Dick and Lynne ensure that their daughter Mary is a public figure then get pissy when she's treated like one by the press. This time Dick got grumpy with Wolf Blitzer. Duck, Wolf, duck!

Poor little Dick. (LOL) He just freakin' doesn't get it!! If it's a boy, do you suppose Mary will name it "W"?
I'm chairman of the "Cheney Fuck Yourself" Club. Can't stand the man. Ambition and greed in a (poorly-fitted) suit. He needs to stick to hunting with weapons in a controlled-game area...I can think of a few more folks to send on his next hunting trip.
But honestly, his unborn grandchild is off-limits.
After the child is born, (s)he will have much to live down, given G'pa's hateful and beligerent tones the last six years.
But I have a hard time mustering up anger on this one. Family is pretty personal.
What makes this a story is the hypocrisy of getting all grumpy at Wolf Blitzer when what the subject was was Cheney's letting his daughter get attacked by all manner of RPEs he and his administration and party so actively court and support. Apparently asking why he has been silent in the face of horrendous attacks is worthy of Cheney's public smouldering rage but attacking his daughter is not.
When a child is born, then s/he ought to be on- or off-limits as far as Mary and her family chooses, as long as they're reasonably consistent about it, which is something they don't have a good record with with Mary. We shall see...
P.S. My wife and I were talking just last weekend about how we think that, for the rest of his sorry life, Cheney should be greeted everywhere he goes with throngs shouting, "Go Fuck Yourself!" I want a t-shirt for the occasion.
