Cheney on Limbaugh: ‘I love him.’

They do have a lot in common after all. They both love depraved "fraternity pranks", throwing toasters into public swimming pools, thinking "24" is like real life, sending other kids to wars, getting out of wars themselves.

And, of course, they’ll always have the Dominican Republic.

Rush (or as Cheney calls him in Santa Domingo "El Hefty") goes there to exploit third-world sex-workers while Cheney has, by his own admission, more pedestrian tastes. He goes to the Dominican to be stimulated when he attends re-enactments of the assassination of the Mirabel Sisters by Generalissimo Trujillo, Cheney’s boyhood crush.

Good times.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
