ABC News brings us the wit and wisdom of Dick Cheney:
“It’s not only wildfires that shift with the wind,” Cheney told supporters Friday.
“As westerners, the president and I understand the challenges that we face here in Nevada, especially when it comes to protecting residents from wildfires,” Cheney said here during his first post-convention campaign swing.
But Cheney said Kerry has a different view. “He says he’s in touch with the West,” the Republican said with a smile before delivering the punch line. “He must mean western Massachusetts.”
And, whilst you’re at ABC News, twist yourself into a strange shape trying to find a position you could defend down the pub on the bizarre, but lucrative careers of the Giraffe Women of Thailand.
“he must mean Western Massachusetts”
That’s funny in a way not intended by either you or Cheney. I live in Western Massachusetts and it’s often said here that the politicians out east in Boston (including but not limited to Kerry) often forget that the western part of the state exists. We are to Boston what Wales is to London, you might say. If Cheney tells that joke here in Western Massachusetts, he might want to say this:
“He says he’s in touch with the West. He must mean Cambridge.”
