrible mistake for us," Cheney told the supporters.
Bush refused to answer questions from reporters. He simply stared at a reporter who asked if he agreed with Vice President Dick Cheney's assertion that if Democrat John Kerry is elected, "the danger is that we'll get hit again" by terrorists.Close: The multitudes gasp -- and then snicker.
Anyone know how to find an Air Guard unit in Boston?
