First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with Harry Whittington and his family as he recovers in the hospital.
The White House Press Corps was in a tizzy yesterday over the fact that news of Cheney’s "hunting accident" was first disclosed to the local paper. The Late Night talk hosts certainly did not pull any punches. We can all sit here and "Monday-morning quarterback" or "play the blame game" as the White House likes to day. Instead, we thought we’d put together the Survival Kit for Hunting with the Veep:
Bushnell Trophy Binoculars: so you can see your hunting partner when he’s 30 yards away wearing bright orange.
Mulholland Brothers Extra-Large Binocular Case: so you can fashionably store your binoculars that will be used to avoid shooting your hunting partner.
Xikar Xi 138 Excel Knife: for picking out birdshot from your face and chest.
And for Mr. Cheney, perhaps he should consider Bespoke Stationery with a hunting motif — perfect for a handwritten note of apology should an accident happen.
