Dick Cheney = Dr. Strangelove???

Okay, this is a pathetically inconsequential diary and the observation wasn't even mine, but that of a colleague of my spouse's, and he doesn't blog. But as soon as this was relayed to me, I realized it was brilliantly correct:
Seeing Dick Cheney in the wheelchair was like Dr. Strangelove in "Dr. Strangelove."
Though I'm not sure just how sincerely Cheney would wrestle with his right arm. Or his far right arm as the case might be.
If you haven't seen "Dr. Strangelove" and have no idea what I'm talking about, rent it. Classic dark comedy from the Cold War. With characters like "Col. Bat Guano."
