Dick Cheney Apologized Yesterday For Telling This Joke:
"The vice president's offhand comment was not meant to hurt anyone," Cheney spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride said later Monday. "On reflection, he concluded that it was an inappropriate attempt at humor that he should not have made. The vice president apologizes to the people of West Virginia for the inappropriate remark."
In a question-and-answer session after giving a speech at the National Press Club, Cheney said also joked that he wouldn't object to a family reunion with Obama, but said he didn't think the candidate would be up for one — "at least not before November."
"He'd probably be fearful I might whisper in his ear and change his whole view of the Middle East," Cheney said.
He said that when his wife, Lynne, was doing research on a book, she discovered that his grandmother was descended from a man named Richard Cheney. "So I had Cheneys on both sides of the family," he said.
To be offended by this joke you have to truly be on a mission to be offended. His entire speech was full of quips and jokes and Cheney seemed to be having fun. Fun isn't permitted in Washington D.C..
