I was going to mention something about this weekend incident in which Dick Cheney accidentally capped some dude while hunting, and I was going to make the probably obvious joke about how Cheney must've really been on some kind of rampage if he was intending to shoot Quayle but got a different guy instead -- but first I thought, "You know, I better check to see if anyone else has made that joke already," and then I thought, "If anyone made it, it's Matt Lavine," so I went over to Basket Full of Puppies, and . . . sure enough, he already had. Bastard!
Still, I have to give Lavine props for wading into the FreeRepublic forums to gauge the nutcase right-winger reaction to the incident -- which is certainly more than I would've bothered to do -- which reveals that the Freepers managed to wait 65 entire posts before re-accusing Hillary Clinton of assassinating Vince Foster, 69 posts before fantasizing about George W. Bush shooting Cindy Sheehan . . . and 66 before the light bulb went on and someone made a Quayle joke. I'm telling you, six years of complete Republican control in Washington have made the Freepers complacent -- those guys are slipping.
