Dick's Picks

Kiko's House has been unrelentingly negative when it comes to Vice President Cheney. (I've also pretty much consistently misspelled his name up until now.) But there's hope yet for the Bush administration's Death Star because it turns out that he's got pretty good taste in music.

A hat tip to Will Bunch at Attytood, the Philadelphia Daily News weblog, for enlightening me on what songs Cheney had loaded on his iPod during a recent Asian trip.

Writes Will:
Wow -- we never thought we'd see the words "Cheney" and "iPod" in the same sentence, unless it somehow contained the word "ban." That sparked our curiosity, and we did some snooping around. We don't want to compromise our intelligence gathering methods, but we did find this recent "random 10" from the vice president. Some surprising stuff!
The King of Pain (The Police)
Total Eclipse of the Heart (Bonnie Tyler)
Hey Joe (The Seeds)
I Can't Drive 55 (Sammy Hagar)
(I've Got) The Power (Snap)
Sharp Dressed Man (ZZ Top)
Cover You in Oil (AC/DC)
King for a Day (Green Day)
Liar, Liar (The Castaways)
Don't Worry About the Government (Talking Heads)

Frankly, we wonder how that last one slipped in there. Anybody else know of some "Classic Dick" that we left off the list?
