    Dick Chaney just shot a fellow hunter. Well, maybe they can take care of their own problems.
    oh stop, the guy wasn't hurt

    I'd laugh the hardest if he shot a liberal who was for gun control.

    Seems like there would be more people watching Chaney.....he has always seemed like a loaded cannon with a silencer attached. Dangerous does not come close as to being an accurate adjective.

    (OK that's an edited verison....that seems OK to print)

    Its not so bad that Dick Cheney shot the guy. It is when the Secret Service had to stop Cheney from plucking and gutting him!

    It was the victim's own **** fault. Everyone standing to the left of Cheney is in danger. Don't we ALL know that?

    Am I the only one that thinks the VP's participation in all of this is kind of questionable?
    He boasts himself to be a great hunter as if he's up early in the morning, quietly and patiently tracking some game and then due to skill and perseverance, bags a few for dinner. Yeah, right.
    In reality, he goes to a game farm where quail are raised in captivity and taken out into the fields in crates. When the VP and his buddies drive up in a car (?!?), some flunky opens the crates and out come the little birds. They walk a few strides from the car (and the single malt scotches) and blow them away, taking out a lawyer in the process.
    It's not exactly what I'd call a "sport".

    It's hard to imagine what Cheney does with all his dead birds. Really, he's too big a guy to think he actually eats those tiny things.

    The euphamism "peppering" sounds like the guy was being prepared for some culinary excursion, not a hunting trip. "Hey Man! where's the salt?!"
    I guess this is the right forum for this discussion after all.

    I have to say that I want to appologize for starting this thread. I found it amusing.
    I just read where the lawyer was out of I.C.. They just put him back. It's seems that a few of the pellets found their way to his heart and he had a little heart attack.
    I'm not a hunter, but have been peppered while fishing by a hunter before. Nothing that broke the skin. This seems a lot more serious that that. I'm sure Whittingham will be OK. I had no Idea this guy was "shot". not "peppered".
    I fell into the coverup I guess, sorry.

    I don't like Bush and Cheney.

    That said, this is a sadly common accident. My bro in law has pellets in his neck to this day. Last year here in Utah, a handicapped son killed his father out duck hunting. I don't think it was a wise decision of dad to give his son a loaded gun, but even that wasn't national news.

    The only reason this is BIG news is that it involves a nationally disliked figure. I don't think the story qualifies for national news hysteria like it has. This should have been a minor note in the news.

    It's the cult of (negative) personality.

    I feel the same way about Paris Hilton. Why is she in the news? She's so utterly trvial in all ways.
