The Vice President who must not be named

Via Froomkin, via the NYT:

"After the bird had settled down, Mr. Bush cautiously stroked its white feathers, patted its head and invited a group of schoolchildren to the stage to do the same. Mr. Cheney, who has never been known as a lively campaigner, hung back in a corner of the stage and approached neither the turkey nor the children."

Mr. Cheney had a visible line of drool hanging from the side of his mouth, which strangely was still there after the handlers moved the turkey away. His lips moved and, disturbingly, he seemed to mouth the words, "Children. Yummy children."
