She got a Pulitzer for this?: Maureen Dowd's column in today's New York Times has me despairing of ever winning a Pulitzer Prize.
[I] always enjoy hearing about how a teenage Dick Cheney stood off to the side with buckets of water to put out Lynne's flaming batons.
But there was an even better moment during Claire Shipman's two-part "Good Morning America" interview at the Wyoming ranch this week. Trying to humanize Dr. No, ABC was let into the inner sanctum to watch Mr. Cheney take his 4-year-old granddaughter on her first solo horsie ride and hear how he's teaching his granddaughters fly-fishing.
Ms. Shipman asked the vice president "his greatest guilty pleasure."
His wife quickly interjected that it was fishing. But we all know, of course, it's global domination.
Isn't she witty? Seriously, how many lead paint chips must one consume to come up with tripe like this?
