We have another cartoon in the works about the ongoing Mohammed Cartoon Jihad but couldn't resist taking this quick shot (so to speak).

From FoxNews: Cheney Accidentally Shoots Hunter in Texas.

Late night comedy stars are probably planning a slew of new jokes after news broke Sunday that Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a hunting buddy.

Harry Whittington, 78, was hunting quail with Cheney on Armstrong Ranch in south Texas when Cheney sprayed his friend with birdshot. Bird shot disperses a spray of small pellets rather than a single larger shotgun round. ...

Roll Call Executive Editor and FOX News contributor Mort Kondracke said since Whittington wasn't hurt badly, it's unlikely much damage would be done to Cheney's reputation as a politician or a hunter. He added that Americans are likely to be deluged with late-night jokes in the coming days.

"This will just play into 'Dick Cheney is a meanie kind of guy, but we didn't know that he shot people too.' That sort of thing, but all fun and games," Kondracke said.
