Having sworn I would not take my eye off all the other things going on in the news that are being covered-up by the Cheney shooting incident....I got this joke from an old friend and adapted it for mass consumption.
Vice Presidential weapons technology sure has gotten high tech in recent years. Why, in Gerald Ford's day, the Vice President could only bean his friends with golf balls. And he had to wait until he ascended to the Presidency to do it! Cheney has access to immediate gratification, and to bird shot. Much more effective.
I dare not imagine what the next Vice President will have access to!

For the past hour, "The Ed Schultz Show" has been discussing Cheney non-stop. Which means Big Eddie has lost an hour that could have been spent analyzing the Hurricane Katrina response report. I really do appreciate Ed. But it was hour two before a caller managed to get him off the topic of Cheney-quiddick or Shotgunica-gate or whatever you want to call it.
Vigilance, people. Vigilance!
