February's Soap Box Lecture: Vice President, Dick Cheney
Bernal Bubbles is very pleased and honored to announce that the first speaker in their election year lecture series will be Richard Bruce "Dick" Cheney, the forty-sixth and current Vice President of the United States.
Fresh from the hospital (where he had his heart shrunk one more time) and after having won the hearts and minds of the American people (not to mention the Iraqis), "Dick" will give his farewell address to the American people at this popular San Francisco laundromat.
Says Dick, "Uh, as I leave my position at the end of this year, I leave America a better place and I, uh, leave a safer world and, uh, to those who don't believe me: I'll just have to shoot you in the face."
