Cheney accident not unusual (But you know The New York Slimes

By REAVIS WORTHAM

"Ultimately, I am the guy who pulled the trigger and fired the round that hit Harry," said Vice President Dick Cheney.

-snip-
"It's bad, all right," I said. "But unfortunately it isn't uncommon for people to be hit while hunting quail or dove. Hunting is dangerous."

I hear Karl Rove came up under my buddy Donald Segretti in the frivolity of the tricks world:

Some observers contend that part of Rove’s success is based on his willingness to fight dirty. This tendency expressed itself early, in 1970, when the then-19-year-old Rove made off with sheets of letterhead from the office of Illinois Democrat Alan Dixon, which he then distributed at a campaign rally with the message “free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing” printed on them.

Rove reportedly owned up to the stunt many years later, saying: “I was nineteen and I got involved in a political prank, but I’m not sorry.”

The media asked Karl about that once and he said...

Nanna nanna nanna!

You've just got to respect a man like that!

Way better than just that...

Lucy Van Pelt works hard at being bossy, crabby and selfish. She is loud and yells a lot. Her smiles and motives are rarely pure. She's a know-it-all who dispenses advice whether you want it or not--and for Charlie Brown, there's a charge. She's a fussbudget, in the true sense of the word. She's a real grouch, with only one or two soft spots, and both of them may be Schroeder, who prefers Beethoven. As she sees it, hers is the only way. The absence of logic in her arguments holds a kind of shining lunacy. When it comes to compliments, Lucy only likes receiving them. If she's paying one--or even smiling--she's probably up to something devious.

"It's bad, all right," I said. "But unfortunately it isn't uncommon for people to be hit while hunting quail or dove. Hunting is dangerous."

Bull$#^^

Hunting and target shooting are some of the safest sports. Insurance premiums reflect it.

Idiotic comments like this were inevitable.

Cheny's companion made a mistake by not announcing himself.

But CHency was the guy who pulled the trigger and one of the primary rules of using a firearm is to be aware of your field of fire and be able to identify your target. Cheney made a mistake.

Having said that, it was a stupid, innocent error he'll always have to live with and his primary responsibility was to see to the safety of his friend - which he did. He ahd no responsibility to immediately inform the jackels, vultures and hyaenas in the White House Press Corps.

These anti-huntnig and anti-gun types are true ghouls - always waiting for some tragedy to advance thier perverted, distorted, anti-American disarmament agenda.

I agree with what you say, Zulu. 100% There are folks out there that want to take our guns, our booze, our cigars and cigarettes... But as long as we have our guns, they ain't going to kill all the fun in life!

Which is more likely to occur:

1. a hunting accident by the VP, or

2. the archaic media fabricate a story because it suits their predisposition?

1. has happened once in over 200 yrs and 2. happens every day in nearly every "newsroom" in the country.

I may have a good buzz on, but don't I seem to recall that Aaron Burr actually was hunting Alexander Hamilton...

Hummm... Yes, I think the dog was pointing at old Alex when Arron let fly...

A thousand years in this damned jar and I'm surrounded by idiots!

You're at least seeing double. I said once in over 200 years. If we count Burr/Hamilton that would be two ;-}

We get bootleg DVDs. First run stuff. For about three or four bucks. If it's in theaters in the U.S., we can get it here.

We have a couple of movie channels on our Orbit satellite, but it's way cooler to chill back and watch something you can't even get on a movie channel yet. ;-)

As for war movies? I hear enough shooting, explosions, helicopters and warplanes going over, see enough tanks and a wonderful variety of weaponry that when it's down time, I just want a good comedy or even a drippy chick flick. LOL

I just wanted to say that you've really captured the spirit, if not the essence, of Bender.

One thing they never clarified in the show, if a famous robot dies, do they still put their head in a jar? Or, just set it on the shelf?
