Dick shoots off prematurely, stains hunting record...

Everyone's jumping on this story, so I just figured rather than just link to the story, I'd put in a plug for the exceptional legal-themed blog, Firedoglake. She's been covering this like crazy today, with well thought out legal issues and intelligent comments by the readership as well.

Update: Feb. 17 2006
Whittington got discharged from the hospital early and gets right up onto a stage and basically says the equivalent of "Thank you sir, may I have another?" Click here for the NYT story and take a good look at that face of his. Then try to imaging saying this about the man that shot you:
"My family and I are deeply sorry for all that Vice President Cheney has had to go through this past week," Mr. Whittington said today. "We send our love and respect to them as they deal with situations that are much more serious than what we've had this week."

Mr. Whittington said of the vice president, "We hope that he will continue to come to Texas and seek the relaxation that he deserves."

Why don't you tickle his balls while you're down there Harry?

He continues on to say that the incident is not easy to explain to those of us who aren't familiar with "the great sport of quail hunting". Oh yes, that wonderful, magical "sport" of canned hunting which involves the shooting of hundreds of birds that were born and raised in cages specifically to be released and act as targets for bored, rich assholes.

Seriously, these birds have never flown before and they don't regard humans as any sort of threat (in fact they associate humans with feeding time and are likely to be drawn to them rather than away). So basically you can just trounce through the bush, blasting away defenseless animals left and right until you feel like enough of a man. Cheney's no stranger to these kind of "hunts". I looked up some other hunting trips and Cheney has been recorded as bagging 70 pheasants in one day, then lunch, followed by a new hunt after releasing penned mallard duck.

Anyone who could participate in a hunt like that is a soulless coward.

I guess he's just more forgiving then the 86 men, women and children at Waco that Clinton has slaughtered.

I don't know why every GOP apologist that takes exception to what I say seems to think I have some sort of hard-on for the clinton family.

Newsflash, just because Bush is the biggest asshole in the room doesen't mean I think he's the only one.

But if you want to measure a presidency in body counts, stick with commander codpiece, he gets way more impressive numbers. From even his early days of making sure that the mentally retarded don't get a pass on being executed, regardless of weather or not they can read or write, name the days of the week or months of the year or even say how many nickels are in a dime, to his current gig of keeping America so afraid of a major world religion that they don't seem to care what kind of horrors are perpetrated in their name.

Clearly, in the business of killing, pain and sorrow, Bush leads the pack. As long as someone else pulls the trigger that is.
