I'm just waiting for someone to say that the lawyer was "in season" and that there is "no limit."
I'm glad the victim was reprtedly not seriously injured, but man-oh-man the jokes that this incident will give rise to. Borowitz already has a column online "quoting" Cheney as saying the incident resulted from "faulty intelligence" and that Cheney believed he was shooting at a terrorist. Borowitz also "quotes" Bush as saying that the incident sends a message to terrorsits everywhere: "If Cheney will shoot an innocent American citizen at point-blank range, just think what he will do to you."
Cheney has reportedly said he will not run for office in 2008, but I have thought of the "phot-ops" that candidates often run during election years, showing themselves hunting so as to try to appeal for the votes of hunters--imagine the photo-op Cheney will now have!
By the way, I mean absolutely nothing "political" by this post and I don't want to violate this board's policy. I just find the story to be funny and I'm glad it is not tragic, as it could have been.
