Dick Cheney needs to replace hunting with golf
Vice-President Dick Cheney has always promised he’d shoot straight with the American people. He just didn’t tell us it would be one at a time.
Cheney needs to replace his hunting hobby with golf. Golf clubs aren’t loaded, and it’s more humane to bring down a lawyer with a 5-iron than a shotgun.
More Republicans play golf, although it’s true that lobbyists and energy insiders can be publicly identified easier on the golf course than they can in a duck blind.
Golf isn’t nearly as violent as hunting, unless you try to photograph Tiger Woods without his caddie’s permission.
I ask you: who is more fun to torture: a duck or a guy who’s winning money off you on the golf course?
In golf, you can cherry-pick the intelligence you get from your caddie without starting global conflicts.
Just think about this, Dick: The press is easy to avoid on the golf course; most reporters can’t pass the dress code, nor do they get preferred tee times.
You make a mistake in golf, you make a bogey. Big deal, join the crowd. You make a mistake in hunting, you critically wound an elderly lawyer and make yourself the national butt of every joke imaginable.

The guy just had a heart attack. I hope you're proud of yourself making fun of the poor, cherubic, quasi-octagenarian hunter/businessman guy.
Though I admire you for your willingness to poke fun at both hunters and republicans, two groups notorious for having the sense of humor of forks.
The Cheney story is interesting, however. If only the guy he shot would just get trapped down a mine shaft, newspaper editors across the land would have the perfect storm of headlines.
"Man trapped in mine following heart attack after being shot by Vice-President"
Yeah. That's gold, baby.
YAWN! You need to throw in a missing beautiful blonde teenager girl.
Just so you know, conservatives have far better senses of humor than liberals could ever hope to. Ever hear of Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage? Just try and find a liberal host who could match the latter's wit.
You really have some askew priorities if you think this is a major story. Cheney apologized profusely to Whittington -- he doesn't owe YOU an apology. Are you insane?
The mistake he made caused injury to one man; it would be ridiculous to apologize to the nation. What we should be talking about is Al Gore's treason, where he went to Saudi Arabia and impugned his own nation with distortions during a time of war.
By the way, you've never listened to Michael Savage, dumbell.
And Nero was a hell of a fiddle player.
Are you DRUNK? The guy he hit was 78. A 78-year-old man could die from getting hit in the face with a stiff wind! You think he ended up in intensive care for an unrelated hangnail?
BTW, check out the thoughts of Paul Begala, a 30-year hunter, where he writes "it sounds to me like Cheney was not being safe." Interesting.
You have GOT to be kidding me!
Rush Limbaugh is a fatbag blowhard/drug addict funny only to Nazis because of his racist/sexist statements. Don't know Savage, nor do I care to, but I'll bet he's in the same vein. Yeah, those Republicans are laugh riots...
Try John Stewart, Bill Maher, Al Franken, Jeanne Garofolo, I could go on and on.
Hey, I'm not saying it wasn't an accident. I don't think anyone is. But I do agree with this blogger McDonald that Deadeye Dick should not be allowed to hunt any more. Too unsafe. BTW, God help anyone hit so hard with lead pellets that one is able to "migrate" to his HEART.
Bravo. These moronic liberals know as much about guns as Slick Willie does about fidelity. I even heard that someone on CNN (I believe) called the shot "the bullets it was loaded with." Leave it to a liberal to comment on something he knows nothing about.
Hey, Tim M, you columnist wannabe you, what "racist/sexist statements" has Limbaugh made? Can you provide one? And you haven't listened to Savage but you know exactly what his nature is. You know what you are? You're a typical two-bit, hypocritical, two-brain-cell leftist. What ever happened to tolerance and non-judgementalism? Ohh, I remember now, those are "virtues" that others are supposed to practice so that your twisted values can hold sway.
Listen, Tim, stick to golf, something you at least have a modicum of knowledge about.
Anyway, there is something here from which I derive great pleasure. You have political beliefs. I have political beliefs. You are passionate (God knows why). I am passionate. But there's one BIG difference. I am getting paid to write about mine. You, on the other hand, will languish here on these golf boards influencing that huge group of people that will frequent your blog and take a golf blogger's political musings seriously. LOLOLOLOL
what the hell does Ted K. have to do with anything!? I keep seeing rightwingers reference that as if they're being clever. Ahh, nothing like "humor" straight off the speaking points.
For what it's worth, I wish Deadeye Dick would take both Ted AND W. hunting next time.
By the way, Teddy K.'s record is not open to open to scrutiny "because he's a virulent critic of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield and Rice" ..... his record is open to scrutiny because he's a U.S. Senator and a very public figure. Same goes with W., Deadeye Dick, Herr Rumsfeld, Condy, Delay, Daschle, Pelosi and on and on and on. That's what freedom of speech is all about.
No one living in a free country needs a reason to scrutinize govt. officials -- or even to mock them. And frankly, I wish we'd all do more of it. Fox News, for instance, has done a great job in building a tremendous following. Oh how much better off the country would be if they would use that clout to truly scrutinize ALL those in power, rather than gladhanding and whitewashing everything done by the side they like. Now, if you want to claim CNN is worse, fine. I wish THEY'D scrutinize public figures a lot more too! I agreed 100% with Bill Maher when he said: "I truly believe that the problem in this country is not that we're too cynical; it's that we're too naive, too stupid, too willing to swallow the same old crap."
Remember how Clinton was accused of everything from murder to real estate scandals?
I wonder what you have to say about the Bush family's long-standing ties to the royal family of Saudi Arabia.
Get rid of our dependence on Mideast oil? Yeah, that'll happen under Bush's watch. He doesn't just make billions for Big Oil, he IS Big Oil.

"that dumbbell Bush, a guy who isn't smart enough to come in out of the rain, managed to steal two Presidential elections, and not leave any evidence."
Part of the answer lies in your question. Bush is, indeed, intellectually challenged. He's as inept a president as he was a businessman. He talks like a backwoods, Texas hick, which he is, only with money. If it wasn't for his daddy's money, backed by the GOP machine, he'd be operating a laundromat somewhere along the Tex-Mex border.
As for evidence, it's hardly left uncovered. I give you the U.S. Supreme Court sellout, Katherine Harris' sneaky machinations, the Republican dirty tricks machine and any number of others.
By the way John, it's probably wise not to give your last name. Republicans love to operate in secret.
Yeah, you're a winner all right. You ever notice that people, mostly teenagers, who separate others as "winners" and "losers" are usually those who end up as interstate snipers or alone in their bedrooms on Friday night, reading Mein Kampf?
Ol' McDonald had a degree, ee-i-ee-i-o! You know, Timmy, you really are a great intellect, aren't you? You simply dismiss anyone to the right of Mao Tse-Tung as a "Nazi," which makes it easy. That way you don't have to think, and you'll never have to question your emotion-based, leftist orthodoxy.
Timmy, you can talk about Bush, but between the ears, you're as bush-league as they come.
True enough. "Incident" was a lousy word choice on my part. However, the point being made was that it's completely unrelated to Deadeye Dick shooting a man in the head, so why do you people bring it up? Why not bring up the Teapot Dome Scandal or Nixon's Committee to Reelect the President!?
There's no way this should even be a political debate. I, mean all McDonald did was make a few jokes at the expense of a public figure who'd just made a total ass of himself but filling a pal full of lead. No different than making fun of Gerald Ford for shanking a golf ball into the gallery and tagging a spectator. Deadeye Dick, a very public figure, stumbled badly. Tim poked a little fun at him. So did 98% of the known world. Did you see the headlines in the UK papers!? Hilarious.
You know, I have to laugh at these delusional commie-libs. They throw the most jagged stones imaginable, then they turn around and ask why we're taking satire so seriously and are becoming so disagreeable.
I'll give Tiny-brain Tim credit: his little piece was funny. And, in all fairness, some good natured ribbing is in order when you accidentally shoot a hunting partner. But TBT couldn't leave well enough alone. Of course, though, it's not surprising. Left-wingers are miserable people and, consequently, tend to be quite mean.
Ah, at last we're in agreement about something.
Tiny-brain Tim Needs to Replace Writing With Hunting.
I admire his spunk and spicy attitude. I do. He looks them right-wing hate mongers in the eye and says — bring it on. I'm a Vietnam veteran with a bad golf game and worse complexion. I'm tired of watching people cow-tail to the unholy triumvirate of Cheney, Bush and Rumsfeld.
Power to the People. And right on, Tim McDonald.
I'm sick and tired of these right-wing bully-boys, too...
