It's hard to tell whether Cheney is simply bored with the yappy little mongrel running on about how he would like to control the weather, or whether a briefing on the California wildfire disaster is simply not important enough to demonstrate... vice-presidential interest.
And here, all along, we thought that the reason Cheney continues to link Iraq with the 9/11 attacks was because he was pulling a Goebellian maneuver of simply repeating the same lie over and over. Now it appears he may have been asleep through the whole thing.
No matter. You suffer; Dick takes a nap.
