Dick Cheney’s Top 10 Excuses For Shooting Fellow Hunter...
From the home office in blue-state New York, here’s Vice President Dick Cheney’s top 10 excuses for shooting fellow hunter Harry Whittington on Saturday:


10. Sick and tired of Whittington’s “Hey, I’m having a heart attack” jokes

9. Pushed over edge by Dixie Chicks and Streisand blasting on pick-up truck stereo

8. Ongoing dispute over whether it’s acceptable to torture quail before shooting them

7. Thought he saw Michael Moore on other side of tree line

6. Bombed out of his gourd on Wild Turkey and Lone Star Beer

5. Companion’s ill-advised decision to wear Moveon.org sweatshirt

4. Was trying to impress Jodie Foster

3. Whittington’s repeated ribbing that Bush is actually the “real president”

2. Targeting scope on rifle made by Halliburton

And the number one excuse given by Dick Cheney for almost blowing away hunting companion Harry Whittington…

1. Because he’s a wartime vice president, damn it!

You have some good suggestions about Cheney's errant(?) buckshot!

What happened with Dick Cheney sounds like something right out of National Lampoons Vacation.

cannot stop laughing about Chaney and his gun-shooting incident. Someone told me the guy that he sprayed with buckshot (really I know it is not funny - just can't help myself) is not only a Republican, a lawyer, but also a lobbyist. And where were Chaney's security people....probably hiding behind the outhouse, hoping he wouldn't shoot their way.

Karen said...

LOL Maria!

You got that right!!
