    Cheney: I Asked Lynne If It Bugs Her That People Call Me Darth Vader

    Vice President Dick Cheney cracked a number of jokes Wednesday night at the Radio & Television Correspondents' Dinner In Washington D.C. Cheney got some laughs when he told the audience that he had asked his wife, Lynne Cheney, whether the label Darth Vader applied to his personality. According to Cheney, his wife said it "humanizes you."

    It was bound to happen.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Vice President Cheney. I disagree with him on almost every issue, but I must say, his sense of humor works for me. Being opposed on politics does not mean we should demonize nor hate those we disagree with.
    I agree totally, organ transplantation is a wonderful thing. When our eldest daughter died as the result of a traffic accident in 1995 we donated all her vital organs. We know the heart recipient very well, who just happens to be gay and living life to the fullest. Life is the greatest gift you could ever give. Please let your family know what you want in the case of your death. Jennifer sure did, and we are thankful she did.

    Everywhere I can put "Organ Donor" (drivers liscence, medical POA, etc), I do. I don't understand those who don't; it costs you nothing and can save lives.

    Christ teaches us that the greatest honor is giving of yourself to others. How beautiful that your daughters gift' could give you something like that out of that darkest of tragedies.

    I'm an organ donor, too - but the way *some* (emphasis on the some) people talk about it is downright creepy: as if they're just hoping people drop dead so their organs are harvested. . . not in this forum, of course - but I've met some serious weirdos in my day who seem more like leeches than caring individuals.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Not how I expected this thread to go, but am very happy it has gone into donating organs. I think doing so is a very good thing.

    It vitally important that you let your family know what you want, just putting it on your drivers licence may not do it.

    eh. I would say it still depends. China, for example, I think, does it sort of wrong. Donating your organs is noble and life-saving. Harvesting others organs while they may or may not still need them isn't. but demand is high and the Chinese government doesn't really care what happens to the 'Troublemaking" dissident populace.

    Very true. Every responsible person should have already hammered out post-mortem plans with their NOK - especially if you have kids. My wife and I agreed to the plan long ago - let the docs take everything they might need, burn the rest, and save the ashes so we can be "buried" together. My parents did the same, and let me know where they want their ashes released.
