Am I the only one that thinks the VP's participation in all of this is kind of questionable?
He boasts himself to be a great hunter as if he's up early in the morning, quietly and patiently tracking some game and then due to skill and perseverance, bags a few for dinner. Yeah, right.
In reality, he goes to a game farm where quail are raised in captivity and taken out into the fields in crates. When the VP and his buddies drive up in a car (?!?), some flunky opens the crates and out come the little birds. They walk a few strides from the car (and the single malt scotches) and blow them away, taking out a lawyer in the process.
It's not exactly what I'd call a "sport".
It's hard to imagine what Cheney does with all his dead birds. Really, he's too big a guy to think he actually eats those tiny things.
The euphamism "peppering" sounds like the guy was being prepared for some culinary excursion, not a hunting trip. "Hey Man! where's the salt?!"
I guess this is the right forum for this discussion after all.
