Now we know that the Darth was speaking about Halliburton.
But even more indecent was that the VP's talking point was dittoed by Halliburton officials.
"Iraq was better than expected," said Jeff Tillery, analyst (who does research for Halliburton) at Pickering Energy Partners Inc. "Overall, there is nothing really to question or be skeptical about. I think the results are very good."
"Overall, there is nothing to question or be skeptical about." Dost that not soar far off the puke-ability chart?
Still think Cheney is not deeply connected with Halliburton?
"This was an exceptional quarter for Halliburton," said Dave Lesar, Halliburton's chairman, president and CEO.
Do we need any more proof that, "overall," what's good for Halliburton is, overall, bad for the rest of us?
And you thought Dick Cheney was kidding when he said, "We also have to work, though, sort of the dark side, if you will."
Or is that Halliburton's company policy.
