"VIDEO: Cheney Loudly Booed During First Pitch"

Vice President Cheney threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the home opener of the Washington Nationals game today. The crowd was was less than thrilled to have him there, loudly booing over the Fox News reporter. (Note: Fox producers muted the crowd audio halfway through before letting viewers “listen in” after the pitch.)

Watch it:

The good news: Cheney’s pitch landed in the dirt, not in someone’s face.

UPDATE: Wonkette has the pool report: “Gorgeous day, 70 degrees with happy, red-capped turnout est at 25k. VPOTUS stepped out onto field dressed in khakis and a Nats bomber jacket to the sound of thunderous boos and catcalls…”

UPDATE II: Garrett at FishBowlDC wonders whether the media tried to censor the boos.
