Cong. OH-2: Top Five Reasons Why Cheney Snubbed Schmidt (R)

This is hilarious. The Cincinnati Enquirer notes today that “usually, when Vice President Cheney comes to Cincinnati for a Republican fundraiser, his motorcade beelines to the deep-pockets city of Indian Hill,” but not this time. Cheney will raise funds for Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Cincinnati) on the west side of Cincinnati tonight, but "doesn’t have time in his schedule" for embattled incumbent Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Loveland).

Why not? Campaign aides for opponent Dr. Victoria Wulsin (D-Indian Hill) have come up with their Top Five Reasons Dick Cheney Said “No” to an Event with Jean Schmidt, and they want to know if anyone can top these:
5. Because Schmidt campaign manger Barry Bennett asked “Who’d show up, anyway?”

4. Because Cheney is too busy training for a marathon.

3. Because Cheney is embarrassed that Schmidt’s 33% approval rating is a full 15 percentage points higher than his.

2. Because Cheney is angry that Schmidt has only rubber-stamped the Bush Administration’s policy 87% of the time.

1. Because the Schmidt campaign’s “reckless disregard for the truth” clashes with Cheney’s preference for calculated, thoughtful disregard for the truth.
Any offerings?

Chabot should watch himself, aligning himself with Cheney is only more proof that he is a lapdog for the Bush Administration.
