Democrats seem to be having all the victimization fun these days, with about every third one throwing out the racism or sexism charge five or six times a day. Please allow me, as a conservative/libertarian/moralistic pompous ass, to join in briefly. Just because Dick Cheney is from Wyoming, that doesn't give him any more right than a New Yorker or a Californian to make fun of West Virginia:
Vice President Dick Cheney threw a verbal insult at West Virginians on Monday, but quickly apologized.
Talking about his family roots and how he's distantly related to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, the vice president noted that he had Cheneys on both sides of his family.
"And we don't even live in West Virginia," Cheney quipped.
I know I'm from Kentucky rather than West Virginia, but I still claim the right to be offended, because we've just as often been subjected to that kind of vicious stereotyping. And don't use the "H" word in your replies. Just not acceptable.
