Cheney's Example

If you haven't heard that Dick Cheney shot a man in the face by now, then you need to read a freaking newspaper or stop using the internet only for downloading porn and playing flash games. I know everyone has gotten a good laugh or two out of it already. I know I sure have. But what I find so amazing is that this is all being treated as a big joke. The White House is churning out one-liners about the situation. Cheney hasn't made any comments. The public or authorities (for all we know) weren't even alerted about what happened until a day later.

Now if it were some average, everyday schmuck that shot his hunting partner in the face, you know they'd be in lockdown, being questioned, and the victim would be attempting to probably get some type of compensation for getting buckshot in the kisser.

This whole thing makes me wonder if I could get away with "accidentally" shooting someone on a hunting trip. Cheney is setting quite the example. If you don't tell anyone about it, hide away in isolation, and really sell that it was only an accident (even when you have the rep of being as detestable as country music) you'll probably get away without anything happening... and the country will crack jokes about it!

So what's the best way to ask someone you absolutely hate on a hunting trip with you? I'm just curious...
