So Cheney Shot Someone

OK, I don't get it. Not the hunting part - ok, that too ... I'm vegetarian and never did get why anyone would kill a poor bird or animal! But for now, I really don't get why there's all this excitement over why the White House didn't tell the media about the shooting accident Cheney was involved in first. If there was any wrongdoing, that might be a story, but for now, the Veep was on vacation, and had what seems to be a not-too-uncommon accident where he hit a co-shooter. He did it in his personal time, and as I said, on the face of it, there was nothing improper. So why the hoopla? Does the White House Press Corps not have better things to talk about? What we going to do next - Scott McClellan comes forward and somberly announce that the President has some indigestion ... but not to worry, good ol' Bayer Antacid is at work (at which point, we can spend endless hours talking about a President illegally endorsing Bayer!)

Postscript Loved this joke from Jay Leno on the Tonight Show:
That’s the big story over the weekend. ... Dick Cheney accidentally shot a fellow hunter, a 78-year-old lawyer. In fact, when people found out he shot a lawyer, his popularity is now at 92 percent.

You want one more - ok, here's Letterman:

Good news, ladies and gentlemen, we have finally located weapons of mass destruction: It’s Dick Cheney!
