A Bouquet of Cactus for Cheney 

That the Emperor has no clothes we have long known. Proof that the Vice-Emperor is similarly sky-clad, and equally undesirous of having this brought to His attention, is noted below. Kudos to alert reader raison de fem who is on the scene of this developing story. Over to you, raison: (via ABQJournal)
Some would-be spectators hoping to attend Vice President Dick Cheney's rally in Rio Rancho this weekend walked out of a Republican campaign office miffed and ticketless Thursday after getting this news:
Unless you sign an endorsement for President George W. Bush, you're not getting any passes.
The Albuquerque Bush-Cheney Victory office in charge of doling out the tickets to Saturday's event was requiring the endorsement forms from people it could not verify as supporters.
Minor BS about an alleged "Democrat operative group" omitted as it is BS.
Yier Shi, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee...said campaign workers got such verification by checking to see whether, among other things, someone has contributed money or volunteered for the campaign.

An endorsement form provided to the Journal by Random says: "I, (full name) ... do herby (sic) endorse George W. Bush for reelection of the United States."
I swear to God that is exactly as the Albuquerque paper had it. Any similarity to the swearing-in process used by the dastardly Hedley LaMar in the movie "Blazing Saddles" is entirely in the mind of the reader. To continue:
The John Kerry/John Edwards campaign on Thursday issued a news release that asked, "Shouldn't all New Mexicans have the right to see their VP?"

Ruben Pulido Jr., a spokesman for that campaign, said the Democratic Party has no screening requirements for those interested in seeing Kerry or Edwards.

When Kerry visited Albuquerque earlier this month, a contingent of Bush supporters were in the crowd. The Associated Press has reported that the group chanted "Viva Bush!" during the event. The AP added that Kerry urged the crowd to tolerate the Bush supporters.
Let us devote today's Two-Minute Cheney Love to a prayer: Oh Lord, We appreciate Thy divine restraint which hast kept Thou from smiting this foul slug, which art a boil upon the ass of Thy creation. We humbly beseech that Thou keep it up right through Nov. 2, after which Thou art to feel free to snuff it in any way Thou art comfortable with, and is least likely to get slime on Thy hand. Amen.
