Cheney Disses West Virginia

Dick Cheney’s West Virginia incest joke elicits this response from John Cole, a West Virginia native:

I got about eight instant messages from people linking to this, and I would have posted something earlier but I was in bed with my sister. Just kidding, just kidding- that was a joke. Everyone who knows me is aware she isn’t my type, besides, she is dating my brother.

In all seriousness, that gets to the heart of the matter- anyone who has lived in WV for more than, say, an hour, has heard and probably made (as a matter of a defense mechanism) every incest joke you can think of already. While it was a a stupid thing to say and I expect every WV politician to denounce it, I am betting most of us don’t care what that corrupt old bastard has to say about us.

At least he didn’t shoot someone in the face this time.

    The song begins

    Almost heaven, West Virginia
    Blue ridge mountains
    Shenandoah river –

    named Country Roads, sung by John Denver Always one of my favorites.

    I remember several lifetimes ago listening to Mountaineer basketball (Univ of West Virginia in Morgantown, West Virginia) when Hot Rod Hundley and Rod Thorn and finally Jerry West played there.

    Cheney is a ‘doofus.’

    I know “Country Roads.” Not to be confused with “Country Road,” by James Taylor:

    Take to the highway won’t you, good girls and boys
    I’m all in pieces, you can have your own choice
    But I can hear a heavenly band full of angels
    and they’re coming to set me free
    I don’t know nothin’ ’bout the why or when
    but I can tell you that it’s bound to be
    ‘Cause I can feel it, lord, yes..
    walkin’ down a country road.
