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.
I have started a Best Of comments about the MSM's desperate attempt to capitalize on this non-event. So far, we have:
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."

3. "But if it were up to Dick Cheney, he wouldn't tell us if our shirts were on fire, for heaven's sake."
Do they need someone to tell them their shirts are on fire?

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.
Was it Super Hero Kerry, #1 hero from Viet Nam, who shot the Vietnamese guy IN THE BACK?
No offense to anyone...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!
And MSM never challenging HIS safety procedure knowledge - as he was walked (like an idiot) with gun pointed down. . .
Those are great, please add algore's? pic- looking down the barrel.
Just for the record, I'd piss on them, but not on the fire.
Kewl! I made number 3!
You forgot AlGore staring down the barrel of a rifle.
Those are great.
Attorney and old buddy, Whittington, sitting up and joking in his hospital bed said to the nurse, "No big deal, this was just Dick's first attempt at tort reform."
Another one for your collection:
"Would it have been more serious if somebody was killed?"
Ah ay'nt never bin huntin' with no ushi!
