Majority Of U.S. Still Thinks Scooter Libby Is What Cheney Rides To Work On By Lee Camp WASHINGTON Even though Vice President Cheney's former Chief of Staff Scooter Libby was indicted this week for lying to investigators, a new poll shows that most of America still thinks Scooter Libby is the vehicle that Dick Cheney rides to work.
Libby was the only man indicted in the investigation into who at the White House leaked the name of CIA agent Valerie Plame.
During the poll question David Trenton gave an answer representative of most citizens - "Scooter Libby? Isn't that the thing all the kids are riding with the two wheels in the back? So you're saying the government indicted that thing? That's too bad. My kids are gonna' be pissed!"
The poll results have surprised many analysts who thought the American public was smart enough to know that Cheney would never be caught dead riding on a vehicle that's not gasoline powered. Furthermore, some are worried the public will be confused even more by Cheney's new chief of staff - Bigwheel Addington.
