Cheney's Got a Gun

rwcole: "A little known Texas law allows the president and the vice president to declare anyone or anything a 'quail for the purposes of a legitimate sporting hunt- bag limit three."

Five deferments later, Cheney is obviously only interested in shooting tiny little birds who can't shoot back.

The the crazy ol geezer was no doubt half in the bag. Wonder if they did a breathalizer test?

Comstockian version: "Cheney bravely battles avian flu."

Update: Bob Geiger has " Dick Cheney's Top 10 Excuses For Shooting Fellow Hunter." I'm partial to #3 myself.
