Firing away at Cheney

Since I'm not near as witty as some of the more well-read bloggers talking about the whole Cheney fiasco, I give you this, and patiently wait for the many hard laughs I'm sure I'll savor watching Letterman tonight ...

The first shooting involving a vice president since the time of Aaron Burr has lit up the blogosphere with political jokesters lampooning Vice President Dick Cheney's weekend hunting accident as "Quailgate."

"You know who's doing a 'there but for the grace of God go I'? Scalia," wrote comedian Al Franken on his Web site, referring to Cheney's longtime duck-hunting friend, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

The Internet sprouted with offerings of "Dick Cheney hunts people" T-shirts and comments about calling the vice president "Deadeye Dick." There also was a version of the vice-presidential seal featuring a shotgun-wielding Elmer Fudd in hunting gear, with the inscription: "Be vewy vewy quiet, we're hunting I-wackies." (more)

... And while I'm looking at the best of today's cartoons, I couldn't help from posting this one too ...
