News Headline: “Cheney’s tough talk on Iraq.”
We should listen here.
When former Vice President Dick Cheney talks about war, he doesn’t do it lightly.
He is aware of its many sacrifices.

Which could lead to burned cucumbers.

As long we see regular progress reports from Saigon.

Note to those who view statements from the Tea Party GOP with disbelief:
Next will come anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
