Some Unanswered Cheney Hunting Accident Questions

This blog entry at Democratic Underground summarizes the unasked (by our curiously incurious corporate media) and unanswered questions fairly succinctly.

As a side note the fact that Cheney had in his earlier years been busted twice for drinking and driving hadn't previously blipped on my radar. A little fact checking turned up this.

Oh Oh.

More Abu Ghraib abuse photos have been made public. Some are quite graphic and remind me of photos I've seen from Auschwitz.

I added Stickam to the sidebar. Looks very promising.

This is TOO funny!

Headline from local newspaper:

"Cheney hunting trip goes awry

followed by this:

"Millionaire attorney Harry Whittington is 'doing fine and in good spirits' after Vice President Dick Cheney fires too close to his buddy while tracking a bird." - Tacoma News Tribune

Oh my. Fires too close. Oh geez. Now that IS rich. Pardon me while I pick the pellets out of my face. Next time don't fire so might actually miss.

Cheney Guns Down Fellow Hunter.

What surprises me most about this "accident" is that it doesn't surprise me at all. Who authorized live ammo for Darth anyhow?

Note to self: Pick your spin?
1) Cheney Accidentally Shoots Fellow Hunter.
2) Cheney Shoots Fellow Hunter.
3) Cheney Guns Down Fellow Republican.

Sudoku At Dawn

Yesterday I discovered sudoku's elegantly simple rules. Over at WebSudoku I soon also discovered simple rules do NOT necessarily equal simple solutions. In fact I found my brain bent almost to the breaking point in directions it hasn't gone in ages. All those long nights keeping beer company may have dulled my logical facilities. Beer is indeed a harsh mistress.

This strategy page may help...but right now it's as hard to decipher as a seduko puzzle itself.

The Abramoff / Libbygate scandal

has morphed into the Cheney/Bushgate scandal. The evidence now supports the logic. It's certainly not a huge mental leap to think Libby was following orders or that Bush knows one of his prime financial supporters (and probably quite well). Now we know. What fascinates me is that from the day these gates and scandals broke it should have been obvious to any and all the corruption and sleaze flows from the top down.
