A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Wednesday, April 09, 2003 They need something to keep them busy: Democrats Henry "See No Clinton Administration Evil" Waxman and John Dingell are asking the General Accounting Office to see if Vice President Cheney has been helping Halliburton and its subsidiaries get defense contracts.
They are asking for your tax dollars to be spent on an investigation despite the fact that: There have been no credible allegations of wrongdoing; Cheney has no say in who is awarded defense contracts; Cheney cut all financial ties with the company before taking office (therefore he doesn't gain anything when Halliburton is awarded a contract).
Hopefully the GAO will decline to waste money on this farce, but don't count on it.
