Newscoma’s post lacks only a witty title. I propose the above gem from Irving Berlin. I know it’s tacky to reprint someone’s whole post, but I’m going to make an exception in this case.
How funny is this?
Vice-president Dick Cheney is really having a bad day, but no worse than the guy he accidentally shot.
Gun nuts, what’s the proper etiquette in a situation like this? Does the guy who got shot now get a free shot at the vice president? Have we had a vice president shoot anyone since Burr shot Hamilton? Is this what you conservatives mean by a return to traditional American values–bringing back the fine tradition of vice presidents shooting people?
If so, this must be an especially proud moment for you.
