Dick Cheney's Empire Christmas Card

24dec03

"If a sparrow can fall to the ground without His notice, 
it is likely that an empire can rise without His help?" 

The 2003 Christmas card of Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney, quoting Benjamin Franklin: 'If a sparrow can fall to the ground without His notice, it is likely that an empire can rise without His help?' is shown in this image made Saturday, Jan. 24, 2004, in Washington. Asked on Saturday whether he considered the United States to be an empire, Vice President Cheney, had the perfect dodge: Ask my wife. Lynne Cheney was responsible, the vice president said, for the quote from Franklin on the family Christmas card. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
