Wabbit Season! Duck Season! Cheney Season?

Comedy = Tragedy + Time






That should do it.

OK, we've all read about this by now:

WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with shotgun pellets.

(1) Didn't the victim, Harry Whittington, learn anything from Alexander Hamilton? When the Vice President has a gun: duck.

(2) Looks like someone didn't support the troops enough.

(3) Guns don't kill people; although the Vice President made a pretty good showing.

(4) This is a new strategy from the White House: if media coverage goes sour, raise the threat level. If that fails, Cheney shoots someone.

(5) I pictured this Monty Python Sketch. Or this one:

(6) Mission Accomplished

(7) This was Bush's weekend to be the "Smart One".

The good news, of course, is that the victim seems to be doing well and will make a full recovery. The bad news is that Cheney's not going to be on Best Week Ever.
