Cheney puts foot in mouth, shoots self in foot

When Cheney gets a fact wrong, he really does it right. During the debate Tuesday night with John Edwards, Cheney responded to Edwards' comments about his ties with Halliburton by telling viewers, "If you go, for example, to FactCheck.com...you can get the specific details with respect to Halliburton."

Oops. FactCheck.com is sponsored by billionaire Bush-detractor George Soros. Among the facts Cheney's slip-up directed you to: "President Bush is endangering our safety, hurting our vital interests, and undermining American values."

Memo to Cheney: Maybe you meant FactCheck.ORG, a site run by the Annenberg Public Policy Center. But then again, maybe you didn't. Telling the truth--even inadvertently--may tip your karma balance enough to keep you out of hell.
