Maureen Dowd wrote an informative column, “Darth Vader Vents,” about Dick Cheney’s new memoir.
In her column on Cheney whom she calls Darth Vader, Maureen Dowd recounts a portion of Cheney’s memoir where he talks about how he received a letter from the Commander of Camp David’s Laurel Lodge about his large dog, Dave:
“There were few times before the bitter end that W. was willing to stand up to Vice. But the president did make a bold stand on not letting his little dog be gobbled up by Cheney’s big dog.
When Vice’s hundred-pound yellow Lab, Dave, went after W.’s beloved Scottish terrier, Barney, at Camp David’s Laurel Lodge, that was a bridge too far.
When Cheney and Dave got back to their cabin, there was a knock at the door. “It was the camp commander,” Cheney writes. “ ‘Mr. Vice President,’ he said, ‘your dog has been banned from Laurel.’ ””
