Cheney's Dog Darth Vader for Halloween ... (Cheney in a wicked response)
ABC News ^ | October 31, 2007

Posted on 11/01/2007 4:06:21 AM PDT by IrishMike

ABC News' Jennifer Duck Reports: The Vice President's dogs may beat the President's dogs in the best dressed category this Halloween.

Late night TV shows have ridiculed and compared Vice President Dick Cheney to Darth Vader.

So in a wicked response, Cheney dressed one of his dogs, Jackson, as the famous Star Wars character. Cheney's other Labrador retriever, Dave, is dressed up as superman.

The canine costume may also be a jab at Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.

In September after the Democratic-led Congress failed to persuade congressional Republicans to force the President to change course in Iraq through legislative means, Clinton told supporters at a New York fundraiser, "You can always tell when the Republicans are restless -- because the Vice President's motorcade pulls into the Capitol. Darth Vader emerges. And honestly I'm not invited to their meetings I don't know what he says or does."

President Bush's pets also disguised themselves for Halloween.

Quite catty and looking a little spooked, India the cat wasn't too thrilled posing in her wizardous get-up. However, Barney and Miss Beazley, the President and Mrs. Bush's two Scottish Terriers, were happy to sit pretty as a cowboy and a strawberry.

White House employees brought their children trick-or-treating in the Old Executive Office Building, and the White House is allowing parents to go home a little early to spend the boo-tiful night trick-or-treating with their kids.

Earlier in the day, White House press secretary Dana Perino attempted to "spook" an otherwise unfazed White House press corps by posting her daily briefing slide in orange lettering.

I wonder whether he made that Darth Vader helmet out of a captured Iraqi Fedayeen Saddam helmet. LOL! Qusay Hussein apparently loved the menacing style and had such helmets issued for his troops shortly before Operation Iraqi Freedom.

{GASP!} Is the White House discriminating against FREERIDERS??

“I’m not invited to their meetings”

Here’s hoping you’ll never be invited to presidential and vice-presidential meetings ever again, and that you’ll never hold such meetings. Communist.

Yes! That’s been the stark difference in the GOP and Dem presidential candidates as well. At the Republican debate, almost all our guys displayed a sense of good humor that is so attractive in smart men, while at the Dem debates, there is anger, desperation, and a general sense of unhappy “ick”. I’d rather have ANY of our guys running the country (except the libertarian running as a pubbie) over ANY of the Dems, any day.

I guess I just have a soft spot for a good sense of humor.
