Vice Presidential rampage!
"He always seemed like such a nice guy," said a neighbor. "Quiet, you know. And pretty angry, I guess. I remember this one time, I was raking leaves, and a few of them blew off the top of my pile into his yard. Boy oh boy, did he let me have it. Only fair, though. I thought the 'irresponsible raking' thing was a joke at first, but after those Secret Service guys left, I completely agreed. You just don't do that. It's not neighborly."
Reached for comment in Baghdad, former Cheney friend Saddam Hussein joked, "When Dick shoots someone, it's an accident. But when I shoot someone, it's genocide. Tell me how that's fair." Added Hussein, "Really. Please, tell me. My defense team has completely run out of ideas."*
* - Disclaimer: Mr. Hussein is currently on trial for genocide, and may not have been joking.

The New York Times editorializes:
We can't think of a president who has gone to the American people more often than George W. Bush has to ask them to forget about things like democracy, judicial process and the balance of powers — and just trust him. We also can't think of a president who has deserved that trust less.I know the Times' editorial staff is not particularly fond of the Bush administration, and I know they've been writing editorials along these lines for years now, but this is harsher than their usual lot. I don't know what it was that set them off — the wiretapping, the force-feeding, the Foreign Affairs article — but whatever it was, they're pissed.
