Why Is Cheney Smiling?

In this photo of Vice President Dick Cheney, released by the White House to show his supposed love of the outdoors, there appears to be a naked woman in his reflecting sunglasses.

Inept White House officials rushed to offer an ham-handed explanation of the photo, quickly releasing a "high definition" version of the same photo (retouched, this time?) and insisting that the reflection only shows the Vice President's hand holding a fishing rod.

But, who knows? Maybe the entire story originated in the White House itself -- attempting to draw media and public attention away from the breaking news of long-awaited proof that Cheney himself approved and micromanaged, from the basement of the White House, the torture of suspects being held at Guantanamo. Could it be coincidence that the stories broke on the very same day?
