Dick Hunting

The wealth of delightful material assembled since word of our Vice President's unfortunate hunting experience is a testament to our nation's cultural resourcefulness. The sun may be setting on our empire, but the clouds are tinged with sublime color. My favorite response, predictably, was from The Daily Show:
The shooting was fertile ground for Jon Stewart, the host of "The Daily Show," the popular fake news program on Comedy Central. On Monday night one of the show's correspondents, Rob Corddry, introduced as a "vice-presidential firearms mishap analyst," said that "according to the best intelligence available, there were quail hidden in the brush," and "everyone believed there were quail in the brush," and "while the quail turned out to be a 78-year-old man, even knowing that today, Mr. Cheney insists he would still have shot Mr. Whittington in the face."
I'm so proud today to be an American, where the right to bare arms and start wrestling is a cornerstone of our super-sized portion of freedom.
