Normally, I’d take the opportunity to make some kind of smart-ass comment about the fact—yes, people, fact—that Dick Cheney shot a man in the face over the weekend. In this case, however, Wonkette has already said all there is to say.
Oooh, boo hoo, Dick Cheney’s mean and scary and irresponsible. Ohhh, he didn’t follow standard hunting safety rules, ooohh, it was an avoidable accident. You know what we say? Be a fucking man, America. This is awesome.
Go read the whole thing over there.
In other so-called news, Saddam Hussein makes a scene in court, again (according to the BBC, he interrupted his own chants of “Down with Bush!” to tell the judge, “Exercise your right to try me in absentia. Are you trying to overcome your own smallness?”) and Iran’s largest-selling newspaper is holding an international contest of cartoons about the Holocaust. That should bring the whole political cartoon debacle to a swift and reasonable resolution.
I suggest you play hooky from the news this morning and go read Pork Tornado instead. Today’s post is so funny you might pee yourself laughing. Not that I did or anything.
