Cheney returns to Wyoming to "have fun"

V.P. Dick Cheney will abandon his official residence in D.C. on Jan. 20, 2009, right on time but way over budget.

Jared Miller reports from the Casper Star-Tribune capital bureau that Mr. and Mrs. Cheney will arrive in their home town of Casper on Inauguration Day.

Vice President Dick Cheney will waste no time getting back to Wyoming after he and President George Bush officially leave office next month. Cheney and wife Lynne are slated to fly to Casper immediately after the Jan. 20 inauguration ceremony for a reception that night at the home of family friends Mick and Susie McMurry, said state Treasurer Joe Meyer, a longtime friend of the Cheneys.

The private reception will offer a chance for the vice president to begin to "decompress" after eight years in office, Meyer said.

Close friends, including some members of the Cheneys' 1959 Natrona County High School graduating class, are expected to attend. "It will be low key," Meyer said. "It's just a chance to get out of that [Washington, D.C.] environment, come home. There are so many friends here, and let's have fun."


Rumor has it that many fun parlor games are planned. They include "Pin the Blame on the Other Guy;" "Let's Waterboard a Democrat;" a new version of "Risk" in which chickenhawks get to make the moves and teen-aged G.I.s from Rawlins and Lovell get to die; and a Republican version of Monopoly, in which bankrupting the U.S. Treasury is the goal. A fun time will be had by one and all.

The next day, Jan. 21, Cheney will be in Cheyenne addressing the Wyoming State Legislature. Later, he will be feted by the Long's Peak Council of the Boy Scouts, where he will receive a "distinguished citizen" award. Wow, the Boy Scouts sure have gone downhill since I was in it, even since my son was in a Long's Peak Council troop in Cheyenne. I wonder if Cheney will have the gall to recite the Scout Oath:

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.


It's difficult to determine which words Cheney will choke on. "On my honor," is my guess, since he has none. "Duty" is another one, since he apparently did his "duty" by invading foreign lands, quashing constitutional freedoms, and enriching himself with war boodle. "Law" could be another stumbling block.

If you have the stomach for it, you can pay $175 to attend the Boy Scout event at Little America in Cheyenne. "Contributors" will have to fork over up to $15,000 to attend.

"If you want to meet and greet and rub elbows with the Cheneys, it's going to be $15,000," said Long's Peak Council's Sheryl McBride, who should know better.


Who wouldn't want to rub up against those elbows. Cheney has rubbed elbows with some of the best: George W. Bush, Saddam Hussein, Donald Rumsfeld, Wall Street rip-off artists. That's a lot of greasy elbows.

After this gala, what will Dick and Lynne Cheney do next? According to the CST report, they will keep their mountain fortress in Jackson, but also are building a house in Maryland. Wonder how many houses that is? As many as McCain?

there have been persistent rumblings that the Cheneys' home in Teton Pines has been for sale.

odds seem to be that he eventually will retire to the Chesapeake coast, down the street from his neighbor in hell, Rumsfeld.

I hadn't heard those rumblings, so thanks for the update.

Who else will be moving into the Cheney-Rumsfeld neighborhood? Condi Rice? Wolfie? Alberto Gonzales? When they've moved in and are feeling safe and smug, we could surround them with barbed wire and give them the future they deserve.

I wrote Dick and Lynne last week and suggested that in his speech to the Wyoming legislature Wednesday that he speak-out about the danger of America turning the security apparatus on itself, with the example of Wyoming House bill HB0007 from 2006, paid for by the NRA, which would have let anyone in the state of Wyoming carry a concealed weapon- without a permit or review and without training. I compared the need for this speech to President Eisenhower's farewell in 1961 in which he warned about the Military Industrial Compex. I opposed that Wyoming gun bill in 2006 and ended up being harassed by one supporter of the bill (Jones of Park County and his gun buddies) and then harassed by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (which sent two thugs to my house to intimidate me from revealing that DCI's deputy director, Kevin Haller, had called me and hung up on me to harass me after asking if it was me. In my own living room, DCI agent Jason Moon told me I could not write my State Legislators "like that" and his boss, DCI State Operations COmmander said it was because "the first paragraph here is goofy!" THAT is the kind of amateur police state I think America can still become.
