Dick Cheney: Standing Up for Biblical Values

Accidentally shoot a man and try to cover it up? Heck, King David did worse.

But then, this is America -- where it's the victim of the vice president's gunplay that traditionally gets his picture on the 20 dollar bill.

As noted on the FireDogLake blog,

Just in case you were wondering, it's been FOUR days since the Vice
President of the United States shot a man in the face, neck and chest,
and still no public accounting and acceptance of responsibility from
him. Nada. Zip. Zero.

Still hiding behind Mary Matalin's and
Katherine Armstrong's skirts -- allowing them to take all the media
heat, along with Scotty McClellan, who faced another round of peppering
from a still-pissed press corps, who seem to be sick of being lied to
by this White House.

I suppose it shouldn't come as a surprise,
seeing that it is Dick Cheney and all...but still, what kind of message
is that sending to the kids in this country?

"Go ahead and shoot
your friends. Then blame them for getting in the way of the shot, and
have a female friend deal with the press for you so you can hide behind
her skirts and never have to accept any responsibility. Ever."
