From the puff piece about Dick Cheney in tomorrow's New York Times, which focuses on a Topeka speech by the vice president:

He offers his standard homage to tax cuts, a warning about how terrorists are still trying desperately "to cause mass death here in the United States" and a derisive cataloging of the various "Dean Democrats," congressmen including Charles B. Rangel of New York, Henry A. Waxman of California and Barney Frank of Massachusetts, whose influence would grow if the apocalypse came and Democrats took over Congress.

The crowd boos.

"Don't hold back," Mr. Cheney urges.

The crowd laughs.

Yeah, a gay guy, a black guy, and a Jew.

Nice to know the classic right-wing material still knocks 'em dead in Topeka.
