The sheer silliness of this whole thing is blowing me away (probably a poor choice of words!) I know quite well how to handle a shotgun, how accidents happen, and how terribly excited non-shooting liberals are about this accident. In a "lighter" note (and if there was EVER a 'light in the loafers" it's Ron Reagan...Mr. TuTu himself), THE Ronald Reagan, gentleman, horse lover, and shooter, must be rolling in his grave.
I am adding another FR comment to my BEST OF:
1. Best comment I've read...from another FR thread:
"Miss Kopechne could not be reached for comment"

2. LOL. How bout these lines for Cheney's next press corps dinner speech;
"Ted Kennedy and I are going hunting this weekend. He's driving and I'm riding shotgun."
"I took my wife hunting with me. She was scared out of her wits but decided to stay after Teddy offered to drive her home."

And...lest we forget...John Kerry, #1 hero from Viet Nam, pictured with a dead Canada goose in one hand and his shotgun in the other. Why, oh why, do these violent men have to KILL things?
It's my guess the Vietnamese guy Kerry shot IN THE BACK and was on the receiving end of a heavy-duty rifle sure wished it hadn't happened, either.
No offense...just the irrationality of the current MSM and the glee they seem to be finding in this whole thing. I'm amazed that most of them can even read their scripts...much less find toilet paper to wipe...AH! never mind!
Didn't find a hint of offense anywhere . . . so, I guess none can be taken. :-)
But watching Scott McClellan's press briefing via the cable was a hoot.
You woulda thought Cheney did something really horrible, like slander the country in a speech to the Jiddah Economic Forum. Not so surprising, Al Gore's name and words did not evoke so much as a whisper from the press corps.
