He glows red

From Spitting Image, a great photograph entitled, I think, Little Lord Fauntelroy meets Beelzebub. Speaking of the Devil, his Halliburton stock options have been calculated to have gone up in value a mere 3,281 percent in the last year. I've written about this:

"The Cheney-Halliburton connection has to be the largest and most blatant example of corruption in modern American history. Cheney is the effective President of the United States, and is clearly behind the awarding of massive contracts to a corporation that continues to pay him. If this were happening in Nigeria we'd sneer at the corruption, but in the American context it is beyond belief. Spiro Agnew had to resign over allegations that he received payoffs from engineers seeking contracts when he was Baltimore county executive and governor of Maryland. Spiro had nothing on Dick. The amounts of money Spiro stole would be chump change for Cheney. The best part of all this is that Cheney is going to get away with it.
