A New Vice Presidential Benefit

Apparently VPs are now allowed to shoot people. (Once is an exception, twice is policy -- granted the last one didn't work out so well.)

But the big brouhaha seems to be that Cheney's people didn't bother to tell the press until a day later, and then it wasn't even the Office of the VP, but the landowner calling her local paper. Why this should be surprising is lost on me. Cheney doesn't believe that the press has a right to know anything about what the Executive Branch does, nor Congress for that matter, and don't even bother asking about the average citizen. This latest incident is perfectly in character for big Dickie C, anyone who is surprised just hasn't been paying attention.
