Weekend at Cheney's The current imbroglio with the late Strom Thurmon reminds me of that staple of comedy where the plot turns on the necessity of hiding a death, with the laughs coming with the attempts to pass the corpse off as a live body. The Republicans desperately need Thurmon's vote in the Senate to continue to strip more assets from the U. S. A., and appear to use a combination of ventriloquism and robotics to keep up the illusion of Strom vitality after they frog-march his corpse into the Senate each day.
