If I Knew You Were Coming...

..I'd-a-baked a cake. Or more likely shown up to get as close as I could to protest your pasty fat asses. Dick and Lynne-the-porn-writer visited San Diego today. Due to the "official" morale boosting (hahahaha) stop, half of his fundraising trip will be picked up by the taxpayers. Cheney knows how to rob us and pick the carcass clean. Dick gave a heartfelt fifteen minute speech to a hand picked audience of sailors, (Marines and Navy), aboard an amphibious assault ship, the Bonhomme Richard. (Poor Richard, Bad Man Dick?) The man who had "other priorities" when his country needed him for Vietnam said, "Each of you serves the United States of America in a period of national challenge, military transformation and unprecedented threats," Cheney said. "We have asked you and your comrades to carry out urgent, difficult assignments one after the other," he said. "You have done so day in and day out with exemplary skill and honor." And off to the real purpose of the taxpayer funded trip: Following his speech at Naval Base San Diego, Cheney addressed a fundraising luncheon for Bilbray at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina."There is no doubt in my mind that Brian has the experience and the qualifications to be a superb member of the 50th District here in California," Cheney said. "I look forward to welcoming him to Washington after a solid victory on the sixth of June."
The 50th District is Randy Cunningham's old seat, the one he left in disgrace having been convicted of receiving bribes for defense contracts.
There were protesters. As usual.
Dick did some fundraising in San Francisco and Stockton. More crooks. Pombo and Doolittle are both involved in the Abramoff scandal. Cheney has no principles. It's all about winning...and crushing any opposition. Issa the arsonist who funded the Davis recall petition was there to kiss more Dick ass.
Cheney Tries to Boost California Republicans
The $2,100-a-plate luncheon raised more than $200,000 for Bilbray's campaign in a race that has already cost candidates and party committees more than $10 million.
Cheney was joined on the dais by San Diego-area Republicans including Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista; Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine; and former Gov. Pete Wilson _ all part of a Southern California GOP establishment that has endorsed Bilbray to replace Cunningham.
Cheney's stop in San Diego followed a private luncheon Monday in Sacramento for Rep. John Doolittle of Roseville and a fundraising cocktail hour in Stockton for Rep. Richard Pombo of Tracy _ the two veteran California GOP congressman who took the most money from disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his clients.

Pombo received $31,250 from Abramoff and his clients, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan watchdog group that analyzed political contributions. Pombo has donated to charity the $7,000 he received directly from Abramoff. Doolittle received $56,250 from the former lobbyist and his clients, according to the group, and has kept the money, saying there was nothing improper about it.

Cheney's speech Monday night brought in over $200,000 for Pombo, an eight-term congressman, who faces a surprisingly strong primary challenger. Pete McCloskey, a 78-year-old war hero and former congressman, has challenged Pombo on his environmental record.

Get the hell out of our state, crooked fat boy.
