Baltimore Sun: Vice President Dick Cheney a confirmed Apple iPod user

“It’s been a quarter-century since the Cheney family, dog included, piled into an RV and traveled around Wyoming, going from rodeo to small-town parade in that summer of 1978 to urge voters to elect Dick Cheney to the U.S. House of Representatives,” Susan Baer reports for The Baltimore Sun.

“Today, the family is out in full force again, with the vice president’s two grown daughters putting aside their careers to devote themselves to their father’s political success – Elizabeth Cheney, 37, traveling the country giving speeches for the Bush-Cheney re-election team; Mary Cheney, 35, overseeing her father’s vice presidential run,” Baer reports. “With political instincts honed over three decades of watching their father navigate the currents of power, the two women have emerged as two of his closest advisers and confidantes, trusted allies fiercely devoted to him and the Bush agenda.”

Baer reports, “Vice President Cheney has evolved over the past three years into a sort of dark, mysterious figure, his retreats to ‘undisclosed locations’ a metaphor for the nearly invisible yet powerful role he’s played. His family life, too, has been kept largely under wraps, though in some ways it is remarkably ordinary, right down to the iPod the vice president received from his children for Christmas.”

  1. If I was younger, I think I would have cared.
    WHO GIVES A SHIT if he uses ipod or not.
    Politicians of this current “government” shouldn’t be mentioned in this forum.

  2. Right on Dick Cheney!

    Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years! Four more years!

  3. Is there any way we can send a firmware update to it, so it explodes and takes off his head?

  4. It is strange that the same liberal-types that preach tolerance seem to always take to personal attacks against anyone who is conservative. Actions speak louder than words. It’s not what you say you are, but how you conduct your life that measures your values and beliefs. Although I do not see eye-to-eye with the VP on many things, he is a decent and honorable man. I wonder if he uses a PB, I know GWB uses one.

  5. Enlightened One

    Show some respect you said? If you still believe in liars that’s your problem. I don’t have respect for those who have no respect for their people and lie to them in a regular basis.

    Don’t drag me into a political debate. I don’t think you’re fit to defend something despicable

    With all my respect to those who deserve it.

    Peace

  6. The attitudes of Boeing777 and Dave H are one of the main reasons Republicans control all branches of the U.S. federal government and a majority of state governorships and legislatures. Your hateful intolerance discredit your ideas–if you didn’t exist, Republicans would try to invent you. All self-respecting liberals should disassociate themselves from you and your ilk.

  7. Boeing,

    I don’t know how you can say with such confidence that Cheney is a liar. How do you know? You are insulting this person and I don’t see any proof to back it up. We know nothing about you yet you viscously and personally attack the number 2 person in the US government. Please show some respect.
