"Cheney seemed not to know basic safety rule"

If Vice President Dick Cheney had followed the protocols taught 12-year-olds in hunter education programs, he never would have shot his pal last weekend while quail hunting, according to hunting safety experts.

To make matters worse, it turns out that Cheney wasn't even licensed to hunt quail in Texas. But no one, not even Dick Cheney, is above the law, right?

The arrogance of Cheney and Bush is galling even to the most jaded political observer. Even when they make a colossal mistake, often breaking the law in the process, they never admit that they're wrong. I suppose some Americans view this as a virtue, but not me.
