What it really said:
Cheney, victim lacked proper hunting stamp
By JAMES PINKERTON and JULIE MASONCopyright 2006 Houston Chronicle

"CORPUS CHRISTI: Vice President Dick Cheney and Austin lawyer Harry Whittington, the Austin lawyer he wounded in a weekend hunting accident, did not have the proper stamp on their hunting licenses to shoot quail, according to a Texas Parks and Wildlife report released today.

"This afternoon Cheney sent a $7 check to the TPWD to pay for the upland game bird stamp, according to the vice-president's press office."

But then, I suppose the V. P. is above the law, Himself being the law.

Remark 1: I do regret not getting to see the Dave Letterman monologue tonight. It must have had the real low down, dirt and all!

Remark 2: I do not intend to get very political here. I would have said the same name for Kerry's V.P., old "what's his name." Your comments are welcome, I really did mean it when I said the blog wasn't intended to be political.

Remark 3: See Lopez at Large.

I Shot The Sheriff Lyrics
(I shot the sheriff
But I didn't shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
I shot the sheriff
But I didn't shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.)
Yeah! All around in my home town,
They're tryin' to track me down;
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy,
For the life of a deputy.
But I say:
Oh, now, now. Oh!
(I shot the sheriff.) - the sheriff.
(But I swear it was in selfdefence.)
Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh)
Yeah!I say: I shot the sheriff - Oh, Lord! -
(And they say it is a capital offence.)Yeah!
(Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
For what, I don't know:
Every time I plant a seed,
He said kill it before it grow -
He said kill them before they grow.
And so:
Read it in the news:
(I shot the sheriff.) Oh, Lord!
(But I swear it was in self-defence.)
Where was the deputy? (Oo-oo-oh)
I say: I shot the sheriff,
But I swear it was in selfdefence. (Oo-oh) Yeah!
Freedom came my way one day
And I started out of town, yeah!
All of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down,
So I shot - I shot - I shot him down and I say:
If I am guilty I will pay.
(I shot the sheriff,)
But I say (But I didn't shoot no deputy),
I didn't shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
(I shot the sheriff.) I did!
But I didn't shoot no deputy. Oh! (Oo-oo-ooh)
Reflexes had got the better of me
And what is to be must be:
Every day the bucket a-go a well,
One day the bottom a-go drop out,
One day the bottom a-go drop out.
I say:
I - I - I - I shot the sheriff.
Lord, I didn't shot the deputy. Yeah!
I - I (shot the sheriff) -
But I didn't shoot no deputy, yeah! No, yeah!

Of all the occupations, he had to shoot a lawyer!
I heard about this on the internet and thought no more of it. I knew the press would have a field day with this one though, and draw it all out of proportion, as they do everything!

BTW, Happy Valentine's Day!
