Making Dick Cheney Proud

According to the LA Times, in an amazing coincidence just before the Wisconsin primary (a big deer hunting state), Hillary Clinton has let it slip that she once went hunting and shot a poor defenseless duck. Today, on the eve of voting, the New York senator remembered more details about hunting once in Arkansas with male colleagues and standing in chilly water early one morning.

“They said, ‘We won’t shoot. You shoot,’ ” Clinton told reporters. “They wanted to embarrass me. So, OK, the pressure was on. So I shot, and I shot a banded duck. And I was as surprised as they were.”

Well, at least she’s a better shot than Dick Cheney.

(sound of crickets chirping)

I’m here all week, folks. Try the chicken.

P.S.: I hear Obama’s planning to shoot a duck as well, just to keep things even. Of course, he’s taking no chances. He’s aiming at a lame one.
