Dick Cheney v. "Wedding Crashers" - Life Imitating Art

This past Wednesday (February 15), Vice President Dick Cheney finally admitted that he shot a friend while hunting over the weekend. The media's got its panties all up in a bunch over the fact that he waited over 72 hours to go public with this announcement. But what REALLY interests me about this whole debacle is how the same exact thing happened to Vince Vaughn's character in the hysterical summer blockbuster, "Wedding Crashers."

Vaughn's character was even hit with the same type of bullet! You know, the kind that you hunt birds with - it's basically just a little packet of gunpowder that explodes into hundreds of bits when you fire it in order to more easily target a flying bird. In "Wedding Crashers," this type of bullet hit Vaughn in the rear ...with hilarious results! With Cheney, however, the hilarity is not so great - his friend was said to be hit with anywhere from 5 but less than 200 bits of gun powder, one which lodged into his heart but thankfully was not fatal.

Methinks Cheney has watched this movie too many times. I always suspected the Bush administration was a Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson fan, but come ON boys... What's next, an "Old School" imitation?! Taco Belle certainly hopes so.

While this event is a tragedy, I must look on the bright side. Since Dick hasn't shot a load in 30 years I consider this a sign of good things to come. Now if you'll pardon me, I have a beaver that needs skinning.
