Wild Kingdom

Nope, it's just never enough. There's simply no end to the Cheney jokes. The wonderful Driftglass, from whom I nicked the picture, has just one more that starts like this:

A Cheney walks into a ranch.
He orders a couple of shots of Jack, drinks ‘em, then pulls a shotgun and proceeds to shoot his friend in the face...
Heh, I know you're chuckling already, but you'll have to click through for the punchline.

After that, I recommend swinging by Blogenlust to see if you can Pick the Joke!

And in what ought to be less funny news, but isn't, because I've become completely inured to shock at anything having to do with this administration anymore, Paul the Spud, by way of Dependable Renegade, passes along this little gem buried in a Newsweek article:
Back at Cheney's lodgings at the ranch--guest quarters called Uncle Tom's House--there was no discussion of a public statement.
That, my friends, utterly defies my capacity for outrage and sends me right around the bend to laughsobbing.
