Cheney Hunting For Office.

Via Fox News:

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney will spend Election Day Tuesday on his first hunting trip since he accidentally shot a companion last February while aiming at a covey of quail on a private Texas ranch.

The vice president, after working at the White House on Monday morning, will head to South Dakota to spend several days at a private hunting lodge near Pierre. Lea Anne McBride, his press secretary, said it was an annual hunting outing and said Cheney spent Election Day in 2002 at the same lodge.

You might think Cheney is attempting to get out of the limelight until the '06 election cycle is over by heading afield with his custom 28-gauge Perazzi shotgun, but it could be that he is instead laying the groundwork for his '08 Presidential campaign.

For some reason, Reid, Dean, and Pelosi declined the invitation to join Cheney on this trip.

I think Cheney is probably hunting (with) the board of directors of Diebold.

Cheney going off hunting is like a 100-year-old senile woman getting behind the wheel of a Cadillac. Anyone who gets in the way is probably going to end up in the hospital, or worse.
