12.2.04 The vastly creepy Dick Cheney might get dumped as Vice Presidential running mate by Bush, due to increasing doubts about his morals and honesty (what - you didn't think he had any in the first place?). The FBI are investigating who leaked the name of a CIA spy to the press, and the trail is leading to Cheney. He's also implicated in a corruption scandal involving his "ex-firm" Halliburton. I say "ex-firm" because Cheney still receives $150,000 per year from Halliburton. The Guardian
has the details. posted by Dan | 16:41

magazine recently bought two book reviews from me. They must've liked what they read, because they've just commissioned another four reviews. Ink is a good read if you like books. I would say that, wouldn't I, I mean, they're going to pay me. But don't be so cynical. Cynical times have been banished, as Tony informed us when Alaistair left Number 10. We are now living in a new era of honesty and openess...er, I'm dreaming again. Listen - Ink really is a good magazine. Check it out. posted by Dan | 21:52
2.2.04 Blair is cornered, so the big lie prepares to enter the massage parlour for some serious reshaping.
If you thought Hutton was dodgy, just wait for the inquiry on why we went to war against Iraq. posted by Dan | 18:49
