The Gang who Couldn't Shoot Straight

The punchlines write themselves: Cheney accidentally shoots fellow hunter

You notice this happened yesterday? They spent the last 24 hours trying to figure out how to cover it up.

... and I think the MSM is editorializing by saying 'accidentally' - they don't know that. They weren't there. Who knows what that old guy might have said to set him off?

FWIW, the last time, to my knowledge, that a VP actually shot someone was when Aaron Burr shot and killed Alexander Hamilton, and he was out of office at the time.

UPDATE: A wag remarks, "maybe it's a good thing Cheney got a long list of deferrments from Vietnam."

The punchlines just write themselves...

Vice President Cheyney took a page from the Edward M. Kennedy Book of owning up to major accidents caused by a prominent politician by delaying for a day the announcement that he had shot and wounded a hunting companion. Fortunately, he did not follow Senator Kennedy's example too closely; Cheyney's victim is still alive.
