That's One Fat, Happy and Filthy Rich Vice President

My goodness our Vice-President is getting fat off those Halliburton contracts.

He's got over 433,000 stock options! A year ago, they were worth $241,498 and now they are valued at $8,165,489.07. That's a 3281% return in one year. I hope all the families that lost loved ones in Iraq and the wounded servicemen and women are proud that they sacrificed so much so Dick can roll with reckless abandon in his slimy green clover.

That's certainly a lot of holdings coming from someone who, two years ago said "Since I left Halliburton to become George Bush's vice president, I've severed all my ties with the company, gotten rid of all my financial interests. I have no financial interest in Halliburton of any kind and haven't had now for over three years."

Not only is he a thief, but he's a liar too. Only not a very good one, as one glance at Cheney's financial holdings shows he's lying through his teeth.

According to Attywood, Cheney and Bush aren't as tight at they used to be. You'd think if Cheney was making that kind of scratch he'd be more than willing to keep on fixing Georgie's mistakes.

But Cheney needs to remember that he can't take it with him when his ticker gives out. Wouldn't it be ironic if his lesbian daughter inherited the bulk of his billions and donated it all to progressive causes.
