Holy shit! There have been rumors that Cheney wasn't on board with the whole FMA thing, but I never expected him to bring up the subject this close to the convention. I sure the hell hope this isn't part of a "Cheney falls on his sword" vice-president slot swapout. I was generally in favor of such a maneuver, but this would be a pretty damned shabby way to go about it. I can't think of a thing more likely to leave me sympathetic to grouchy, evil-tempered, cantankerous old Dick, or an act more designed to sabotage him with the "base" he was allegedly keeping in the fold.
Via Roger L. Simon. Go buy one of his books. Director's Cut was good.
