Our Vice President Once Confused Jessica Simpson with Jessica Lynch

Jessicas Simpson and Lynch

Honestly, politicians know about none of the important things going on in the world. The Examiner did a cute little “what you don’t know about Dick Cheney” piece on Monday, and it included this little tidbit:

He once confused Jessica Simpson with Jessica Lynch … [W]hen the vice president threw out the first pitch before a 2003 game between the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs, Cheney was first informed that “Nick Lachey — a native of Cincinnati — would sing the national anthem before the game and would be accompanied by his girlfriend, Jessica Simpson. Cheney thought Simpson’s name sounded familiar. He asked his staff: ‘Is that the soldier who was captured in Iraq?’” (That would be Jessica Lynch).
