I Shot Marvin in the Face

All these great (which is to say, stupid) headlines about the Veep's Human Hunt keep popping into my head. So, let's open the floor to y'all. Why don't you chime in with your favorite idea for a headline down in the comments section. You know, like a contest. A contest where the first place prize is public acknowledgment of your superior wit. And before you get all weepy that we're making fun of some guy who was blasted by his robot hunting companion, try to remember that this man is Cheney's millionaire friend. Do you really think there's much chance that Dick Cheney has a non-evil friend?

I'll start you off with another – "Say Hello to my Little Friend!"

In the meantime, Talking Points Memo has complete coverage of the incident – It's a little weird that the White House tried to cover it up. (although not that weird) Hunters say that Cheney is squarely at fault despite Mary Matalin's claims to the contrary. Why are the V.P.'s press people saying it was no big deal, the guy getting shot in the face, despite the fact that he is still in intensive care?

So true... As they say, guns don't shoot people in the face. Vice-presidents with guns shoot people in the face.

How about Reform: Veep Treats Lawyer to Trip to ICU

Isn't it interesting that the White House is insisting that Cheney "peppered" or "sprayed" shotgun pellets? Was JFK "peppered" with rifle fire that day in Dallas? Was MLK "sprayed" by a sniper on that balcony?

I have a hunch that tomorrow the language is going to be even more Brokebackesque -- I hear that the administration will henceforth refer to the incident as the Veep "tea bagging" his hunting companion.

At least his daughter will be proud...
