Cheney Heckled by Anti-War Protesters. Tee-hee.
Vice President Dick Cheney was heckled by protesters Tuesday as he spoke at the groundbreaking for a public policy center honoring former Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker.
During Cheney’s brief remarks, about a half-dozen people protesting the war in Iraq yelled, “War, what is it good for?” and held up a large banner saying, “Peace Now.”
Cheney continued speaking and didn’t acknowledge the protesters, who were escorted from the ceremony inside the University of Tennessee’s basketball arena.
About 50 protesters, most of them appearing to be college age, demonstrated outside the arena. Several carried signs, including one that read “Honor Baker, Impeach Cheney.”
