Cheney to take the stand, blood of children
Defense attorneys are planning to call the vice president as a witness at Scooter Libby's trial next month, hoping he doesn't get hit by a bolt of lightning during the swearing-in.

"Was I concerned? Yes," Robert Bittman, a former deputy independent counsel, expects Cheney to say. "Was it my primary issue? No. My primary issue was making sure a nuclear weapon was not detonated in the United States."
Oh please. Then again, if it works, I may use that line of reasoning at my court date for assault and battery.
