More Helen

Affectionate humor:

Helen Thomas of Hearst Newspapers then questioned the sincerity of Cheney’s MySpace page in what became a rather heated exchange.

THOMAS: How do we know these are really the vice president’s words? That it’s not just a summer intern filling up his pages?

SNOW: Because I just told you, Helen.

THOMAS: So Dick Cheney watches Pimp My Ride and listens to the Butthole Surfers?

SNOW: Apparently, yes.

I honestly don’t know what’s funnier: the idea of the exact shape of snarl on Cheney’s face as he experiences the Butthole Surfers, or the idea of Helen Thomas saying “Butthole Surfers.”

Either way, I think we win.
