There's a war on. Evidence has surfaced that American Marines massacred as many as two dozen Iraqi civilians in Haditha last November. The president's poll numbers are in the toilet.

When the local TV news in Casper, Wyo., KCWY-News 13, lands an interview with the vice president and Mrs. Cheney, this hard-hitting journalist isn't afraid to ask the tough questions:


"Where did you two meet?"

All the fun is here, in the complete transcript of this historic exchange, courtesy of the White House, including the startling revelation that the young Lynne was a scratch baton twirler.
