STORY THAT WRITES ITS OWN JOKE: VICE-PRESIDENT CHENEY SHOOTS FRIEND ACCIDENTALLY

STORY THAT WRITES ITS OWN JOKE: VICE-PRESIDENT CHENEY SHOOTS FRIEND ACCIDENTALLY

Really. I'm not making this up.

I guess the good news is that he's not on the Olympic biathlon squad.

I wonder how up to date Cheney's NRA membership is....

When I shot competitively, we were forced to sit through safety lectures once or twice a year. No way would we have been aiming at head level if the target was up in the sky; no way would we have pulled the trigger without checking our target first.

Hunting injuries seem to happen more when no one's had a successful shot all day and then gets trigger happy.

I mentioned this to Patricia yesterday, I thought she had a pretty good response:

"Talk about the gang that couldn't shoot straight..."

I think that sums it up pretty well. And btw, when I shot competitively (in summer camp) they made us sit through that lecture almost every day. I still have my NRA medals. Every card carrying liberal should have at least one (I made it all the way to sharpshooter bar 3).

Actually, when you think about it, it kinda makes sense. Nobody in this administration has ever really been able to tell who the real enemy is. This is simply our foreign policy in a nut shell....

And now Cheney is claiming that it's the victim's fault--that he walked up behind him and failed to "announce himself."

*sheesh*

It was 5:30 PM, the Vice President hadn’t gotten a bird yet, he heard some rustling behind him, so he just turned and shot. He heard what he thought was a bird about to take flight, why wait to actually SEE it? But there will never be even one eyewitness that will admit that this is what happened. And of course, if alcohol was involved, that would make it criminal, so don’t talk to the cops till the next day. The 14 hours that elapsed before the Veep spook to the cops were probably spent setting up an account in the Cayman Islands for the family of the victim and funding it with several million dollars. Of course I can’t prove any of this but it seems fairly likely. SOP for the GWB administration.
