How glad am I that Dick Cheney accidentally shooting his friend with a 28-gauge shotgun full of buckshot has become front-page news? And how happy am I that the leading controversy of the day involves Mr. VP totally allowing the Corpus Christi local media to scoop the story of the incident without any regard for the Washington Press Corps' right to the story whatsoever? How glad?!
So, SO glad.
Because all the other stuff going on in the world-- the on-going worldwide Muslim riots and killing in reaction to a stinking cartoon, the election of the why-you-be-hatin' Hamas in Palestine, Iran's nuclear weapons development sitch, not to mention the criminal leaking of integral NSA secrets to the New York Times, Congress's namby-pambying around a threatening financial collapse of Social Security and Medicare, the Iraqi crisis, and duh!, the fact that President Bush and his goons are totally spying on me and probably reading this post right this very second-- well, it's all just such a downer, right? Who wants to hear about all that? Huh? Right?
But Quailgate? (Too hackneyed? How about "FriendlyFireGate"? Nah, too long...) Now THAT'S entertainment, I tell you what! But an important question I haven't heard answered is this: Did the quail survive? And if not, has PETA been notified? I'm just saying.
You know what I think? Thank God the mainstream American press has its priorities in order, that's what. Because truth be told? I was beginning to feel a little bummed out.

I couldn't agree with you more. I love the fact that the news media is more concerned about "Why Corpus Crisit news was told but not them"? I thought part of being a reporter was to dig up this info. To get the scoop. Know what I'm sayin'They get outscooped and want to blame it on the govt. Sheesh.
I will tell you it has made for some great Daily show and Letterman jokes.

"Until Democrats approve medicare reform, we have to make some tough choices for the elderly."--Letterman's Top Ten Cheney Excuses.
I told TGIM I want a bumper sticker that says: "I'd still rather hunt with Cheney than take a drive with Ted Kennedy." Because that? Would be AWESOME.

Speaking of Letterman, you should work for him. As a writer. FOR REAL.

I'm glad, too. Still...few of the Republicans I know will acknowledge any of the obvious flaws and faux pas found in Cheney/Bush/Rove. It's just one big Love In of Denial.
