"...I think Dick Cheney is a criminal in virtually everything he's touched or had involvement in, whether it's the war or economy or civil liberties."
I agree. If only there were some way to confront him. Nothing big, just...you know...some way.
Some 200 people gathered in a Wilson field Saturday afternoon for a "Peace Rally" to protest the Iraq war and send a message to Vice President Dick Cheney, who owns a home just up the road.Yes! Yes! And--okay, this is just a thought--what if a...Republican were to come forward! Yeah, that's the ticket!
"We organized it because of the war in Iraq and what an injustice it has been," Walt Farmer, retired Air Force captain and registered Republican said. "The Vice President has received a pass in Jackson long enough. We want to let them know we don't approve of the war or how they play fast and loose with the Constitution."Okay, now I know I'm pushing my luck, but if even just one Democratic state official attended, then it would be a genuine bipartisan effort!
Attending a rally first with speakers, including State Rep. Pete Jorgensen (D-Jackson), author Alexandra Fuller and musicians, the group then took to the county bike path where they marched 1.5 miles north to the entrance of the exclusive Teton Pines Country Club, where Cheney lives when he is in Wyoming.This is just too eerie. My entire fantasy is coming true! Okay, okay, since we're on a roll, get this: What if there was some visual...some...artistic rendition that would symbolize Darth himself? Nah. That's asking too much.
A 10-foot tall effigy of Cheney, with a fishing pole in one hand and a spouting oil well in the other, was brought on the route. Rally-goers toppled the statute as a symbolic gesture of their disapproval of the vice president.Woo hoo! Thank you, Wilson, Wyoming! You guys rock!
