I recall from the TV shows about emergency rooms: the seriously soused men always claimed to have had '1 or 2 beers'.

No doubt. ER patients by rule have never had more than two beers and have never been beaten up by less than "two dudes." Nobody gets drunk and nobody gets his a$$ kicked by only one guy.

I wonder how long the spin room discussion was on whether to state 0, 1 or 2 beers for Cheney. Zero could be easily refuted. Two would seem more plausible to the general populace. Only one "with lunch" would be more acceptable to the hard core righties. Guess they went with their base.
