Duck 'n Bunker
Some very interesting and original Cheney posts sprouting on the web like fungi on a cool and damp morning.
Here’s the impassioned Naman Crowe of the Chattanoogan.com, Chuck Baldwin of the American Daily, a self-described “news and commentary from the conservative side of things” webpage and a Phantom-esque Britt Hume congratulating himself for his Soviet-style, Minitrue interviewer skills.
In all, I was reminded of a Sunday December 8, 2002 front page Washington Post article on unexplained early morning and late night explosions heard and felt by neighbors of the Vice Presidential residence along northwest Washington’s stately Massachusetts Avenue promenade:
One man thought the noise was a sonic boom…a woman feared it was a bomb or an earthquake, she called the police. But they had no answers…one thing is certain: They're tired of the daily blasting at the Naval Observatory that has shaken houses, rattled windows and knocked mirrors off the walls…The blasts, which last three to five seconds apiece, have been going off two or three times a day -- as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 11 p.m. -- for nearly two months, residents say…Thus far, the federal government's only response to the residents has been a three-page letter…blasting could last eight more months…If residents' [bunker] speculation is accurate and construction workers are digging deep into the ground, the project would be going through about 35 feet of common sand and gravel, according to federal officials at the U.S. Geological Survey. Anything beyond that depth would hit tonalite, an intrusive igneous rock similar to granite and common to this area.
On October 12, 2003 the conservative site NewsMax credited the Post’s information to Vanity Fair and suggested the Vice President was having a "fully equipped hospital emergency room in his home".
However, to this weary camper, a straight, old-fashioned bunker sounds more likely but I think serious people need to seriously consider that Dick Cheney could be also keeping his own version of Dr. Evil’s Alan Parson Project time machine and/or a Disney-esque cryogenic freezer deep within Earth’s igneous mantle.
Then, long forgotten after hundreds of years, Dick Cheney will resurrect himself from his computerized sarcophagus to wreak terror on dystopian future populations of Eloi.
