Have you received your invitation yet for the fundraiser that Vice President Dick Cheney is attending to raise money for embattled Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay?

No?

Well, apparently, according to the Houston Chronicle, the whole thing is very "hush-hush." Cheney's spokeswoman says it's being kept under wraps because of "security concerns."

Uh-huh. Though not so under wraps that invitations for the event, which will be held at the Westin Galleria Hotel on Sept. 16 from 5-7 p.m., haven't already arrived at the doors of DeLay supporters.

One Houston executive, who has already put the time and date on her calendar said: "It is just a fundraiser to show that Mr. DeLay has got the support of the administration," she said.
