Dick 'Elmer Fudd' Cheney

VP Cheney didn't shoot anyone, he 'sprayed' them.

Accidents like this happen ALL the time. In fact most bird hunters have been 'peppered' at least a couple of times.

It obviously wasn't the VP's fault, the guy snuck up behind him. Everyone knows if you sneak up behind someone that has a gun, you should expect to get 'peppered'.

Besides, the guy wasn't really hurt, they just put him in intensive care because the other hospital beds were all filled.

Oh yeah, and the wounds were only superficial. That's why many of the 'peppers' will be left in the victim.

A VP can hunt, and then fulfil the proper licensing requirements after the fact.

And, being VP has its advantages. If you 'pepper' someone with a shotgun, you don't need to be interviewed by the sheriff immediately, the interview can be done later by phone or something.

Can you imagine what the Republicans would be saying if Al Gore or John Kerry were involved in this type of hunting accident? I'm pretty sure it would be characterized as attempted murder.

I know Cheney opposes gun control but this is ridiculous! :-)

Maybe he forgot he was a campaign donor and thought he was a terrorist or liberal (same thing in his eyes).
