Now Cheney, to patronize George W, took him outside and hailed a taxi
"Please take me to 29 Nickel Street to see if I'm home," said Cheney.
The cab driver without saying a word drove them to Nickel Street, and
when they finally got out, Cheney looked at George W. and said, "See!
That guy was really stupid."
"No kidding," replied George W. "There was a pay phone just around
the corner. You could have called instead."
