US Vice President Dick Cheney, left, meets with Omani Minister for Foreign Affairs Yousif bin Alawi Abdullah, at Muscat's Royal Airport, Tuesday Feb. 27, 2007. Earlier, a suicide bomber attacked the entrance to the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan during a visit by Cheney, killing up to 23 people and wounding 20. Cheney was unhurt in the attack, which was claimed by the Taliban and was the closest that militants have come to a top U.S. official visiting Afghanistan. (AP Photo/Hamid AlQasmi)
Did the Vice President even notice that he escaped an assassination attempt today? He doesn't seem particularly traumatized here other than that whole deal where he looks like he aged fifteen years in one week. I'm relieved that the unpleasantness didn't interfere with this superb photo-op.
And that got me thinking that it's so exciting, really, for Cheney to be such a media-whore these days. He's everywhere! Remember how invisible he was for, like, three years after 9-11? But, gosh, lately he's been globe-hopping, on TV, talked about in some trial that's going on and... well, just everything is coming up Dick! I love it! Please click the "dirty pictures of Dick Cheney" tag below to relive some of my most intimate and revealing fantasies (not really safe for work) involving this suddenly showboating superstar.
Also, duh, how cool is that Omani minister? Is he really carrying a sword? Or a scroll? Whatever it is, I'm sure it's spicy. I've got to say that after viewing literally hundreds (maybe thousands by now) of photo-ops like this, I'm impressed by this sublime couch setup, and dreamy Yousif is easily one of the most dashing photo-op jockeys ever. Well done! Wouldn't you love to see him hit the matching armchairs scene with Condi? Oh, behave!
