Dick Cheney took the judge handling his Supreme Court case out for a hunting trip. They are saying this might, just might, constitute a conflict of interest. I’d say it does. It’s got to be hard choosing between using proper rifle technique and maintaining a firm grip on the Vice President’s balls.

Then again, one might say Judge Scalia was the one showing balls, just by going on the trip. Cheney looks like a guy who knows how to make “hunting accidents” happen.

Friday’s forecast: No, Mr. President, you didn’t miss out on anything. I said “showing balls,” not “snowy 8-balls.”
