I have been loathe to address the assinine behaviour of the White House and what it claims passes for an "administration" in the ridiculous debacle that continues to be Dick Cheney's life. Though the shooting was accidental, the fallout likely was not and it had exactly the effect that Cernig was lamenting: the entire week has been consumed by the stupidity and arrogance of Cheney, Bush and the rest of the White House munchkins, as the media fritters away its energies on the minutiae of hunting etiquette while France is declaring that Iran has nukes! Now, normally when we're talking about the stupidity and arrogance of the Bush administration, it is usually about significantly more serious stuff.

But forget that, Cheney shot some guy. In the face.

Hey, that was fun. Let's keep saying that over and over and over.

It is starting to look like the French were really stung by the obviously effective "freedom fries" taunting, because while Washington is consummed with the minute-by-minute details of Cheney's weekend, the French are now taking up the US casus belli of proclaiming to the world what a terrible, terrible threat Iran is.

Anyway, while I will choose to avoid delving into the charade by which Dick Cheney comports himself publicly, Anthony Wade has the goods on the new, new 'gate.
