What? It makes perfect sense after reading this (emphasis gleefully added):
Vice President Dick Cheney said Wednesday that his image has gotten a bad rap in the press and that he is in fact "a warm, lovable sort."
Cheney conceded in an interview with CBS radio that he sometimes expresses himself "rather forcefully toward some of my compatriots, like Pat Leahy from Vermont" but dismissed as a caricature the idea that he is a "Darth Vader-type personality."
"I think all of that’s been pretty dramatically overdone," the vice president said. "I’m actually a warm, lovable sort."
As God is my witness, I have no idea where to go next with this. Who knew Darth McShoot-him-in-the-face could give Patsy such a run for his money in the "divorced from reality" sweepstakes?
Now that I think about it ... who couldn't love this face? No, really.
