Bush and Cheney in a Nutshell: Shoot First, Ask Questions Later

Aw, Shoot. So Dick Cheney put some birdshot in someone’s face accidentally this past weekend on an exclusive quail hunt for millionaires. Now, I eat meat myself, so I’m not about to go off on a rant about hunting. And people do make mistakes all the time, of course, so if this were anyone else we’d just drop it and sympathize for both parties involved. But for Dick Cheney, this is a material instance of a larger pattern. As Vice President, Dick Cheney’s policy has consistently been to Shoot First.

Add in George W. Bush, who would rather that the press, the citizenry, the courts and the congress Ask Questions Later, and you’ve got a humdinger of a conclusion:
