Additional Cheney Update

February 14th, 2006

Turns out Cheney did not, after all, have a proper hunting license, contrary to White House claims. He had a license, but he did not get the necessary certification to hunt “upland game birds” such as quail. He’ll be given a “warning citation” for the infraction.

No word in the press if he had bought the necessary stamp for hunting Republican donors.

Update to the update: Cheney has been cleared of “wrongdoing” by law enforcement. Big surprise. Can you imagine what would have happened if it was some regular Joe Schmoe who went hunting without the correct license and then ignored basic safety rules and shot his buddy in the face? You think he would have been cleared of “wrongdoing” without so much as a small fine? Hell, I bet they won’t even make him pay the $7 upland game bird stamp retroactively. The arrogance of these Bush people is amazing, in how they apparently deeply believe that the rules just don’t apply to them–an arrogance which is only upheld by the fact that they can indeed get away with it.

    Geez, complaining about his license now seems so petty after what transpired, doesn’t it?

    If the poor guy dies, adjust your argument for criminal negligence. He can keep his seven bucks, as far as I’m concerned. But will Cheney be charged with negligence like an ordinary citizen would?
