Late nite television had quite a bit of fun with the Dick Cheney shooting.
So, for lack of dedicated writing material (i.e. it's the weekend and we're all lazy), we figured we'd take the time to share some of the highlights from the various comments.
"He is a lawyer and he got shot in the face. But he's a lawyer, he can use his other face. He'll be all right."
"You can understand why this lawyer fellow let his guard down, because if you're out hunting with a politician, you think, 'If I'm going to get it, it's going to be in the back."
"Apparently the reason they didn't release the information right away is they said we had to get the facts right. That's never stopped them in the past."
"Cheney also admitted that he'd been drinking. He said he had one beer. Okay, it was a 40-ounce Colt .45, but just one."
"Here's my favorite part of this whole incident. After Cheney shot the guy, the police later showed up at the ranch where Cheney was staying and wanted to talk to him, but was told to come back the next morning. And that's what they did, they came back the next morning. Kev, that ever happen in the hood?"
"See, this is why Republicans have to commit white collar crimes to steal money. They're just not good with guns, they don't know how to handle them."
"They were in a car, they drive along, they get out of the car, he shoots his friend in the face, then they get back in the car and they go hide for 18 hours. That’s not hunting ... that's an episode of 'The Sopranos'"
"President Bush says he is standing behind the vice president. Way behind him."
"And you know what's really scary about all of this -- what if it turns out all this time Bush was the smart one?"
"Until Democrats approve Medicare reform, we have to make some tough choices for the elderly."
"Rumors are that the reason Dick Cheney didn't say anything about the hunting accident for about 24 hours was because he had been drinking. And I'm thinking, well jeez, he was probably drinking when we planned the invasion of Iraq."
"If this story gets any bigger, pretty soon they're going to have to tell the president."
"But all kidding aside, and in fairness to Dick Cheney, every five years he has to shed innocent blood or he violates his deal with the devil."
"Cheney said he did have a beer during lunch. One beer, and the only reason he even drank it was to wash down the three hits of ecstasy."
"The man who was shot is named Harry Whittington. He's a high powered Republican lawyer, he was very lucky. They say the only reason that he wasn't killed is he was wearing the body armor that never got shipped to our troops."
Random but quotable
"He got faulty information on where the target was."
What song could be more appropo....
