For Sale: Dick Cheney. Only $500,000,000. Going Once, Going Twice…
I realize there are a lot more important things going on than this, but this is just too absurd. As you probably know already, the Nigerian government has charged Dick Cheney in a huge bribery case, and is trying to have him arrested via Interpol. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison. In Nigeria.
And now, Halliburton is offering Nigeria a $500,000,000 settlement to keep Cheney out of jail. Is he worth it?
As the article points out, how do Halliburton employees and stockholders feel about “donating” five hundred million dollars just to keep their slippery ex-CEO out of prison?
If you think he’s worth it, buy Halliburton stock. Buy a whole lot of it. NOW.
Maybe some patriotic Americans will start a Dick Cheney Fund. Please donate. You wouldn’t want our sleazy ex-vice president to go to jail in one of those poor, backward countries, would you? Having terrible unspeakable things done to him by his icky third world inmates?
[ahem] Uh, you wouldn’t, now, would you???
