Say What? The Dick Cheney edition

News & Politics

Yet more evidence that leading members of the Bush administration belong to the reality-challenged community. Here's the Veep blaming his personality problems on a stint as Gerald Ford's White House chief of staff:

I always thought of myself as a calm, pleasant, warm, lovable sort, but after the '76 convention, some people in the press began calling me the Grand Teton. I can remember being short with people and, in the eyes of some, abrasive. But that's all I had time for. [NYT]
This also marks the only known occasion that any one has used the words calm, pleasant, warm, and lovable in association with Dick Cheney.
