A is for AWOL: Dick Cheney pulls a Condi 19180
Condoleeza Rice isn't the only one using Hurricane Katrina as the ideal time for a vacation. While she landed in the gossip blogs' wrath for picking up shoes at Ferragamo, Dick Cheney has also been enjoying some leisure time.

"Nobody's going to confuse Dick Cheney with a warm and fuzzy guy," Begala said. "You're not going to send him to be comforter-in-chief. He's the type of guy who would look at them and growl, 'Life's tough. Get back to work.' Plus he's busy ruining Iraq."
And also, he doesn't quite like black people as much as President Bush. At least for photo ops.
