Dick Cheney Makes Me Laugh

Dick Cheney, second in charge of the world's most powerful nation and only true superpower, makes me laugh. I've been laughing for a few days now after hearing about his shooting accident whilst out hunting.

And what would the second most powerful man in the world be hunting you ask. Bears? No. Moose? No. Bison? No. Oil? No, that was in his younger days. Dick Cheney was hunting for quail. Obviously he didn't have time to go to Africa and take part in a real safari hunting expedition. Yes, he's taking on the mighty quail.

What a man. What a strong man. How brave can he be? Mind you, with the heart problems that he has I guess he shouldn't take on any beast that is a bit wilder than the vicious quail. They are known for being vicious, aren't they?

Well I heard that the reason he shot him was becasue he thought he was a terrorist. He said later that that belief was based on fautly intelligence.

Apparently he shot him from 30 yards away. The Allies in Iraq need a man with such bravery and accuracy.

A shot gun would only be of use in hand to hand combat, right? It doesn't shoot that far. Atchison's cartoon today. George Dubya is on stage and says, 'I will now unveil our new secret weapon. which will strike fear into the hearts of friends and foes alike.' Dick Cheyney is just off stage carrying a shot gun. The little dog says, 'They'll quail at the sight of him'.
