Dick Cheney just shot someone

Hehe.. I knew it was bound to happen one day, I just didn't expect it to be a duck-hunting accident. More like a Democrat or Ralph Nader or something. I think he just made history as the first US VP to ever shoot someone during office, not to mention a senior citizen. Now that's Gangsta! RESPECT! WAY TO GO DICK!

At least they've finally got a reason to put him on trial now, since nothing else ever sticks, and there's no more Scooter Libbys to take the fall for him.
Duck hunting? Were anyone of them going to eat those ducks or they were just gonna throw the poor things away.

Mohamed,

It is interesting, the concept of hunting as a gentlemen sport. I don't know why I imagined the BBC anchor was shrugging off the story as such. What is the philosophy behind hunting anyway?

p.s.: Inta fein ya mo?:-)

There are no trials when there are hunting accidents and yes most hurters eat what they kill. It's very rare for a hunter not to eat their kill. It was the guys fault for going into the brush without announcing himself to be in the area. He got hit with a few birdshot pellets, like getting hit with BB's, no big deal. It happened yesterday and the man was home later yesterday afternoon.

You are kidding right, or are you from a city? The philosopy is that if you hunt you eat, if you hunt you eat wild game and not artifically fed birds that someone else kills for you. I don't like buying meat from the grocery store, it is so much better to kill it yourself. Grocery stores are for the lazy.

It pays to be the man's friend, 'cause if you are, he only shoots to wound.

Those that say the Bush administration is "the gang that can't shoot straight" may have a point!

Mohammad: Of course they eat what they kill. Have you ever tasted roasted quail?

Here in the US a hunter is looked down on if he doesn't eat what he kills. However, it's permitted to donate a portion to charity if you are hunting large animals like elk or deer.

Actually, he's the second. Vice President Aaron Burr whacked Alexander Hamilton for dissing him.

This is a really funny story, the news anchors here in the US are having a REALLY hard time keeping a strait face when reporting it! Which I guess means that the guy Cheney shot(!) is not seriously hurt. Because otherwise it just wouldn't be that funny, eh?

I can't wait to see what SNL does with it this weekend...

Also, is AL Jazeera accusing Dick Cheney of using a banned weapon of mass destruction for duck hunting, yet?

Poor dick is probably having his nerves on the outside of his clothes. That is understandable considering what the Bush administration is up against. According to the Guardian, his lawyer friend sneaked up behind him. So much for lawyers! Probably what you can expect! The hostess on the giant ranch had tried to be "peppered" herself. When only you don't hit the eyes, the problem is not so big.

He better not have accidentally shot the dude in the ass... that would be way too much.

Actually, Aaron Burr shot and killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel while he was still Vice pResident in 1804 (although President Jefferson planned to run for reelection without him that September. He escaped to South Carolina (the legal system was different then, so he could avoid charges in New Jersey and New York by going to South Carolina and later Washington, where the others states had no jurisdiction), but ultimatly came back to Washington and served out the remainder of his tenure (he left in March 1805).

You are the mighty hunter,
now your face is turning red.
You thought you bagged a pheasant,
but it was your buddy's head!

I couldn't help but think of Joe Pesci in Good Fellas when he accidentally shot the kid in the leg then said "So what, this means I'm a good shot".
Hi Senefru, I've read your opinion about the diplomat's kidnapping, ready for some bickering :)?

Now Cheney has a reason to become a Moslem. The prophet was talking to him when he forbade alcohol.
