Hugh Hewitt notes that Dick and Lynne Cheney’s 2005 charitable giving totalled $6.87 million (to be precise, $6,869,655). That’s a sizeable sum, I suppose — but it’s only $6,869,302 more than the $353 that Al and Tipper Gore gave to charity in 1997.
P.S. Hey, it’s at least as relevant a pair of data points as Michael Hiltzik used to falsely claim that Hugh Hewitt’s blog traffic is in serious decline . . .
