    So...wait.... A couple of weeks ago everyone was making fun of WV...calling them stupid and hicks and so forth, because of how they voted. Now that's over, so...

    nope, I'm not gonna. I'm just not gonna.

    Wes, it's stupid. It's sheer stupidity. One week everyone in WV is a racist inbred hick and the next week you're mad that Cheney made the same joke you guys were making--and about himself and his family as well.

    Do you think it makes a difference if the person making the joke is the Vice President, rather than a bunch of anonymous people on a message board???

    It is not that big of a deal in the big picture of things, but it is something that probably should not be articulated by a VP....
