Humane Society statement on Cheney's accident
http://news.yahoo.com/s/usnw/20060213/pl_usnw/the_human...

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, issued the following statement after learning that the Vice President shot a man during a quail hunt in Texas on Saturday:


"Vice President Cheney just seems to keep topping himself on the hunting front. First, he showed terrible judgment by hunting ducks with Justice Antonin Scalia when his office had business before the Supreme Court. Then, he went on an exclusive private shooting spree in Pennsylvania and shot dozens, perhaps hundreds, of stocked pheasants at a drive-thru canned hunting operation -- where the pen-raised birds were treated as nothing more than living targets. Now, he's shot a hunting companion in his latest hunting venture. We don't quite understand his obsession with shooting animals, and we'd advise him to pursue a less violent form of relaxation and get on with the important business of leading the country."

14. Bet Scalia'll think twice b/f he goes hunting with The Dick again
Of course, The Dick's not likely to invite Scalia again anytime soon--Dick and his holdings haven't got any more cases pending b/f the Supreme Court, that I know of.

A small donation will be on the way very soon.

I applaud Wayne Pacelle for taking this position.

17. Over there on the Repug site
the Fweepers are saying that it was the victim's fault. They also want to send Teddy Kennedy and Hillary Clinton out with Cheney on his next hunt hahaha. When oh when are the press going to ask about liquor in this incident? As a good Wyomin' boy myself
I bet you dimes to dollars it did have a role:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Maybe that's why they waited 24 hours, for Cheney to sober up and get the Jack and coke off his oleaginous breath.

19. I've heard that hunting lions is much more interesting than quail hunting
when using a couple of pounds of pork chops for bait, a net and a gunny sack. It's also much more humane. Some hunters might wish to try this.

20. Stocked Hunts?
he isn't a Dick, he's a pussy (cat).

I would be rolling on the floor laughing, but thinking of all those animals being senselessly killed kind of ruin the humor of it.

36. Please don't use the word "Pussy" in a derrogatory mode!
Pussy is a nice thing!

I adore Pussy!

I suggest that WIMP be used instead.

Instead use "Pussy" in a superlative;

"Wow! That is a really PUSSY car you have there!"

"Michael Stipe's new EP is so Totally PUSSY!"

"Wow! I'm stoned! That was some really PUSSY weed!"

29. It's quite common to hunt stocked quail fields.
They are pen-reared and then released so that the hunters can have a go at them. It's not really a canned hunt.

Sounds like a real challenge for the hardy "sportsman".

37. See this thread

Shooting 70 tame birds is canned hunt if you ask me. It sure as hell isn't sport.

31. They don't understand?
Edited on Mon Feb-13-06 07:00 AM by BiggJawn
"We don't quite understand his obsession with shooting animals..."

That's easy. Because as of yet, it's not legal for the Vice Pretzeldent of Murka to have them turn prison inmates loose for him to shoot.

Or perhaps they'll wait until they start filling those rumoured camps with Liberals and Atheists to pick from.

We Atheists are cunning, y'know....

Go figure. Howard Dean calls for his resignation on "Face to The Nation" and TinMan shoots somebody. Bet he was thinking about Gov. Dean when he pulled the trigger.

32. Sad is it not? The HSA statement is tougher than our "leaders"
daily mealy-mouthed, half assed, parsed words about the never ending scandals that leave us with our jaws on the floor.

33. And he's one of those "hunters" who shoot tamed, partially lame game
I'll bet. The kind that don't even have a fair chance of getting away.

But then, that's similar to his treatment of Katrina victims, and elderly on new Medicare Part D, etc.

The man is TRULY heartless...literally. Has been for years.
