Re Cheney, it's official: 35% of telephone survey respondents are flesh-eating zombies. That's the only possible explanation. OK, I'm exaggerating. They're well-meaning members of an extraterrestrial race that don't understand the human aversion to mass slaughter.

Generally, VP's are so invisible that it's hard to know if any of them were as murderously arrogant as Cheney. But if we're judging them by their fruits, Cheney's the pits. He represents everything that's horribly wrong with the US (or us, perhaps).
