Dick Cheney Songs

It's been pretty quiet on the Dick Cheney front since President Obama was elected, but Dick's been in the news a lot recently. His re-entry into the public spotlight is to promote his newly released memoir, "In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir". As former Vice President Cheney does the interview circuit, and talk show hosts have fun dusting off the old hunting jokes, his book has rocketed to the #1 spot on Amazon.com's best sellers list. Colin Powell has added fuel to the fire by accusing Cheney of taking "cheap shots" against him and Condoleezza Rice, among others. I'm not one to paint politicians as evil incarnate, which can be hard to resist considering our perspective is framed by the media. And the media has certainly not been kind to Dick Cheney. This playlist includes 10 songs inspired by, or that mention Dick Cheney. I tried to find a song that was kind to Cheney, but to no avail. If you're aware of one, please let me know in the comments.
