    My invitation read "hats required" so no, this is not a politically incorrect wardrobe malfunction.

    See this is what happens when you get even richer off the backs of most Americans through the oil business.....You get to wear a cowboy hat instead of a sailor cap.

    Cowboy hats went out in the 80's. That's why Dick Cheney still wears one.

    Now that Vice President Cheney is setting his sights on employment after the White House.... He's concidering work on the next Sex In The City movie as the style consultant. Just look at what he can do with one suite and a Hat.... Ohhhh the many moods of Cheney !

    Cheney replaces Roosevelt's Big Stick Diplomacy with Bush's Big Hat Diplomacy, where pretend your a cowboy by wearing a big cowboy hat, and you can act like one around the world.

    There's something wrong with the microphone Mr Cheney, did you say Halitosis or Haliburton???

    May 27, 2008 at 6:42 pm |
  41. Sue, Billerica, MA

    Roosevelt mya have conducted an aggressive foreign policy using Big Stick Diplomacy but Cheney conducts a Big Hat Diplomacy where if my hat is bigger than yours, I can make up and do whatever I want!

  42. Sue, Billerica, MA

    Dick Cheney, a man who never went to war, yet started a war.
    Dick Cheney, a man who never was a cowboy, yet started a cowboy hat wearing fad.
    The man is an enigma!

    Wondering why they were all looking at him funny, Cheney sincerely hoped there wasn't something stuck in his teeth.

    Cheney shows he's fashion forward by having bright feathers accent his cowboy hat. Quail feathers are so 2 years ago.
