Dick. Get over here. Now.

I know it was a holiday weekend and all, but I didn't even know that Cheney went to Saudi Arabia. But there might've been a reason for that besides L-tryptophan. The above WaPo article makes a pretty bold assertion that should outrage right-wingers' sense of America #1. But won't.

Saudi Arabia is so concerned about the damage that the conflict in Iraq is doing across the region that it basically summoned Vice President Cheney for talks over the weekend, according to U.S. officials and foreign diplomats. The visit was originally portrayed as U.S. outreach to its oil-rich Arab ally.
