What an incurable case of myopia. On Meet the Press this morning, Dick Cheney’s official biographer had the nerve to rap Jay Leno for still making jokes about the vice president’s 2006 hunting accident. Stephen Hayes of the right-wing Weekly Standard revealed that Cheney was watching The Tonight Show host’s monologue this past Valentine’s Day and lamented “It never ends. It never goes away…” when Leno made fun of that two-year-old shotgun incident. Well, Earth to Cheney, but Leno is still cutting up former president Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair and that came to light a full nine years ago. So, Mr. VP, you want some cheese with that whine? Hayes is the same conservative tool whom Cheney used to peddle his myths about the connection between Iraq and 9/11. The shill’s official bio of the Veep (more like official apologist for Tricky Dick) is being published on July 24th by — you guessed it — Rupert Murdoch’s HarperCollins.
