— Vice President Dick Cheney has arrived at the U.S. Capitol in a wheelchair for the inauguration of Barack Obama.

Cheney was wheeled out behind President George W. Bush to take his place alongside dignitaries that included former Vice Presidents Al Gore, Dan Quayle and Walter Mondale.

The White House says Cheney pulled a muscle in his back while moving boxes. He and his wife are moving into a new home outside Washington in McLean, Va. His doctor recommended that he use a wheelchair for the next couple of days.

"The White House says Cheney pulled a muscle in his back while moving boxes."That is completely hilarious. Karma, big-time. It seems he let the swinging door hit his butt on the way out.Oh, man. That is just funny.

I guess he thought he payoffs from haliburton, his congressional and vp pensions and the oil company payoffs wouldn't be enought so he's looking for some workman's comp payments. Has he been talking to Fletcher Bell?

I hate Cheney. He has done more harm to this country than good. My sympathies for him and his go as far as my sympathies for a serial killer. I don't mind saying or thinking that I hope he is not long for this world.

From the photo, he looks less like Darth Vader, which I've always imagined him to be, and more like the Evil Emperor of the Galactic Empire: "George, the Force is strong with this new one."
