It's good to be the king

via Raw Story:
An analysis released by a Democratic senator found that Vice President Dick Cheney's Halliburton stock options have risen 3,281 percent in the last year, RAW STORY can reveal.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) asserts that Cheney's options -- worth $241,498 a year ago -- are now valued at more than $8 million. The former CEO of the oil and gas services juggernaut, Cheney has pledged to give proceeds to charity.

My guess is that very soon we will find out that the charity of Cheney's choice will be the Richard Cheney Legal Defense Fund, though a mil or two might go to the Cement Galoshes for Patrick Fitzgerald Fund
