Not since Aaron Burr has a sitting Vice President tried to kill someone. Well, as long as you don't count starting unnecessary wars. Of course, the shooting was an "accident." A man can't be expected to look first, shoot second! At least, not a "real" man like Deadeye Dick. Too bad his hunting partner wasn't as good at dodging birdshot as Cheney was at dodging the draft.
Dick Cheney's To-Do List
- Shoot somebody -- it's been a bad week
- Recharge the defibrillator
- Watch Olympic Ice Dancing at "undiclosed location"
- Make up new lies about WMD -- don't forget "mushroom clouds"
- Blame hunting "accident" on Democrats
- Leak classified info
- Send Bush more pretzels
