“Sears portrait studio backdrop?!?”

Now Jon, that’s the 18th green at Teton Pines Country Club, Dick’s backyard.

At such a critical moment in the life of our nation, let’s send these two great patriots to Iraq. I hear the caddis hatch on the Tigris is exquisite this year.

Dick Cheney, pictured here when he was vice president, had been enjoying a peaceful holiday vacation in Jackson Hole, while chaos still reigns in Anbar, Iraq.

On my way home from skiing yesterday, I stopped at Albertsons to get a bag of salt. Been having a problem with ice buildup on the side of my house, the result of new gutters depositing melting snow onto the frozen ground.

I grabbed a 25-pound bag from outside, walked into the store and paid for it.

Let the parade of private jets commence into Grand Teton National Airstrip.

There will be a few folks, unable to pony up $30,000 for dinner, who will give Mitt their own welcome along Highway 390 on Thursday afternoon.

The address at Chez Cheney is 4205 W. Greens Place, for anyone who might have misplaced it amidst all the excitement at the last dressage match.

Update 7/13: I imagine our local elected officials who paid $2,500 to hear this must have felt pretty foolish:

“When I think about the kind of individual I want in the Oval Office in that moment of crisis, who has to make those key decisions, some of them life-and-death decisions, some of them decisions as commander in chief, who has the responsibility for sending some of our young men and women into harm’s way, that man is Mitt Romney,” Cheney told the crowd.
