The Vice President Of The United States Shot Someone This Weekend

posted 13 February 2006

Actually shot someone, and then just hoped nobody would find out.

Apparently, this was only 2nd-page news in the US today. Hello! Your second-in-command seriously injured someone with a rifle? Is this the kind of wacko you want running your country? Can you imagine if a UK politician did this, how quickly he would be gone? But in the US it's barely even a scandal that he tried to cover it up, far less that he shot someone in the first place.

The United States is fucking crazy.

Update: And if ignoring it doesn't work, why not joke about it? Because it's not like the guy may die from his wounds right? Oh? Oh. [via Ed]
