Just a Little Reminder, and a Speculation

The Vice President of the United States shot a 78-year-old man in the face. With a shotgun.

Damn. That's the sort of thing that usually only goes on on The Sopranos.

Bob Harris has a list of things we've learned recently, and it's worth a look.

I had a thought about all of this. Cheney just shot a titular friend and big-ass donor in the face. He has issued no personal statement, hasn't apologized, hasn't accepted responsibility, nothing. If Cheney knew about street shit, I'd say that he was sending a strong message to "Scooter" Libby, who apparently just told his grand jury that Cheney and other superiors told him to leak Valerie Plame's name to the press. That message? This is what I did to a friend. No remorse, no nothing. What do you think I'll do to you and your family?

But Cheney probably doesn't know anything about the street. Probably.
