Holiday Cheer

My party last night was lots of fun (I am told) and a smashing success--lots of people, and few leftovers. I was too busy hostessing to take photos, so I am waiting for friends (Loraine and Wes) to e-mail me some.

While we were having a grand old time in Union Lake, the prince of darkness scuttled away from his secure location to bring some holiday cheer visit with our troops in Iraq. During a "roundtable discussion", he was told that the guys weren't seeing much progress on the ground, so he assured them that things were going swimmingly, and to not believe what they see on the TV. Whatever. He later gave a speech to the troops:
Shouts of "hooah!" from the audience interrupted Cheney a few times, but mostly the service members listened intently. When he delivered the applause line, "We're in this fight to win. These colors don't run," the only sound was a lone whistle.
The troops didn't seem encouraged by the VP's brave words; they may have been thinking back the Cheney's own brilliant military record.

Meanwhile, in Washington, the GOP continues to play Scrooge, filling the stockings of the richest 1% at the expense of the neediest members of our society.
