Did Cheney Doze Off During Bush’s Farewell Address?

Cheney wasn't the only one showing a lack of interest.

Vice President Cheney may have dozed off during Bush's apparently somniferous farewell speech last night. Courtesy of Examiner.com:

As Bush said, "But we must reject isolationism and its companion, protectionism. Retreating behind our borders would only invite danger..."

Cheney's eyelids briefly fluttered shut. He immediately roused himself and sat up straighter and shifted in his chair.

ThinkProgress notes that this is not the first time Cheney has inopportunely caught up on sleep. In their video here, he make his narcoleptic tendencies even more obvious during a cabinet meeting to discuss California wildfires in 2007.
