Former Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to speak in California to commemorate the centennial of President Ronald Reagan’s birth.

His appearance Saturday night comes as conservatives are newly energized, after elections last year in which Republicans gained ground in Congress and in many statehouses around the county.

Cheney, who had broad influence in George W. Bush’s White House, has heckled the Obama administration at many turns and has predicted President Barack Obama will be a one-term president.

The group sponsoring the event — the conservative Young America’s Foundation — was founded to promote conservative ideas on college campuses and purchased Reagan’s former ranch in 1998.

Sarah Palin addressed the group Friday.

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.

It is a smoked cheese bratwurst, covered in butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayo in a brioche bun. Just calm down, Tokyo Dog. Calm down.
