"Rumors are that the reason Dick Cheney didn't say anything about the hunting accident for about 24 hours was because he had been drinking. And I'm thinking, well jeez, he was probably drinking when we planned the invasion of Iraq." --David Letterman

The Velvet Glove Treatment


When did Cheney first speak to local authorities? The New York Times was told that a deputy sheriff interviewed Cheney on Saturday night. The Associated Press was told a deputy sheriff showed up at the ranch that night, only to be turned away after learning that Cheney would be available Sunday.

If Cheney is taking full responsibility for the shooting, why did several people at the scene — Armstrong and Ambassador Pamela Willeford — put out early word that Whittington was at fault? If Cheney believed he deserved the blame, what did those women see that led them to conclude otherwise?

Ann Coulter's  Voting Irregularities



A Palm Beach poll worker says he tried to help GOP-loving pundit Ann Coulter vote in the right precinct last week. But, Jim Whited says, Coulter dashed out of the polling place when he told her she needed to file a change of address...county elections records show Coulter gave an address in June at the northern tip of the island, on Indian Road, when she registered...

But the owner of the Indian Road home where Coulter is registered, Realtor Susanne Frisbie, told Page Two this week that Coulter never lived there. Frisbie was Coulter's real estate agent and allowed her to forward mail there.

Republican Shenanigans


"A mere five days after shooting a man in the face, Vice President Dick Cheney broke his silence about the incident by submitting to a no-holds-barred grilling at a public press conference. I'm just kidding. ... Actually, he sat down with Brit Hume on Fox News for not some much a grilling -- more of a teat suckle." --Jon Stewart






Dirty Old Comptroller

Comptroller William Donald Schaefer was unapologetic yesterday after making suggestive comments to a young female aide to the governor during a meeting of the state Board of Public Works.



Faking Contrition Song Parody (Sing to "Waltzing Matilda")
By Madeleine Begun Kane

"Faking contrition.
Faking contrition.
Cheney feels bad that he shot his good friend.
If you don't buy his story, you're a lib'ral Democrat.
Leave him alone. This harassment must end.

Watch those right-wing pundits shouting on the TV tube,
Claiming that Cheney didn't do nothing wrong.
Don't expect them to challenge anything that Cheney does.
They'll do Dick's will for a smile or a song..."

“Here's my favorite part of this whole incident. After Cheney shot the guy, the police later showed up at the ranch where Cheney was staying and wanted to talk to him, but was told to come back the next morning.
