Assimilated Press: Orwell, Texas - President Bush, acting on instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney, issued a top secret executive order on Monday revoking the American citizenship of Harry Whittington, the man Vice President Cheney shot in a hunting accident.

In a second related executive order President Bush then revoked Whittington's status as a human being and declared that, for official purposes, Whittington would now be declared a pheasant and as such would be a legally hunted game bird in the state of Texas. Upon leaving the hospital, Whittington will be banded and released in the wild.

When asked to comment on this extraordinary use of power, President Bush replied "I'm a war president. In order to protect the American people I need to be able to make a man into a game bird."

Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez added "The authority for the President to make a man into a bird is in the Constitution. It's the part written in invisible ink that can only be deciphered if you are wearing specially manufactured viewing glasses made by Diebold."

You know, this whole story is so STUPID, not even I am going to comment on it. I'm just going to let Liberal desperation speak for itself.

They were hunting quail, actually. But otherwise, that's pretty hilarious!

There is no story here. Cheney made a mistake, he accidentally shot somebody, the guy is doing good, there is no story.

Doing good by shooting somebody? :) No, really, the press are getting too worked up about this. It's actually pretty convenient for Cheney. The Scooter Libby investigation working higher into the VPs office, the media starts to get interested, and BLAM, ol' Dick accidentally shoots one of his millionaire buddies and the press is off after a new rabbit. Or quail.

Or, and Good Will, you obviously don't have to retract the story, I just thought I'd point out the error as nicely as I could before someone else took it as an escuse to mock you. Any error on a post is like blood in the water on ANY political debate board.

I know, I was joking :) I try to have a sense of humor :)

Uhh... I'll *assume* you're just making a light-hearted comment? You're usually pretty rational, Steven, so I doubt you're really suggesting that Cheney shot a guy on purpose to distract the media...

The only annoying thing about the whole shooting story is the long silence before it got found out. Personally I think its an accident. At the most fodder for some jokes.

>Uhh... I'll *assume* you're just making a light-hearted comment? You're usually pretty rational, Steven, so I doubt you're really suggesting that Cheney shot a guy on purpose to distract the media...

Well I must say publicity stunts have been known to happen. I am REALLY hoping, Cheney would NOT shoot a guy for that. I'll leave this one alone though.

Cool... we're in full agreement then. I think the long silence could well be simple shock and panic ("Oh, God, I shot him! Holy Shit! What do I do! If I tell someone I might be arrested!" Granted, fear of arrest is not a *legal* excuse for not reporting an accident, but I don't think you're considering your legal duties when you've just accidentally shot a friend.

Basically though, I agree with you. It's an accident, it's probably joke-worthy (since the guy is fine), and it *could* be a publicity stunt, but the chances are slim-to-none.

Grabs a magnifing glass and begins to search somehwere, ANYWHERE that everybody could be finding a story here. After a while, he gives up and sits back for the next cartoon, where there might be a story or even somethign to dicuss

Pete:
What story? I am pretty sure we are all in a agreement here. The original post was just a funny, non-PC story.
