This blog doesn’t normally do political topics, or share political humor… but this story from The Onion is just too delicious to pass up.

I got Condoleezza [Rice] a beautiful blue blazer, and for my wife [Lynne] I bought a diamond necklace, a new winter coat, and this neat little motorized airplane ornament to hang on the 9/11 towers,” Cheney told reporters while perusing the windows of New York’s famed Park Avenue shops.

The story, “Cheney Waits Until Last Minute Again To Buy Sept. 11 Gifts,” came out today. The Onion’s new atlas is due out next month, can’t wait for it.
