Finally Someone Does It!

Black Entertainment Television did a riff on BushCo, in which Dubya and Dick "Freeway" Cheney go to take down D.C. A "thug" who used to run with Dubya when he had a narcotics problem relates that "He would watch the movie New Jack City about 15, 20 times a day, and he would often look at the White House and say, I can make this just like the Carter Apartments." (The Gangsta crack production headquarters in the movie.) Word is the execs at BET took some major heat over airing this harmless fun.

True to the spoof, Cheney is taking the mobster's way out again, announcing two hours before the Libby verdict came back that he was suffering from Deep Vein Thrombosis in his left leg. Just as he has for about the last thirty years.

Get ready to hear this phrase uttered by Cheney's lawyer in a civil court: "Your honor, my client is suffering from a life-threatening condition which does not allow him to attend these proceedings." Chicken-hawk candy-ass stiff.
