An eyewitness to the Cheney quail-hunt speaks

The latest episode of SuperNews just posted on Current TV this weekend with a brief take on the Cheney quail-hunting incident.

It offers an as-yet-unheard perspective on the tragicomedy: what does the quail think of all this?

SuperNews is created by Josh Faure-Brac, and has aired on Current for just over six months. The short animated cartoon is a kind of mix between Mark Fiore and Doonesbury; politics with a comedic twist. Past episodes cover everything from global warming to Bush's illegal wiretap scandal.

And where else could you see the Iraqi Constitutional Congress re-imagined as a scene from "The Breakfast Club"?
