Dick and Brick

News Item: Vice President Cheney Shoots Fellow Hunter in Mishap on a Texas Ranch.

For some reason, I feel like the ensuing discussion in the Oval Office must have been reminiscent of "Anchorman":

George W. Bush: Boy, that escalated quickly... I mean, that really got out of hand fast!
Donald Rumsfeld: It jumped up a notch!
George W. Bush: It did, didn't it?
Dick Cheney: Yeah, I stabbed a man in the heart!
George W. Bush: I saw that! Dick killed a guy! Did you throw a trident?
Dick Cheney: Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident!
George W. Bush: Dick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.
UPDATE: In Aaron Burr's Wikipedia profile:
"In 2006, Richard Cheney, while on a hunting trip in Texas, became the second Vice President to shoot a person while in office."

The Cheney shooting story made me think of the classic case every 1st year law student reads called Summers v. Tice. Of special note to this blog: the defendant's name was Tice.

It annoys me that the MSM is jumping all over the "Why didn't you tell us about this earlier?"

I mean, it takes a while to develop the spin on something this stupid.

When you get a chance, look at the Wilkipedia entry on Al Gore. Apparently, it's been hijacked!!
