What Moved Dick To Do It?

Oliver North has been making the rounds of the TV. talk-shows joking about a sniper in Iraq who took a pot-shot at him and missed. He observes that the sniper was “obviously trained by French girl-scouts and not Dick Cheney” thereby confirming what I’ve long suspected; Ollie, White House insider, North is confirming that Dick shot his friend intentionally. The only question left unanswered now is why?

Perhaps the elderly lawyer wondered aloud what the day’s body count was in Iraq. We know Dick doesn’t like that. Or maybe he asked how Dick could be one of the architects of an administration that marginalizes gays when one of his own children is gay. (Congratulations to Dick and Lynne, by the way, on the pregnancy of their daughter Mary and her partner.) He might have even attempted friendly banter about Kellogg, Brown, and Root, part of the Halliburton family that Dick was the head of, and their involvement in human trafficking that was exposed in the Chicago Tribune’s “Pipeline to Peril”. Dick couldn’t have been too pleased about the potential negative impact to the companies’ bottom line. Having to actually house people humanely and pay them fairly? Dick’s blood had to have been boiling. Maybe while belting one back before going out with loaded weapons Dick’s pal brought up the pesky fact that a large percentage of Americans seem to be coming out of their terror-induced stupors. Or could it have simply been that Dick was driven to shoot his buddy in a jealous rage fueled by his chum’s flawlessly smooth complexion?

While we may never know what it was that triggered the shooting, we can at least rest assured that if Dick shoots at you he does it well, unlike that namby-pamby sniper. And if you don’t believe that, you don’t know Dick.

And Dick, just a suggestion, guys with reputations like yours should really insist on being called Richard.

Hi Woman. First thanks for your comment at PP. I like the looks of your blog.

Hmmm.... if Ollie is a White House Insider, as you say then he mist be lying. ;-)

Deadeye Richard is as competent a shot as Crawford Caligula is a peace-maker.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you for the kind words tomcat! Hmmm, point well taken about insiders being liars, however, we need to keep in mind that they also tend to possess incredible stupidity , sort of like the woman who flags the police officer down because the woman who sold her a supply of illicit drugs didn't give her the correct change... And Gene, straight to the penalty box for you!

Q. How do you tell the difference between a dead dog in the road and a dead lawyer in the road?
A. There are skid marks in front of the dog. ;-)

Women, while you raise an excellent point, I think the level of stupidity has increased exponentially in recent years, given Dubya's distaste for appointing anyone more competent than he is.
