Dick Cheney endorses Marco Rubio immediately following allegations of corruption

From the "you can't make this shit up" file, here's an interesting paragraph out of an AP article today:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney was the latest to give his support Thursday, a day after [Marco] Rubio repaid Florida's Republican Party $2,417 for double-billed flights, an expense he blamed on an accounting error he discovered after the first of several stories on the flap appeared a few weeks ago in The Miami Herald and the St. Petersburg Times.
 So, let me get this straight -- the former VP, CEP of Haliburton and Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, the same Dick Cheney that was at the heart of so many nexuses (is it nexuses or nexi?) of corruption between the public and private sectors, endorses Marco Rubio AFTER he is implicated in several ethics scandals?  It does seem that the universe has a sense of humor, after all....
