Dick Cheney: Old school comic

A gay guy, a black guy, and a Jew walk into Congress…
[Cheney] offers his standard homage to tax cuts, a warning about how terrorists are still trying desperately "to cause mass death here in the United States" and a derisive cataloging of the various "Dean Democrats," congressmen including Charles B. Rangel of New York, Henry A. Waxman of California and Barney Frank of Massachusetts, whose influence would grow if the apocalypse came and Democrats took over Congress.
The crowd boos.
"Don't hold back," Mr. Cheney urges.
The crowd laughs.
As Steve says, "Yeah, a gay guy, a black guy, and a Jew. Nice to know the classic right-wing material still knocks 'em dead in Topeka."

Wait until he breaks out the props. Now that shit is hilarious.
