Drinking and hunting doesn't mix I don't care how little you've consumed!

I hunted a lot when I was younger and I mean a lot. I hunted
a lot of different animals, byself and with hunting partys.
Never once did we find it necessary to drink while we were
hunting, not even when we had hunt club end of season
cookouts. What is wrong with society that they think drinking
is just part of the scene no matter what scene it may be?
These are the leaders of our great nation and they're suppose
to be devoted christians and role models. Boy was this great
nation of ours lead astray.

Supposedly only had one beer at lunch, not while hunting.

He's still a POS, IMHO.

When hunting a can spotted dog(Potted Meat) or a hunk of
cheese, crackers and a Pepsi was always good enough for me,
maybe some hot chocolate to warm me up. Dad usually went to
the Sardines, I never could deal with them.

Is having one beer at lunch really what you would call "drinking and hunting"? I can't stand Cheney, but carping about the beer makes it look like a vendetta and trivializes any legitimate questions that are being asked.

Yep, I agree. Gotta let Bwana, the brave hunter, have this one.

But we can rest assured that with his disdain for the media and maybe the little guy as well, it won't be long before he gives everyone plenty more ammunition.

I agree that having a beer at lunch is no big deal.

I am not a drinker - maybe 3-4 drinks in a month, and I have nothing but contempt for Cheney, but as posted above, harping about it only helping to draw attention away from the more serious goings on wthin the administration.

i bet it was more than one. pleading guilty to a lesser crime, i think many of us have done it.

At this point he's basically the bionic Veep. I mean, why is he even still alive? If he had the same level of health insurance that most americans have, he'd be gone by now. He's only being held together by chewing gum and duct tape at this point anyway. Maybe he's even roboveep. I don't know.

And we foot the bill for his entourage of doctors that have to follow him around 24/7 besides the regular circus of security/ aids/ beer gofers etc..

If you accidentally shot your friend - WHY WOULD YOU NOT GO WITH HIM (or drive immediately) TO THE HOSPITAL?????

Might it be a fear that police might arrive at said hospital at some point to take a statement? BTW - hospitals have all sorts of equipment to check blood/alcohol content, don't they? Hmmmm.

For what other reason would he go back and have dinner at the ranch while his friend lie bleeding in the ER? Could it be that he is King of All @#$%&? Silly question of course - we all know this to be true. But even the KoAA would want to be there to make sure the guy doesn't DIE - DON'T YOU THINK???

Meanwhile back at the raunch, important issues, like PATRIOT Act reductions in civil liberties being made permanent, treasonous betrayals of NOC CIA agents (which destroyed vital WMD surveillance and intelligence operations and probably cost lives of overseas contacts), and illegal wiretapping (an impeachable criminal offense) get wiped off the front pages and consciousness of Americans to die in the tall grass of the public's short attention span.

The whole hunting accident brouhaha is manna from heaven for the Bushis. Their evangelical base will slough this off as "taking a little wine for thy stomach's sake" and begin prayer vigils for the grieving, repentant Vice P. Cheney will become the NRA's poster boy for "Safe Hunting" education. His love of hunting will only endear him to them.

The importance of always being aware of what's in hunters sights will become a national campaign, and meanwhile the war on Iraq and personal liberty continues, out of our sights, & out of our minds.

You're buyin' the one beer thing? Hmmm

I think the thing is that Cheney will be remembered FOREVER as the Veep who tagged his friend with a shotgun. Pretty unusual for a Vice President.

And yes, we know about the other stuff.

Cheney is no doubt on lots of heart meds that would make excessive imbibing risky. Always willing to risk others lives he's been very cautious with his own.

Regardless, the issue of whether he was roaring drunk or not doesn't really concern me. The man is a loose cannon even when sober, as Sen. Leahy found, and I really don't care how many Republican lawyers Dick shoots. I'll buy the tags for him.

And whenever the shooting incident is brought up the Repubs will respond with "Ted Kennedy killed more people with his car than Dick did with his shotgun," further endearing him to the NRA. I just wish the press would get over it and quit spending valuable news time on such a non-issue. It's not like GOP lawyers are an endangered species.

Not if you know your history. And the likelyhood of Cheney being remembered forever only applies to the families he's enriched through the next two or three generations.

By then, even the descendents will have forgotten the source of the wealth that allows them to survive temporarily in the face of massive global weather changes.

I like how the media covers this as a non-issue (which for the most part it really is) yet they are all over the Entwistle guy as if it's cause for alarm on the scale of national security.

Yes. He had a drink and then went hunting. What else do you need?

Responsible hunters will tell you that the time for taking responsibility for hunting mishaps is before you go hunting. You don't drink and go hunting. End of story.

In addition, you take the proper training and get the proper licenses and endorsements. BEFORE you go hunting. And if there's an accident, you report it to the authorities and let THEM determine what questions need to be asked IMMEDIATELY, not 14 hours later.

But Cheney, being above the law, doesn't need to bother with that. Would any of us be granted the same privilege?
