Be Vewwwwwwy Quiet!

U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney has shot and wounded a 78-year-old fellow hunter during a Texas quail shoot.

I couldn’t let this story go by without mention, though I think that in many respects, the administration is probably happier to see this dominating the news than, say, other stories from the weekend.

Perhaps the vice president should have taken Scooter on a hunting trip before he had a chance to testify. But that opportunity has likely passed, and I fear that the secret service may have to pay special attention to wrestling the veep’s whiskey away from him next time he’s getting ready to wave around a firearm.

Elephant hunting, anyone?

I know the "Guns'R'Fun" folks will argue with me, but I always say, "If you're going to hunt, always eat what you shoot." Enjoy your Whttington, Mr. Vice President.
