Studies In Comic Timing

Some blog posts come out at just the right time; on Thursday night, Liberal Larry came out with a story about "Bush's War On Seniors" over at BlameBush! Not two days later, Vice President Cheney shoots a 78 year old hunting partner.

Since the guy's OK, this should be a cause of lots of snarky merriment around the blogosphere. I'm sure that no one is so buried in their conspiracy theory centered world that they'd be able to come up with some deep dark conspiracy...

Update 2119 12 Feb: A Dick Cheney Duck Hunt "game"!

Update 0528 13 Feb: I was wrong... the conspiracy theories have started. My favorite were the threads in DU proving that Cheney, his victim, and host had previous business relationships -- as if proving the the VP hunted with friends was further proof of conspiracy.

Ima normally a supporter of the Veep, but shooting a quail over your partner is VERY VERY VERY VERY BAD. It's also the reason me and Hatfield (fuzz be upon him) usually hunted alone.

There's just too much here for the story not to become a running joke. Quail vs Quayle, tough ole' bird full of bird shot, the NRA. I'm sorry for any pain and suffering Mr. Whittington has to bear, but I can't help chuckling over the irony of that statement. It's kind of like watching someone fall on ice - you know it's not funny, but you can't help but laugh.
