World leaders assembled in Poland (no, we didn’t forget Poland) on Thursday marking the 60th anniversary of the death camp’s liberation, such as French President Jacques Chirac and Russian President Vladimir Putin, wore dark, formal overcoats and dress shoes or boots.
The vice president, however, was dressed in the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower.
Vice President Dick Cheney sported an olive-drab parka, hiking boots and knit ski cap to represent the United States at a solemn ceremony remembering the liberation of Auschwitz. Nothing says liberation like a “Staff 2001” ski hat. Even Joan Rivers would be disappointed.
