Cheney Roasted at Gridiron Club
Posted on Mar 12, 2006
The elite of the nation’s political reporters gather at the 121-year-old club to poke fun at administration figures. Bush headlines the event, which focuses on Cheney’s hunting accident.
Call us crazy, but we’ve always felt uneasy about the press yukking it up with their sources like this. It’s hard to be a watchdog when you’re cozying up with the people you’re supposed to be watching.
WASHINGTON - President Bush headlined the annual Gridiron Club political press roast Saturday night, but Vice President Dick Cheney was the main target of the humor.
Cheney’s well-publicized Texas hunting accident last month drew ridicule from the press corps and all the speakers, including the president.
Bush pointed out that the vice president’s full name is Richard B. Cheney.
