Spier: Insiders Say Cheney Was Warming Up To Execute Hussein

The spin started after everyone’s story was organized into one neat statement: The victim was in the wrong place and his condition was stable.

The White House reported that Justice Antonin Scalia was not present.

D.H.: Is that because Nino is not into Texas quail? Louisiana ducks with Dick at his side, yes, we know. Is that an originalist distinction?

WDS: Scalia, who is known to hunt in a Tyrolian hat with a tail feather belonging to the last recorded living bird from Sicily, was overhead saying: "There by the grace of god ...."
