Ah...another day, another story of how Cheney is dragging this country closer to 1930s Germany...

A man walked up to Dick Cheney, calmly told him he thought his Iraq policy was reprehensible, and walked away. A few minutes later he was arrested by the Secret Service, in front of his 8-year-old son, for "assault".

When he asked what would happen to his child, the Secret Service said, "He can be sent to Child Services." Luckily, the boy found his mother and was safe.

This is a story that was just told by Matthew Rothschild on Thom Hartmann's radio show.
