Hey, military industrial complex? Is that Dick Cheney in your pocket or are you just glad to see us?

· 2004 Election

Somebody. Anybody. Please. Hug me.
(1) That headline is a random thing. Apropos of nothing. Except the truth.
(2) More on point, the next time we Dems feel mistreated by the unflattering, doofy pictures the media sometimes shows of our favorite candidates, take a moment and remember this, won’t you?
The three pictures above are (l to r) from the current home pages of ABC News, Fox News, and MSNBC, respectively. That’s right — on his big night at the RNC, even Fox News couldn’t make Cheney look like someone you’d want to have watch your pets while you were out of town.
(disclaimer: some minor doctoring on the MSNBC shot to get rid of some text that was over the flag. The man’s globular head, pained expression, and apparent lack of upper teeth come to you 100% guaranteed unretouched.)
