Do I look like a frickin' quail?

Ok, I couldn’t resist this. Did you hear the story about U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney shooting his buddy in the face?
So what happened was this. Cheney and buddies take off on a quail-shooting gig. Cheney takes aim. But wait! His buddy somehow gets in the way and Cheney doesn’t see him. Result? The 78 year-old buddy (who was wearing the mandatory bright orange hunter’s vest, by the way) is peppered with birdshot in the face and neck. The medical posse that accompanies the veep and his cronies, as you can imagine, swooped down and took the old gent off to the hospital.
This incident could have happened to anyone who thinks shooting wingless birds is a fun thing to do, I suppose. But since it happened to Mr. Vice President of the You are Either With us or Against us States, it just seems, well, ironic.
Jay Leno tore into Cheney, as was natural. Sample Leno’s gem: “I think Cheney is starting to lose it. After he shot the guy he screamed, ‘Anyone else want to call domestic wire tapping illegal?”’
As did Dave Letterman, who smirked, “Good news, ladies and gentlemen, we have finally located weapons of mass destruction: It’s Dick Cheney.”
I rest my case. My sympathies, Mr. Cheney. Next time, look out for the old guys wearing the orange vests.
