Dick Cheney Is Mocking You, America

Dick Cheney Is Mocking You, America
Larry King: "But the public might say, what have you got to hide? And that would be logical, what have you got to hide?"

THE VICE PRESIDENT: First of all, there's no charge. What's the allegation of the wrongdoing here? Frankly, there isn't anything. With respect to the U.S. attorneys, there's been, I think, a bit of a witch hunt on Capitol Hill, as they keep rolling over rocks hoping they can find something. But there really hasn't been anything come up that would suggest there was any wrongdoing of any kind. And in the meantime, the President feels strongly, and I do too -- I agree with him -- that it's important for us to pass on these offices we occupy to our successors in as good a shape as we found them. And that means protecting and preserving the integrity of those processes.

Unbelievable


Minneapolis 35W bridge collapses during rush hour
A busy highway bridge that spans the Mississippi River just northeast of Minneapolis collapsed during rush hour Wednesday, sending a school bus, other vehicles and tons of concrete crashing into the water.

The entire span of the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed about 6:05 p.m. A tractor-trailer caught fire, and flame and black smoke billowed into the sky.

Local media reported 20 to 30 injuries but initially no deaths. NBC News reported that every Minneapolis ambulance had been requested to the scene.

CNN.com & MSNBC.com are streaming live video.
This is crazy, and I am horrified.

Here's a picture of the bridge taken last year.
