Oh -- about Dick Cheney taking a hunting weekend on a lobbyist's ranch,

-- in the middle of a scandal about lobbyists...

("Oh, I've never lobbied him that I can remember" said the lady...)

It's rude to call a lady a lying bitch, so I won't.

--- from ATTYTOOD, the Philly flash:

"Armstrong became a lobbyist just three short years ago. She had no prior experience in lobbying, nor does she have a law degree. Her recent governmental experience consists of her recent stint as chair of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission. In recent years, the divorcee has been raising her three kids and been involved in philanthropic causes around Dallas...

companies are paying big bucks for the Texas-based Armstrong to lobby the federal government in Washington -- including, yes, the White House...

Houston law firm
Baker Botts -- the favorite American law firm of the Saudi royal family, among many international clients -- paid Armstrong $160,000 in 2004 to lobby the Bush White House:

The records indicate she was paid the money after she "communicated with the White House on behalf of Baker Botts clients."

In a phone interview, she told NBC News that in return for the money in one case, she set up a meeting at the White House for a Baker Botts client, although she said she felt she could not release the client’s name.

"A meeting for doing something with one of their clients," she said, describing the event. "I’m not at liberty to say which." She says she cannot remember which White House official the meeting was with. She also said that during the inauguration proceedings, she got Karl Rove to speak at a Baker Botts function. "I got them Karl Rove," she said.

She insists that she never lobbied Bush or Cheney directly.


Well what would you expect -- that Dick Cheney has ANY friends who actually tell the truth?
Who even know how?

It's enough to start the pitchfork- and torch- carriers on their way down Pennsylvania Avenue...
