• The University of Wyoming's Dick Cheney Center for International Students and Brain-Exploding Irony

    When you think of a safe and nurturing set of arms lovingly outstretched for foreign-born young adults, it's pretty much impossible to escape the one most obvious correlation:

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney

    A decision by the University of Wyoming to name a new center for international students for former Vice President Dick Cheney is drawing criticism from people who say Cheney's support for the Iraq war and harsh interrogation techniques should disqualify him from the distinction…

    The center is funded in part with $3.2 million the Cheneys donated to the university in several installments while he was vice president…

    "We feel that by naming it the Cheney International Center, that the programs and UW can't avoid being identified with that ideology and that approach to global politics that the Bush-Cheney administration championed," Pelican said Tuesday.

    Awesome! The new Cheney Center for International Students should really fill out the quad nicely, right alongside the university's excellent Lohan Center for Feminist Studies and the Vick Center for Veterinary Medicine.

    At any rate, it's gotta be more popular than the old Cheney Center for International Students (his basement).
