The former Vice President to George W. Bush announced today that he would like to be a woman, causing nearly 90 people choke on coffee at breakfast time morning.
Known for being a rugged individual and hated by the left, it would have been the year's biggest surprise in many earlier years but these things happen daily it seems.
Why? That's the big question!
"Well, if my daughter can become a man, why can't I become a woman", he told ABC News. "Woman have better traits than men. We argue and butt heads like an old billy goat and would like to kill those idiots....never mind."
Cheney said that watching the silly show in Washington DC lately has almost got him another heart attack.
"90% are now nuts. Back when W and I were there, the nut jobs were 50/50."
"OK! OK! Since I may become a woman I'll give you my biggest reason: Woman live eight or nine years more than men and I'm getting up there. I don't think I can survive another dozen heart attacks."
"So you really do want to be a woman, Mr. Cheney?"
"That's what I said, didn't I? And that's Dolly not Dick."
