From Mike Thompson, who titled the cartoon "Shootin' fish in a barrel." Which, if Cheney were doing it, he'd probably "pepper" somebody else.
I wonder what would have happened if Whittington had been as drunk as Cheney and had "peppered" the Veep from the Deep instead. Do you think Whittington could have fled the scene the next day without being questioned by police or the Secret Service? Would the press have treated Cheney being in intensive care as just a minor incident?
BTW, CBS has a summary of last night's jokes from Letterman, Leno, Jon Stewart and Craig Ferguson.
WIIIAI suggests that the explosions coming from the vice-presidential mansion a few years ago were for installing underground freezers to hold the bodies of Cheney's (direct) victims.
And apparently Cheney didn't have all the required permits for hunting quail--or lawyers.
