On February 11, 2006, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old Texas attorney, while participating in a quail hunt on a ranch in Kenedy County, Texas. Whittington was shot in the face, neck, and upper torso with birdshot pellets from a 28-gauge Perazzi shotgun.

First public news of the incident was called in to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times on February 12, 2006, by ranch owner Katharine Armstrong. [1] The Bush administration disclosed the shooting incident to the public the afternoon of February 12. Local authorities released a report on the shooting on February 16, 2006 and witness statements on February 22. All of the witness statements conflict with the Sheriff‘s reports over the time of the shooting. (see ‘Time of Shooting’ below).

On February 14, 2006, Whittington suffered a non-fatal “silent” heart attack and atrial fibrillation due to at least one lead-shot pellet lodged in or near his heart. [2] Cheney did not speak publicly about the incident until February 15 in an interview with Fox News.

Who’s Your Candidate?

February 7, 2008

Sometimes, getting political candidates crammed down your throat for two years before an election still isn’t nearly enough throat-cramming to help you make your electoral decision. Instead of reading boring newspapers or watching tedious debates, just take this easy quiz and figure out which candidate best describes you.

Note: Everything above was completely ripped off from Holy Taco. I’m not gonna bother with any excuses, other than to admit that I’m frickin’ lazy.

It’s Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Birthday!

January 30, 2008

There are the obvious reasons why contemporary historians would argue FDR as the greatest president in the history of the United States: he put the kibosh on the Great Depression with his New Deal program. His “arsenal of democracy” prevailed over Nazi Germany. He restructured the federal government to where it protected the little guy instead of Big Business. Yet Roosevelt had accomplished an even greater feat.  He made the most sensible, heroic, and utterly compassionate executive decision ever by anyone who resided at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

He repealed Prohibition.

Before you go out tonight to celebrate this brilliant legacy, make sure you read up a bit on the man – I would suggest a quick trip over to Modern Drunkard Magazine – specifically to this fine article:

Neocon Bingo

January 29, 2008

Just a week from today we will have “Super Tuesday” thrust upon us.

If you’re anything like me, just listening to any of the assholes involved in the republican primaries makes you want to start drinking heavily.

Unfortunately, watching power-hungry jerk-offs and drinking doesn’t always make the greatest social event. Well, it can be now that Gin & Taco’s have introduced “Neocon Bingo”.

All you need to do to prepare is to click this link – The Neocon Bingo Game – and print out the card. Once printed, hit F5 for a new card and continue printing until you have bingo cards for everyone. From there, all you need to do is make sure you mark your card and take a big ol’ swig every time your category gets mentioned.

It should be noted that this game can be played pretty much anytime or anywhere. All you need to do is switch on Fox News, tune into Bill O’Reilly’s, read through the Wall Street Journal editorials (or Bill Kristol’s new column in the New York Times) or browse any of the many “conservative” websites here on the Information Superhighway.

Have fun!
