Dick Cheney Shot a Guy!

I'm late to the party, but what a ridiculous news item. Our vice president really is a terrible human being, and I shouldn't find this so funny considering a guy was shot. Whatever, this should teach these stupid old farts that they shouldn't be waddling around in the woods shooting at birds anyway.

Here's Joel Achenbach:

As you know, quail hunting is what passes for military service in the upper ranks of the Bush Administration. Dick Cheney knows what it is like to fire a weapon in anger, particularly when the birds flush from the bracken unexpectedly. George W. Bush has flown airplanes, many of them folded from his personal stationery. Donald Rumsfeld has piloted boats and submarines through seemingly impenetrable mounds of suds. And so on. ...

I find the story reassuring. Cheney is a man who doesn't just talk the talk. No, if he's going to send American soldiers into harm's way, where they might be shot at any moment by a deranged fanatic, he's also going to do the same thing to his close personal friends.

Read the post above it mocking the Winter Olympics too, Achenblog was on fire today.
