Vice president Dick Cheney found out yesterday that he probably won't make it as a stand up comedian at least not as far as West Virginians are concerned. Cheney was talking about how he and Barack Obama were related and that Obama had Cheney's on both sides of the family.
He then said, "And we don't even live in West Virginia."
"You can say those kind of things when your not running for re-election," he further stated.
West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin was angry and asked Cheney to immediately apologize.
Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia blasted Cheney stating, "a vice president to openly display such contempt and astounding ignorance toward his own countrymen" was an insult to all Americans.
"Now that he or the administration he represents no longer needs their vote, Mr. Cheney apparently feels that he is now free to mock and belittle the people of West Virginia," Byrd said.
Cheney immediately apologized for his comments .
