(Toledo, OH) I am not a card-carrying member of the GOP (nor any other party, for that matter), and I am not trying to take a cheap shot at Vice President Dick Cheney.
Rather, I am curious how may pictures it took Larry Downing of Reuters to get this shot.
The Vice President was speaking to the US Labor Department's 2006 National Summit on Retirement Savings. I can just see the glint in Downing's eyes as he got the bright idea to snap the word "retire" right above Cheney's head.
I laughed when I first saw this, but then I felt a momentary twinge of empathy for Mr. Cheney, who has had to endure quite a bit of negative attention in the past few weeks.
Just a twinge.
