Tempting though it may be to mock The Symbol Of All That Is Evil for his appearance today throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Nationals home opener (thanks to Rog for the link), I will try to focus on the positive :

a) Cheney looks every bit as capable on the mound as Ramon Ortiz.

b) the Nats warmup jacket should come in handy the next time Dick has to attend a world leader’s funeral.

c) we’re in the 7th inning, the Mets are up 5-0, and despite the presence of snipers and the Veep, no one has been shot. I’d like to think neither you or I would confuse Jose Reyes with a duck…but after 8 or 9 cans of Coors Light, who knows?
