Ramblin' Dick Cheney Attends Flower Levitating Ceremony, Resembles Mickey Rooney

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!

Oh yeah, The Omani guy is wearing a traditional crecent shaped knife. It is part of everyday men's dresswear in Oman and Yemen; kind of like wearing a tie in the west.

The minister's knife is appropriately large enough to outweigh Dick's big red tie. It's a virility thing.

Notice how Dick is guarding his manly parts as the minister affectionately strokes his knife.

The finest of these knives have a hilt made of rinoceras horn(sad but true).

And that is your Middle-east lesson for today.

there is a certain scent of couples therapy in the air, like the moderator just left the scene, while they discuss the more intimate difficulties in their relationship...

I obviously watch too much of The Daily Show.

Looking at this picture, all I can hear is Jon Stewart doing his CheneyIsThePenguin voice saying, "You'll need the knife RAAAAH! I kill with my bare hands RAAAH!"

Dick is SERIOUSLY protecting the boyparts. Is this his way of realizing his mortality? Or is this a sign that the naughty bit trouble Condi exhibits is actually pandemic throughout the administration.

Yet another reason to skip the Friday afternoon "staff meeting", if you know what I mean.

It's so hard to find competent terrorists these days.

Dickie hits the media the most because he is the best straight-faced liar in that merry band.
