Dick Cheney Arrested For Shooting Lawyers Out of Season

Ok, Just to clue you in, Cheney wasn't arrested. That was a joke. One of many of which I'm sure Dick Cheney will be hearing for the rest of his life. The man Dick Cheney accidentally shot, Harry Whittington, who was peppered with birdshot, is doing fine.

"Waskiwy Wepubwican Wawyers" better watch out too. I can hear the lawyers secretaries now, "Excuse me Mr. Finster, A call from the Vice President. He wants to go hunting for you."

RadioBlogger.com has an excellent MP3 montage of the White House Press Corps 'peppering' Scott McClellan with a bunch of egotistical, 'Why wasn't I notified first' questions. RadioBlogger notes that not once did they ask how Mr. Whittington or the VP were doing. Generalissimo says, "It seems like all they care about is not being notified for 24 hours, because of course, it really is all about them."

- I (prying1) concur... -

My favorite from the montage was some dingbat reporter woman asking, ""Would it have been much more serious if the man had died?"

I'm still rolling here over that one!


A 'borrowed' collection follows

"Daily Show" host Jon Stewart, speaking as a "concerned parent," urged viewers never to let their children go on hunting trips with the vice president. "I don't care what kind of lucrative contracts they're trying to land, or energy regulation they're trying to get lifted. It's just not worth it."

"Good news, ladies and gentlemen, we have finally located weapons of mass destruction: It's Dick Cheney." Said David Letterman - & - "We can't get bin Laden, but we nailed a 78-year-old attorney."

Rush Limbaugh: - "Would you rather go hunting with Dick Cheney or riding in a car over a bridge with Ted Kennedy?" (The punch line: At least Cheney takes you to the hospital.)

The Herald in Scotland declared, "Cheney Bags a Lawyer," while the Sydney Morning Herald headlined its story "Cheney Hunts Quail and the World Ducks."

Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal says he'd be proud to hunt with the vice president: "cautious, but proud."

Jay Leno quipped "Cheney's popularity is now at 92 percent - having shot a lawyer."

"The CIA assured Cheney that Harry Whittington was actually a pheasant," - Democratic speechwriter Jeff Nussbaum.



"It has become clear that Cheney was doing the country a service when he avoided service."

prying1 sez: - Hoping you went to RadioBlogger.com and listened to the MP3. Put him in your favorites! -

One thing I have not heard re: the MSM being notified so late is the fact that names in incidents like this are not immediately released in traffic accidents, murders, accidental shootings etc., to give time for friends and relatives to be notified prior to hearing it on the 'news'. The delay in the MSM getting this is no big deal except to show once again how these 'news gatherers' think the world revolves around them.

These liberals always talk about touchy feely and caring but not one of them cared about poor Scott McClellan and his feelings... I would not last long in his job. I'd be laughing in the faces of the idiot questioners...

- One more thing - I bet Cheney is glad his name is not associated with this one - Man's elbow, mistaken for squirrel, shot -
