From the indomitable Ray Winninger:


These photos were taken yesterday. Apparently, Dick Cheney didn’t realize that maybe you should wear something black TO A MEMORIAL SERVICE AT AUSCHWITZ! In fact, maybe you shouldn’t dress like you’re about to go out and shovel the walk. Making the faux-pas even stranger--almost immediately after the service was over, he changed into the much more appropriate get-up he’s wearing in the bottom picture to attend the rest of his meetings. What was he thinking? “Ah, I’ll wait until AFTER the MEMORIAL SERVICE AT AUSCHWITZ before I put on my formal wear?”

(Best of Ray: see his review of Starship Troopers 2. Brrrrrrrr.)
