The Vice President Of The United States Shot Someone This Weekend

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]
