Some rumors are just too gross to be false…
"Here’s a story we’re working on now," Letterman said, according to Madsen’s account. "Apparently, there are rumors coming out of Washington that Vice President Dick Cheney, when he was the CEO of Halliburton, used to go visit prostitutes. This could explain why one girl was paid two billion dollars. I mean, I was thinking about this and Cheney … I mean, going to a prostitute, that’s … I mean, I can’t believe a good-looking guy like that would ever have to pay for sex, you know what I’m saying?"
Wonkette explained why its staffers were "underwhelmed by this rumor."
"Because even if it’s a fact, which it probably is, there’s no way it would have any impact on Cheney’s ‘career,’" Wonkette continued. "This is a draft-dodging half-human war criminal with a pregnant lesbian daughter who tells senators to fuck themselves and shoots his own friends in the face. Ordering an outcall hooker is positively innocent compared to the well-known things Cheney does every day."
