Dick Cheney Birthday Bash & Retirement Party January 30
A retirement party celebrating Vice President Dick Cheney's 65th birthday―and eagerly anticipated departure from public life―will be held in the hometown of the Lincoln, Nebraska native Monday, January 30, 2006, 65 years exactly to the day of his birth.
This not-to-be-missed "Birthday Bash and Retirement Party" on the site of the Vice President's old stomping grounds will provide an ideal setting for a catalog of the crimes and ignominies of Cheney's vice presidency, while simultaneously raising the call for his impeachment and an end to the 'culture of corruption' now pervading the Oval Office.
The gala birthday affair is being hosted by a homegrown collection of Lincoln-based organizations, including the Nebraska Green Party and the locally legendary Nebraskans for Peace, which―as the nation's oldest statewide Peace & Justice organization―has been publicly calling for Cheney's impeachment ever since the native son made a whirlwind campaign stopover at his childhood home in June 2004 for the sole purpose of headlining a $250-dollar-a-plate partisan fundraiser. Scheduled to run from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Monday evening the 30th, the farewell fete will be held at Duggan's Pub, 440 S. 11th Street in Lincoln (at the corner of 11th & 'K' Streets), just 24 hours before the Vice President's cohort delivers the 2006 State of the Union address.
In addition to music provided by the "Tricky Dicks," the speaker line-up for the event will include Democratic National Committee Executive Committee member and DNC Native American Caucus leader Frank LaMere of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska; University of Nebraska-Lincoln Professor Robert Hitchcock, who heads up the institution's Conflict and Conflict Resolution program; former Green Party 1st Congressional District candidate Steve Larrick, addressing Cheney's oily business dealings; and number of other speakers who will cover everything from the Vice President's repeated efforts to abrogate the American people's civil liberties to the estimated price tag of his retirement pension and benefits package.
A more fitting tribute by the folks back home for a figure of his renown is not to be imagined. That the citizens of his hometown would go to such lengths to commemorate the storied career of one of their very own, merits―one would surely think―national attention and consideration. And for just a sampling of the tenor the local organizers are endeavoring to strike on this august occasion, the following specially commissioned birthday ditty is tendered…
Happy birthday to you,
you, crim-i-nal, you;
we want your impeachment,
and your running mate's too.
